Printing from Photoshop is it once a very primitive and a very sophisticated experience. On the primitive side, the program is designed to print one image per page. There is no way to print multi-page documents. Even if you open multiple files, you can't print them all in one fell swoop. You have to print each image in turn. You could even argue that Photoshop isn't a printing program at all, rather it's intended to prepare images that you plan to import into programs that are specifically designed to amass and print pages, such as InDesign or even Illustrator.
So what's the sophisticated part? Well, what Photoshop lacks in page control, it makes up for in real-world acumen. First it realizes that you have different output destinations. Sometimes you want to print a full-color page to a printer in your home or office. Other times you want to print several hundred or even thousands of copies of your artwork for mass distribution. Second, Photoshop understands that regardless of your destination, you want the colors that you see onscreen to translate accurately on to the printed page.
That's the topic of the first half of the chapter. In the second half, I'll introduce you to two output features that allow you to combine multiple images together. The first let you output contact sheets as multi-page PDF documents. The second lets you create a fully functioning Web site in a matter of minutes, but wait. Didn't I say Photoshop prints just one image per page? Yes, I did, which is why we spend the second half of the chapter in the Bridge.
