Printing from Photoshop is at once a primitive and sophisticated experience. On the primitive side, the program is designed to print one image per page. There's 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.
But 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 hundreds or even thousand copies of your artwork for mass distribution. Second, Photoshop understands that regardless of your destination, you want the colors that you see on screen to translate accurately onto the printed page.
After spending some time on those topics, I end this chapter with a look at two output features that allow you to combine multiple images together. The first lets you assemble single page contact sheets. The second lets you assemble images into a multipage PDF document. One you can then print all at once from Adobe Reader or Acrobat. Sure, you can press Cmd or Ctrl + P and let her rip. Or you can learn about all your output options, as I explain in this chapter.
