Photo printing software for home printer in questions and answers


  1. I have created a project and wish to send the result to friends as an attachment by email. Is this possible? If so, how do I do it?

    [ Print Pilot ] Go to File/Export… and Save as type: JPEG/Resolution: 100dpi. A project will be saved as a JPEG file which you can send by email.

  2. Quite often I send files with my Print Pilot projects to a photo lab for paper prints in the size 8.5 x 11 inch. The lab accepts JPG files which I generate with the export function of Print Pilot. So far I could only get Print Pilot to generate JPG files with 748 x 1092 pixels. This is not enough for paper prints in the size 8.5 x 11 inch. Do you have any recommendation on how to generate files with higher resolution?

    [ Print Pilot ] Use the Export command, select type of file .jpg or .png in the “Save as type” dialog. The Export dialog will open. Then choose “Select export resolution” which will equal 600 dpi.

  3. Is there a way to resize more than one photo at a time in Print Pilot?

    [ Print Pilot ] To resize more than one photo, choose some photos with your mouse while holding the Shift key. Then set either the width or the height in the side panel.

  4. Can I use this program to place 6 (or more) photos plus captions on standard 8.5 x 11 photo paper and print it on my home color printer?

    [ Print Pilot ] Photo Print Pilot doesn’t add captions to the photos. Please try the Print Pilot program, it allows you to add titles.

  5. I don’t really care so much about photo editing. I want a program that will allow me to place a sheet of 4×5 photo paper in my Canon S820 printer and print a 4×5 tiff image. The software that came with the printer will print a borderless 4×6 jpg file on 4×6 photo paper on the S820 printer. How can I do 4×5?

    [ Photo Print Pilot ]
    Try the following:
    – Start Photo Print Pilot;
    – Choose an image to print;
    – Click Next, then Choose Layout;
    – In the dialogue, click Setup and choose the most appropriate size of paper;
    – Click Ok;
    – After closing the dialogue, click Next and choose a format with 1 photo on the sheet;
    – Click Create.
    You should get the desired result if the printer supports the necessary size of paper.
