Combine photos for printing




Printing photos in Windows 7 on a glossy paper or photo paper with multiple photos can easily be done using the default windows photo viewer.

Default photo viewer has also pre-defined sizes that can easily be selected.

See image below:



To set the paper size, color, the paper tray settings click on “options” which can be found on the lower right corner of the default photo viewer.

How to set multiple photos in one sheet for printing?

Open the folder which has the photos or pictures; to select four or more pictures click on each picture while holding the “control key” of the keyboard.

Then do a right click on the mouse or press “shift key” + “f10” on the keyboard and select print.

This will open the default windows photo viewer, select the desired size, click on options to set printer properties and click print. This will take time to spool especially if the photos are quite large in size. Be patient, while its being set for printing.

If you need to print only one picture or photo but multiple prints on one sheet, make multiple copies of the same photo and do same procedure as above. Select the photos while holding the control key of the keyboard and print.

Photos to be  combined should have same height and width or else some photos will be cropped.


Cheers!! Hope it helps..

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.
A simple rule of thumb before any disaster strike, don't interchange the source and the destination.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.
