I need to print a 'contact sheet' of photographs 70mm x 45mm to fit in photo frame windows.

Any ideas about some free software etc ?

A free be with limited capability is

This out fit give away older version of very good software

The trade off is they now have your E-mail and will be nagged to buy the latest.

If you are not used to using this type program - it can be a steep learning curve for some.

You could even use M/S Word by inserting images to the page- but a learning curve and imagination will be the order of the day for all
No program will 'just do it'

Try using Irfanview Thumbnails . This is a free download available from several sites.
(search for Irfanview)

I don't know which version of Windows you are using but certainly in Vista and in 7 you can select the pictures you want, right click choose Print and on the slider at the side of the box that pops up the final one is contact print with up to 35 pictures on a page. No extra software needed but I am not sure if this feature is available for XP

I'm not sure that I really understand what is required. Is each contact photo 70 x 45 mm and what is the size of the photo frame?

well said I overlooked godd old Irfan
This will indeed do the job.

He wants to printer different pictures at the above size on one A4 page at the same time. Some included Printer Software lets you do this

Why not open your Photo editing Programs and open the pictures one by one, it should place these on top of each other. Can you not drag or resize these the Select all to show them as on page then choose print

I am using magnetic backed plastic photo frames which you can use as fridge magnets. Each photo must be 70 x 45 mm each.

Yes if you open something like e.g. Lotus Symphony you can bring say 8 photos / images onto the page and batch resize them but I was looking for a simple drag and drop solution due to the numbers I need to reproduce.

I will give Infanview a try, thank you folks !
