If you want to control exactly where to place a digital image on a printed page and you want to add a caption, use the Photoshop 7 Print Preview feature. While there are plenty of page layout applications available to create a printed page exactly as you want it, you may still want to use Photoshop 7 due to its excellent color management capabilities, if your layout requirements are relatively simple. Print Preview is particularly useful for creating simple portfolio pages, as you read in this technique.
If you want to print more than one copy of an image to a page, the Photoshop 7 Picture Package feature may meet your requirements. To get a traditional-style contact sheet showing thumbnails of all the images in a folder (or subfolders), use the Photoshop 7 Contact II feature. In this technique, you look at all three of these useful features.
The objective of the next five steps is to create a print that can be used as portfolio page. A 5" x 7" image is placed 1" from the top and 1" from the right side of the page and a caption is placed below the image.
