    In IPhoto I have paper set on letter and choose 5x7 for picture. The preview shows a smaller pic but I can never get two on there. I've gone into layout and set to multiple but still only displays one picture and doesn't have it turned the correct way. Any help is appreciated.

    For some reason, I lost the ability to print from iPhoto a long time ago, but I seem to remember that there isn't the option to have two of the same photo o a sheet. Just duplicate the photo and then print the two.

    Huh?

    You can't fit two 5x7 prints on an 8.5x11 piece of paper because of printer margins and whatnot.

    I can on a dell or hp. They fit perfectly. The 7 inch side is on the 8.5inch side of the paper and the top 5 inch side is on the 11 inch side next to another 5 inch side of the other picture. Just don't know if it's possible on iPhoto.

    Okay...

    Yeah, I wasn't talking about using a design program on Windows, I was referring to iPhoto.

    It keeps the margins set so people that don't know what they're doing can't screw it up.

    Just pulled it up, iPhoto, selected 2 photos, hit share and Print and 2 x 5x7 is the 5th option. Latest version of iPhoto. What version do you have?

    Oh, do you mean two up - two of the same pic?
    If that's the case, you'll likely have to duplicate your intended photo (select photo, go to Photo in menu and Duplicate / or hit CMD - D) and then select both, then print.

    ----------

    Command,
    That's exactly what I want and I just duplicated it and it only shows me one. Not like the pic u showed. U have it exactly how I need it.

    ----------

    I can get the two pics in this screen but how do I select both to print. I held shift and clicked on the other but it just switches to other pic

    Maybe if you change the # copies from 1 to 2? And change the Layout?
