    Say I have an array full of pictures. And when I go to view the picture within my application, it shows them fine. And when I go to print, it prints it fine too. But what if I wanted to print all of the images within my gallery and only send the printer 1 job instead of how ever many are in the gallery?

    You didn't give any detail on how your app is written. Are you using the new Leopard IKImageBrowserView?

    Anyway, essentially what you do is draw in an NSView (off screen) the pages you'd like printed. Really though this is fundamental printing in Cocoa stuff, and you should probably get it from a book or at the very least the docs since it's complicated enough that it will be tough to explain in detail in any reply to your post. Printing in Cocoa is a lot easier than it could be, but it's not trivial either and will take a little work on your part.
