    How can I print multiple documents at a time? I have over 600 images to print & if there's an easier way, which I imagine there is, I would love to know. I'm trying to print CMYK .tiffs
    I tried this, but it did not work: See below.

    From Mac Help:

    Printing by dragging documents

    If the Print Center icon is visible, for example in the Dock, you can print documents by dragging them to the icon.

    In the Finder, make sure you can see the Print Center icon in the Dock, on the desktop, or in a window.

    Select the files you want to print and drag them to the Print Center icon.

    To get a printed list of the contents of a folder, drag the folder's icon to the Print Center icon.

    Thanks, JP

    Use an AppleScript?

    Why don't you try writing an AppleScript that looks in a specific folder for TIFF images to print, then sends them to Preview (or some other AppleScript-aware application) for printing? AppleScript seems like a perfect solution because it's easy to learn and the resulting script can be reused later.

    iPhoto does a nice job handling big batches of photos. Not sure if it can handle CMYK though.
