    I haven't been using printers for ages so I have a couple of questions:

    1- How can I print four images/pages on 1 sheet using ios?

    I tried using OS 9 print option and Brother iScan app but I don't know how to do it. Print Pro from Readdle seems to have the option but I don't know how to use it.

    2-How can I print on 2 sides/duplex using iOS?

    When I chose to print a website(wikipedia article) I got the options for double side but I didn't get it with images in the camera roll.

    1, you'd need to use an app like pages or keynote to put all 4 prints on a single page then print it.

    2, it won't allow a double sided photo due to the page saturation.

    thanks for your help, can you elaborate on point 2? I am printing black and white images on a laser printer.

    iOS dosnt factor in printer type so it will stop you double siding images due to inkjet style printers soaking the page.

    The work around like point 1 is to just open pages drag the images in and print 2 sided.

    It's honestly something that I've gotten so used to doing it's become automatic.
