Print to size in Windows 11
If you want to manually resize, crop and position your photos instead of using fixed layout for printing multiple photos on one page, you can do so with any image editor app that allows you to insert, resize and crop multiple pictures on one page. In Windows 11, you can use the preinstalled Paint 3D app to do the job.
The instructions below will show you how to insert multiple photos, manually resize, position and print them on one page in Windows 11 using Paint 3D.
- Search for and open Paint 3D via Start menu.
- In the Paint 3D app, click Menu and select Insert. Then, browse to the photo you want to insert. As you can insert only one picture each time, repeat the process to insert other photos you want to include to the page.
- After inserting a picture, you can resize and crop it as you wish, and move it to anywhere you like on the page.
- Once you’re satisfied with the page, to print the page, click Menu and select Print > 2D print.
- In the print preview, configure any option as needed, and then click Print to proceed printing the page.
