Snow Leopard contact sheet layout changes possible?

Unable to change contact sheet layout to suit my needs. E.g. I want 6 photos per page in two columns. The default option for two columns seems to be 2 or 4 photos/page. Ask for six and it creates two pages. The layout within the contact sheet seems to have lost some of the flexibility that OSX Leopard had. Is there something that I am overlooking?

Thanks for your response.
This what I do without getting the results I would like for 8.5x11 paper:
1. I select 6 photos
2. Hit "Print"
3. Select "Contact Sheet" - the 6 photos are shown at the top of the 'page' in two rows.
4. Select "Customize"
5. Select "2 columns" (in the hope of getting the 6 photos arranged on one sheet - with the sheet in portrait format. Instead I get 4 photos on one sheet and lots of blank space.
6. Select "Layout" icon. I see a sheet with 12 rectangles and a "1" in the margin. I am unable to make changes to the layout as shown.
Hopefully I have described my situation well enough for you.
Thanks
Ken

  • Change license lion to snow leopard??It´s possible?

    Hello! I recently purchased a Mac BookPro 13 'with the new Lion Ox. What is happening to me is that I'm having enough problems with this operating system, for installation problems and incompatibilities with some sound hardware that I have. Second read in some forums, the system Ox Snow Leopard remains the most reliable and stable for use with these devices.
    What I would like to know, and since the Mac Ox Lion (blame or not the manufacturers of the sound products) is not allowing me to configure my sound system. As Snow Leopard solves all the problems, can I change my license to use the Lion for a Snow Leopard license?
    Don't care about downgrade...i want my problems solved in legal terms.
    Thank you.

    this version MacBookPro 13 "2.4 HTZ / Mac os x lion is not compatible with any mac os x before, ''
    Correct.
    but supports WindowsOS???
    Also correct, via Boot Camp or one of the several virtualization solutions. Which would be the best option for you depends on the software and hardware you need to run and whether it works in a virtualized environment at all.
    So the suggestion is to return it and get an older version macbook pro? Is that it?
    I make no such suggestion as a blanket statement. But if you have determined that you require a system that can run a version of Mac OS X prior to Lion. If you do need such a system, then your only option will be to return your current system and look for an older model of Mac.
    I always need a full installation of windows, right?
    Yes.
    There is some document that I can read and learn about how to makeone good installation (procedures) using the "boothcamp" with Windows 7 Ultimate?
    It's "Boot Camp" not "boothcamp". See:

  • Snow Leopard Time Machine process question/possible problem

    For starters I want to say that I am not dealing with my own machine, but a friend's, so there's some missing information. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Ok, so my best friend bought a 15" MBP thru me during my short time as an Apple retail employee, which is how I got called in to "fix" it, although I'm still better with PCs than Macs. Anyway, it was purchased around December 2010, has at least Snow Leopard, intel i5 processor, 500 GB HD, not sure if 5000 or 7200 rpm, 4GB RAM. A day or so ago it started acting "weird" he says, like when closing google chrome the color wheel spun forever and took forever to close, and from then on every program acted the same; took forever to open and close. He said it was like there was some major process running in the background that was just using up all of the RAM and processor, leaving him with nothing to use for anything else. He shut it down and restarted it several times, but it acted the same. Sometimes he'd even have to force power it down. He then decided to do a wipe and restore with Time Machine. Thanks to google images I know for sure that he went thru all the bs with selecting what exactly to do, what restore to use, and where to install it, and that the transfer screen with the finder-to-fnder-like image and the progress bar appeared and completed fully before it automatically restarted itself. White screen with Apple logo appeared, he heard the boot up chime/BONG/WALL-E noise before the spinner wheel came up under the logo, which is where it stands now.
    The only question/concern is that it has been here for 10 hours, literally. Now the spinner is STILL spinning, that has not frozen that either of us are aware of, but both of us being so new to Macs we are completely unsure if it's ok. I did some online research and I've seen where people have had their macs freeze on boot up, but they usually don't chime; or it took like 14 hours to do the entire restore process, but they were significantly older and slower machines. Like I said, this could be status quo for this process, but I honestly do not know that. Feel free to just say "depending on the amount it's restoring, it could very well take that long, be patient" if that's the honest truth. I'm looking for verification.
    PS - his time machine backup is on an external USB hard drive, which is plugged in, and it's from November as he forgets to plug it in, but he has like photoshop and aperture, takes lots of pictures (yes we know those since November are gone), and honestly is on his MBP so much the only way I can think to describe it is that he literally uses it like a cheap whore.
    Thank you all!

    delete all drivers using the correct un-indtstall software, re-instalthe mac softeware and in stalll. GO TO SYSTEM PREFS, and select the printer and add the printer to the left side for install
    , then select that partictular printer.

  • Finder view favorites there is "today", "Yesterday" etc no more available (like in snow leopard), how I can change it back?

    In snow leopard there was in the start view of finder (I think it was in favorites) a buttom like "today", "yesterday" etc. when you use the buttom, finder has showed all your files which you have opened the whole day (today buttom). So it was easy when you have to send an mail or must work again on a file to find it without go completely step by step through the finder.
    I tried to setting "all my files" to show me the last files but this view does not show all files (only older than 2 ours) - so it is not "up to date".
    What can I do to get a solution of my problem?
    Thanks.

    They were only Smart Folders so you can easily create a new Smart Folder in Finder.
    Something like this?
    Play around with the options to see exactly what you want to see.

  • PDF, contact sheet layout

    When creating a PDF and setting the layout to have 1 column and 1 row I get a dialogue box "create gallery" and the message is "resize is undefined".  With that I am unable to save the PDF.  Any other arrangement 2x2, 4x5 etc the PDF will be completed.  Where would I go to correct this problem?

    Today is one of those days for me.  I tried to answer your e-mail but it was returned.  Sorry I didn't have the information you needed for my question.
    I ha a new MacBook Pro with Operating system of 10.5.6.  I have 4GB of memory and 2.66 GHz Intel core 2 duo. Video card is NVIDIA Geforce 9400M and 9600M GT.  I have the update to Photoshop 11.0.1 and am not sure about the update to the Adobe Output Module for Bridge.
    I just converted form HP to Mac and cs3 to cs4.  The first time I created a PDF with CS4 Bridge there was not a problem with the format I wanted but the file was to large to send via e-mail so I went back and tried to use the low quality resolution.  When I selected "Refresh Preview" I got the "resize in undefined". I just do not know where the size should be defined.
    Thanks for you help

  • Is it possible to change the number of rows while printing a contact sheet in Iphoto? Please help

    Hi guys, I am struggling to find out how to change the number of rows on a contact sheet on Iphoto , i have selected my photos and i want it to print 6 photos on each page however I am not able to do it.      Please help me out, im a Art student and i need to submit my contact sheets for an assignment  Thanks in advance guys !!!!!

    I don't think you can do that with the Contact Sheet layout.  If you have Pages or a 3rd party image editor that supports layers you can do what you want.  Or try the demo version of OmniGraffle for Mac It will run fully operational for 14 days. 

  • New PDF Contact Sheet help

    Hi,
    I am trying to use Automator to create a simple application that takes a set of images and creates a pdf contact sheet.
    When I create an application in automator with the New PDF Contact Sheet action and run it, I get an error "There was an error in processing the images (-2700) in the log. What gives - how do I solve this error? This is the only action, aside from the "Get Specified Finder Items" action.
    Oddly, it seems that the contact sheet pdf is getting created and placed in the Pictures folder. But the final result of a pdf in the location specified by the action is not getting created.
    Thanks

    I have found a work around solution, which i think maybe the origin of the problem. You will need to also install a work flow app called Life-Poster. by Jim Heid. Below is the link.
    When i installed that and used the New PDF Contact Sheet a noticed a new app in the doc called MakePDF. And the rest of my workflow worked perfectly as it did in Leopard. It seems that apple has either left out this makePDF app out of snow leopard or made a change to it in some way it is not recognized or called properly in the New PDF Contact Sheet Action.

  • Is there a way to install Japanese version of Windows 7 on my macbook (English version running Snow Leopard)?

    Hi,
    I need to use some Japanese software which have to be installed on a computer running Japanese Windows OS in order for them to work properly.  My macbook was purchased in Canada, meaning running English version of Snow Leopard.  Is such thing possible?
    Thanks!

    The language of your Snow Leopard has nothing to do with whatever version of Windows you want to run, which you will have to do via Bootcamp or one of the virtual apps like Fusion or Parallels.
    If you do want to change the language of your Snow Leopard, it can be done in a few seconds by moving a different language to the top of the list in system prefs/language & text/language and then logout/login.

  • How to update screensaver that no longer works with Leopard or Snow Leopard

    Hello. I have a favorite screen saver that would no longer work when I installed Leopard...and it also does not work with Snow Leopard either.
    Can anyone tell me if I might be able to fix it and make it Snow Leopard compatible? Could I possibly open it up in Xcode or some other program, and make the appropriate changes?
    I also have several iTunes plugins that quit working when Leopard was installed...and I'd like to do the same for them.
    Thanks!

    check with the vendor of that screensaver to see if there is a SL compatible version.
    Could I possibly open it up in Xcode or some other program, and make the appropriate changes?
    only if it's an open source screensaver with source code included. impossible otherwise.

  • Why cant i install Mac os x snow leopard on my Imac early 2011

    I have mac OS x mountain lion and I'm trying to downgrade to snow leopard by making a partition and trying to boot the install dvd that I just got but when I try to boot the install dvd by holding down (c) or doing it in the system preferences > start up disk the apple logo just appears can someone help

    There is no Early 2011 iMac. There are Mids and Late. That's it. Mids came with 10.6.6 or 10.6.7. The Late requires 10.7. It's a convoluted process for the Mids, but you can install Snow Leopard on them.
    How To Run Snow Leopard On A New Mac
    This does not apply to new Mac Minis or MacBook Airs. When newer models are introduced that also require Lion for hardware support, the techniques described below will no longer work with the possible exception of using Parallels 7.
    What has to be done:
      1. Create a new partition on the hard drive.
      2. Get a clone of a 10.6.8 Snow Leopard system. Put the cloned Snow Leopard
            system onto the new partition.
    Step One: Create a new partition on the hard drive
    To resize the drive and create a new partition do the following:
      1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the
                   COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart
                   the  computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until
                   the boot  manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the
                   downward  pointing arrow button.
              After the main menu appears select Disk Utility and click on the Continue button. Select the hard drive's main entry then click on the Partition tab in the DU main window. 
    2. You should see the graphical sizing window showing the existing partitions. A portion may appear as a blue rectangle representing the used space on a partition.
    3.           In the lower right corner of the sizing rectangle for each partition is a resizing gadget. Select it with the mouse and move the bottom of the rectangle upwards until you have reduced the existing partition enough to create the desired new volume's size. The space below the resized partition will appear gray. Click on the Apply button and wait until the process has completed.  (Note: You can only make a partition smaller in order to create new free space.)
    4.           Click on the [+] button below the sizing window to add a new partition in the gray space you freed up. Give the new volume a name, if you wish, then click on the Apply button. Wait until the process has completed.
    You should now have a new volume on the drive.
    It would be wise to have a backup of your current system as resizing is not necessarily free of risk for data loss.  Your drive must have sufficient contiguous free space for this process to work.
    Step Two: Obtain a clone of a Snow Leopard system:
    You will need access to a Mac already running Snow Leopard. You will need a 16 GB USB flash drive or an external hard drive to which you can clone the Snow Leopard system from the Mac that has Snow Leopard installed. Alternatives are:
    Option One:
    Install a new Snow Leopard system onto a USB flash drive. Boot the Mac used for installing with the USB flash drive. Update the flash drive system to 10.6.8 using the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard. Verify that you can boot the Mac with the USB flash drive.
    Take the USB flash drive to your new Mac and try booting from it. If it works then clone the system from the flash drive to the newly made partition:
              Clone using Restore Option of Disk Utility
      1. Open Disk Utility from the Utilities folder.
      2. Select the destination volume from the left side list.
      3. Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
      4. Check the box labeled Erase destination.
      5. Select the destination volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination
          entry field.
      6. Select the source volume from the left side list and drag it to the Source entry field.
      7. Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    Destination means the new partition on the internal drive. Source means the USB
    flash drive.
    Option Two:
    If you have a large enough external drive you can erase and use, then it would be easier to just clone the entire Snow Leopard system from the source Mac computer to the external drive.
              Clone using Restore Option of Disk Utility
      1. Open Disk Utility from the Utilities folder.
      2. Select the destination volume from the left side list.
      3. Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
      4. Check the box labeled Erase destination.
      5. Select the destination volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination
          entry field.
      6. Select the source volume from the left side list and drag it to the Source entry field.
      7. Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    Destination means the external drive. Source means the Snow Leopard Mac's
    internal drive.
    After cloning verify that it will boot the source Mac. If so then take the external drive to your new Mac boot with it. If all is well then restore the clone to the new partition on your new Mac:
              Restore the clone using Disk Utility
      1. Open Disk Utility from the Utilities folder.
      2. Select the destination volume from the left side list.
      3. Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
      4. Check the box labeled Erase destination.
      5. Select the destination volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination
          entry field.
      6. Select the source volume from the left side list and drag it to the Source entry field.
      7. Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    Destination means the new partition on the internal drive. Source means the external drive.
    You will need a retail copy of Snow Leopard. If you need to purchase Snow Leopard contact Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service. The price is $29.00 plus tax. You will receive physical media - DVD - by mail.

  • LR 3 Contact Sheet Caption Problem

    I am using LR 3.0 on a Win XP machine.  I want to print a multiple line caption below each picture on a multi-row, multi-column contact sheet using the single image contact sheet layout style.  I have set up a preset in the photo info panel with the information I want and how I want it to appear below each image on the contact sheet.
    My problem is after I have everything set as I want and see in the first page when I select another set of images or another page the preview will only show the first line of the multi-line caption.  I have to make some change to any one item in the layout panel such as change a margin or cell spacing or change to another layout and back in the photo info panel for all lines of the caption to appear. If this is not done, the actual print will only show one line of the caption.  The multi-line caption worked fine in LR 2.
    I have searched forums, blogs, etc for help and have not found an answer to my problem.  Has anyone experience this problem and found a solution?

    Hi there
    Seems like it is a bug - if so you can report it to Apple by choosing Provide Aperture Trial Feedback from the Aperture menu within the program.
    Printing seems to be the main thing from prevent AP3 from being useful to me currently, inability to make presets 'stick', border printing around an image even when no border is selected. There's probably more problems in printing but I'm kind of disheartened to use it to find any more, it's cost me a lot of wasted time already.
    Take care
