Photo Printing and Editing

i have an HP photo printer, works fine works good, but i have one thing id like to change about the software, it will print, 1 pic per page up to 4, then it skips to 35, i would like to fit 6 onto one page, is there anyway i can upgrade my current software to do this? Or can you suggest a good FREE program i can use to do this, all i want is to print, 6 pics per page landscape (horizontaly ^^). Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

re:

Did it not come with HP Photo software? The album creator allows you to select the photos you want to print, select a 6 photo template and drag/drop each photo in.

What makes up HP Photo and Imaging software?

You could try Picasa from google, its free but not sure about the layout selections. http://picasa.google.com/features/features-print.html

Edit RAW images?

I was working with some RAW images, adjusting, converting, etc. and noticed that after I saved the JPG image, it was only aroung 500k. Is this right, since the original RAW image was over 7 MB?

The crop tool can change the resolution of the picture, just make sure you leave the Resolution box blank. If you crop with a number like 72 or 100 in the resolution box you will throw a lot of pixels out.

Photo editor recommending, please

i wonder if anyone knows of a simple (and hopefully cheap) program that will solve my problem. I have several hundred photos of varying dimensions. Some are landscape and others are portrait. I need to create images of uniform size to use in a video editing program. What I need is to pull the photo in, center it on the "slide" and fill the unused space with a background color.

Batch capability is a need as well if at all possible.

I know Powerpoint will perform a similar function but the quality of the images it outputs is pretty week.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

re:

Ok, this doesn't do EVERYTHING you asked, but Windows has an add-on which is a picture resizer. It plugs in straight into Explorer. Just select the pictures you want and choose resize. No matter what the resolution of the photos, it will resize them to a set size. (it doesnt do background colouring)

Its part of the XP power tools pack and can be downloaded here:
