How to Print Wallet-Sized Photos on Windows Photo Gallery

By Leonardo R. Grabkowski

Windows Photo Gallery offers you multiple printing options, including the ability to print wallet-sized photos. Wallet-sized photos are 2 by 3 inches--the perfect size to keep in your billfold or purse photo sleeve. You can print multiple copies of individual photos, or multiple photos with Windows Photo Gallery.

Printing a Single Photo

Step 1

Double-click on the photo you want to print. If Windows Photo Gallery is not your default photo viewer, right-click the photo and choose "Open With>Windows Photo Gallery."

Step 2

Make sure the photo is acceptable. If you want to adjust the brightness or color level, select "Fix" and make your selection.

Step 3

Select "Print" at the top portion of the menu. Move over to the "Layout" bar on the right. Scroll all the way down and select "Wallet." Select the number of copies per page; the default is "1," which will print one wallet-sized photo on the paper. Select up to nine per page. Any more will be printed on additional paper.

Printing Multiple Photos

Step 1

Open Windows Photo Gallery. You can find it in your start menu by selecting "All Programs." Opening the program without clicking on a specific picture will bring you to the main control panel.

Step 2

Browse the folders on the sidebar to select your photos. Select multiple photos by holding the "CTRL" button when clicking.

Step 3

Select "Print" at the top. Scroll down through the layouts and choose "Wallet." Choose the number of prints per image. You can choose as many as you want, but keep in mind only nine prints will fit on each page. Select "Print" when you've made your selection.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you are printing on special photo paper, change your paper selection under the "Paper Type" tab.
