How to Print Wallet-Sized Pictures

Wallet-sized photos come in two sizes. Professional photo labs often use the standard wallet size. It measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches before the edges are trimmed and can fit up to eight wallets per 8" x 10" sheet. But Windows uses a less common size that can fit up to nine slightly smaller pictures on the same paper size. This latter type may fit better in your wallet without you having to trim the edges first.

Wallet-sized pictures are small enough to carry in your pocket.

Step

Click the Windows 7 "Start" menu. Click "Pictures." Go to the folder that contains the picture you want to print in wallet size.

Step

Click the picture. Select the "Preview" button arrow and then click "Windows Photo Viewer." Windows now displays the selected picture in Photo Viewer.

Step

Click the "Print" button on the toolbar. Click "Print" to open the 'Print Picture" dialog box.

Step

Use the drop-down menus to choose the printer, quality, paper size and other options.

Step

Look in the "Print size" area on the right column. Click "Wallet size."

Step

Click the number next to "Copies of each picture." Enter the number of copies of the picture you want to print. You can print up to nine wallets on a single 8" x 10" sheet. If the number of copies you want to print exceeds the space the paper size allows, you will need more sheets.

Step

Turn on the printer. Insert as many photo paper sheets as needed. Click the "Print" button in the Photo Viewer print dialog box.
