If you want to do this when you print them out then print them one at a
time and place them on different places on the paper. I do this all the
time to save paper. For example, if I have two 3.5 X 5 inch pictures I
want to print, I print the first one with .25 inch borders on the paper
and then print the second one with a .25 inch left border and a 4 inch
top border on the paper.

I like Qimage allot and use it almost exclusively for printing. In side by
side tests I think my pictures look better printed from Qimage. There is an
option to let Qimage crop your pictures to make them fit a format, which I
would never use. Other wise it reduces the image until it fits in the
selected format leaving white space around it. Or the image can be made to
span more than one page. The only use I see for this is to do a quick check
to see how a image will look when printed bigger or just for the gee-wiz of
it. I can’t find anyplace that Qimage will change the aspic ratio of an
image to make it fit a specific format. It is color managed, and sends your
picture to the printer at the native resolution of the printer. I started
using Qimage because of the strangeness that was put into printing with
Photoshop C3 and after using it I don’t use Photoshop to print at all. It
would be nice if Adobe would fix the printing in Photoshop but I think I
would still use Qimage just for the flexibility of printing more than one
image or mixed images in mixed sizes on one sheet of paper. By the way if
you do panoramas and your printer has a length limit, Qimage can fix that,
and lets you print at any length.

Well I don't earn my living from photography, but I've been an active
photographer since 1970, and had my own color darkroom from 1972 until I
switched to digital. I've had photos published in the New York Times twice
and also in the Journal of Science I’ve published articles on photo
techniques. Also the Cranbrook museum near Detroit had 6 of my prints on
display for years. One of the beauties of photography is that there is no
one right way to do anything. Anyone who uses Photoshop should know that. I
like the results I get and my audience likes my results and that is what
counts. I put out my opinion on Qimage when I see someone having a problem
that I think it might solve. I don't own stock nor am I paid by them, I'm
just trying to help.
PS: The latest testing for longevity, shows that pigment inkjet prints on
good paper, last about twice as long as conventional wet color prints, even
longer than Cibrachrome.
