I am trying to print a contact sheet of a recent trip I made, and I would like the photo number (top left hand corner as displayed on the screen) to be printed out on the contact sheet.

Can anybody please help ?

Brian,

This requires a manual process.

  1. Do the math and crop/resize the pictures from your trip so that they will fit on the paper stock used for printing the collage.
  2. Go File>new>blank file, enter the w&h of the paper, and resolution of the picture files. This will be your canvas. If the pictures are not via the same camera, it is good practice to have a uniform resolution value for the pictures and the canvas, For printing, it is desirable to have the resolution in the 240-300 px/in range.
  3. Copy/paste each picture to the canvas. Each picture will come in on a separate layer. So, if you are dealing with 6 pictures, you should have 7 layers: Background layer(canvas) and 6 layers with a picture on each one.
  4. Access the move tool and position each picture.
  5. Open a blank layer at the top of the stack of layers, and press CTRL+SHIFT +ALT+E. This is a stamp visible layer, a combination of the layers below.
  6. Activate the Type tool and number the pictures to suit.
  7. Should you find it necessary to abort, delete the stamp visible layer, and generate a new one as delineated in step #5.

Thanks for the information.   I obviously did not present my problem clearly enough.

I have over 400 photographs which I took on a trip to the Holy Land, and I want to print all of them out on a contact sheet (7 rows with 5 across) and have them numbered, top left hand corner, so I can review which photographs I can include in an album I am compiling. 

Earlier versions of Photoshop Elements printed out the number automatically, but Version 2018 does not do it.  (Or most probably I don't know how to enable the feature.)

Another question:  I notice that P/S 2018 has discontinued the ability to burn an album to a DVD.   Am I missing something??

Thanks and regards
