I need to print a 11x17 brochure double sided. I have a hp laserjet 5500 printer that is capable of duplexing. How do I need to set up my page(s)? Do I use 11x17 size or do I use 11x34 size when I tried 11X34 it shrank it down to fit on one side. Anyone have any ideas for me?

G'day Chris If you have your pages as seperate PSDs i.e. NOT one document with a layer for each page, then go File > Automate > PDF Presentation. Tick add open files (so only have the pages you want open) Tick Multi-Page Document then save, I chose JPEG and High in the options. You will end up with a multi page PDF which you should be able to print from. I suspect that there will be a script for doing this from a single multi layer PSD. Regards John

Photoshop doesn't do more than one page at a time.

Either print all the page ones individually then print them all on the reverse with page two...

... or use a layout program.

After following his steps to automate the desired images for both front and back, how did you go about getting them to print on both sides correctly?

 

Thanks

Once you're on the PDF Presentation Screen, save it as a multi-page document. Tick "Add Open Files", and duplicate the page that you want to print double-sided and save it. It should save in your files. You should be able to open the PDF document and print it from there.
