In the Layout section, two options for Print layout are available:

Max size for grid – use this to set a number of columns and rows that in turn determines how many pictures will fit on one page in your chosen format.

Max count for size – several preset formats are available here. Choosing a printing size here also sets the number of pictures with given dimensions that fit on one page of the chosen size format. It is not possible to set photo dimensions that are larger than the paper’s dimensions.

Use the next group, Content Settings, to configure paper settings such as Paper color, Paper type (glossy or matte), the paper’s Orientation, the pictures’ distances from each other via the Grid width, and whether or not to print Crop marks, which make it easy to cut away a printed photo’s edges.

The bottommost settings here control Image placement. Use them to choose an Image layout from among the following options:

Crop – each photo will be added directly, without adapting it to the size of its photo box.

Fit – each photo will be resized to respect its photo box.

Use Image rotation to control rotation:

Original – places each photo into its box unrotated.

Automatic rotation – automatically rotates each photo to respect the rotation of its photo box.

Recommendations for Your ZPS Photo Prints

The fixed template for printing is actually very slightly larger than the actual fixed dimensions of the template. Because of this, our recommendations are: under Print layout, choose Max size for grid; under Image placement, choose Crop, and under  Grid width, leave 0. These settings will prevent undesirable white borders around photos’ edges.

Always check your print job’s appearance inside the program, and do not place anything important at the very edge of any of the pictures, because they may be cropped for printing purposes, depending on the print template’s precise dimensions.
