This is how it works:
Go to File > Automate >Contact Sheet II
A new pop screen appears
- Select the photos from a folder of a file
- Choose the size of the document and the settings of the document
The options 'flatten all layers' gives you the possibility to create one flat image or 1 image with each photo on his own layer.
- Choose the number of rows and columns. The option use auto spacing is something I turned off because in that case your pictures are very close together. If you ask me it's better to decide for yourself what the space between the pictures should be.
- And you can choose the filename as a caption
Depending on the number of pictures and the number of rows and columns, Photoshop will create one of more Contactsheets.
The handy thing with having all on its own layer is that you can easily change the name of the files.
In the end you can save the Contactsheet as a .Jpeg or, even better, as a PDF presentation
(File > Automate > PDF presentation)
