Good question! You'll have fun with this one!
PS 911 Team says:
Sure, you use the "Picture Package" for the same print, different sizes per sheet of paper. (Quite popular with the photographers.)
Sorry, this needs to be done manually, or pick up an inexpensive program like iView Pro which allows all kinds of printing features. (Photoshop Elements offers these features as well.)
First decide on the finished resolution. Set it to work well with your printer.
Now, create an 8 x 10 page in Photoshop at that resolution. (Be aware of any margin requirements dictated by your printer.) At this point you could begin dragging images into that file using the Move tool (tap V) and then size by dragging the handles with the shift key held in.
(Shift key will constrain the scale to maintain the aspect ratio of the image!)
This method works for 'quick' assemblages, however may produce some degradation in the images. (Hopefully they're all being reduced, right?)
Open the photos to be printed and one by one change their resolution to the target resolution using Image > Image Size.
* Click the "Constrain Proportions" check box,
* Check the "Resample" box and set to "Bicubic" (for best quality)
* Then set the size of the image you want in your assemblage.
* Click okay and the image is ready to drag into the assemblage file.
* Continue until all the images have been added, and then print.
