On your computer or USB drive, make a folder that only contains the images that you want to include in your contact sheet.
With in Photoshop go to File/Automate/Contact Sheet II

2: First, choose the folder you created with your images, or you can also choose the images you have open in Photoshop. For class, it may be easier for you to create folder and do it that way.

3: Next make sure to make the Document size 8.5 by 11 inches. Set your resolution to 200 pixels/inch. Make sure to check Rotate For Best Fit and Use Filename As Caption.
Then click OK.

4: If you use a Folder to create your contact sheet then Photoshop will open all of your images and create copies of them and merge them all into one file that will look like this.

5: Now with this file selected, save your contact sheet as a jpeg to turn in.

6: When the prompt screen appears change the format to JPEG and click save.

7: And when choosing JPEG options make sure the slider is all the way to the right, and use Baseline “Standard” options. Click OK.
