Fitting multiple 4×6 photos on a single 8.5×11 sheet of paper can seem challenging at first, but I assure you, it’s both cost-effective and achievable with a bit of careful planning.
Let me guide you through the process of printing multiple photos on one sheet of paper, whether you’re using a PC or a Mac computer.
How Many 4×6 can fit on an 8.5×11 sheet for printing
The simple answer is three! You can do this by:
- Placing two of 4×6 images in portrait orientation together to fill around 8×6.
- Then, let’s place the third 4×6 image into the same document.
- Rotate it 90 degrees to make it occupy 6×4 right beside the other images.
Now, you’re ready to print them! You can also refer to the photo below for an example of how this looks.
This process is perfect if you’re trying to print multiple photos on a single sheet, but it can be a little time-consuming if you gonna do it manually.

It’s a fantastic size for printing your wedding photos, displaying them in your home, or even giving them away as gifts. The 4×6 size is also the most common print that you can buy at retail stores like Walgreens and CVS. See also: Best place to print wedding photos.
