Print PDFs and images in Preview on Mac
In Preview, you can print some or all pages in a PDF, print several selected images on the same sheet of paper, and choose whether to include the document’s notes.
You can open and print a document with Preview even if you don’t have the app that created it.
In the Preview app on your Mac, open a PDF or image you want to print.
If you want to print multiple files, you can open them in one Preview window.
To print only some of the PDF or image pages, choose View > Thumbnails, then Command-click the thumbnails for the pages you want to print.
Choose File > Print.

To scale an image or page: Select Scale, then enter a percentage.
To fill as much of the paper as possible, select Scale to Fit, then select Print Entire Image if you don’t want the image cropped, or Fill Entire Paper if you want the image cropped to the proportions of the paper.
