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 of the pages you want to print.
Choose File > Print.
Choose any of the following print options:
To print only selected thumbnails: Select Selection in Preview.
To rotate images or pages automatically so they fill up as much of the paper as possible: In the Preview section, select Auto Rotate.
To include any notes that are visible in a PDF’s window: In the Preview section, select Show Notes to include them in the printout.
To scale an image or page: In the Preview section, 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.
To print the same image or page multiple times on one sheet of paper: In the Preview section, click the “Copies per page” pop-up menu, then choose a number.
To print multiple pages per sheet of paper: Click the Pages per Sheet pop-up menu in the Layout section (you may need to scroll down), then choose the number of pages to appear on each printed page.
