How to Make a Contact Sheet

by TurboCollage Team

Make Contact Sheet

Contact Sheets, sometimes known as proof sheets, contact prints, and index sheets, put together thumbnails of photos from a shoot, a holiday, an event or similar.

They have many applications. For example, photographers often use them to put photos from a shoot into one sheet, which can be passed on to clients to select the best pictures.

How do you make a contact sheet?

In this post, we will show you how to make 2 types of contact sheets — simple sheets where thumbnails are rectangular and those where thumbnails are in a particular shape.

Before we get started, download and install TurboCollage. It takes less than a minute to download and complete the installation. Download here.
