17.1 Photo Contact Sheet

NeoFinder can create beautiful contact sheets of your photos as PDF files, so you can give these away for a nice representation of your work, or photos, or to simply have an overview.

Open the folder you wish to use, or an Album, or the current Found Results, then select the
Photo Contact Sheet... command from the Item menu.

NeoFinder will ask you for some options:

photo contact sheet

The first choice is the number of items you want in each row of the Contact Sheet.

It is possible to
sort the item list by several possible choices, such as the name, date, EXIF date, or size.

You can limit the Contact Sheet to just items that actually have a thumbnail in NeoFinder, to prevent the display of boring, generic icons.

You can also have NeoFinder display three annotation lines underneath the name of each item, just as you can do in the Icon View. Here, the XMP Location, Object name, and the technical item details have been selected. This also includes and
custom annotation field you may have added.

NeoFinder is also able to add a nice looking Header to each page of the generated PDF, with the title of the folder or album you are displaying, and the number of pages.

Last, you can add a custom Footer text that will appear on each page.
A cool tip here is that you can set up this text in any font and size. Just use the context menu in this text field, and select "Show Fonts". Then you can set the entire text, or any part of it to all and any font and size you want.

Then simply set up the proper
Page Size you want for the resulting PDF, and hit the Start button.

NeoFinder will quickly generate a beautiful PDF for you which you can store or give away to clients.


NeoFinder always uses the existing thumbnails of your catalogs for this Contact Sheet. If they are too small, please increase their size in the Cataloging Preferences for new catalogs.

To get larger thumbnails for existing catalogs, you can Update the catalog and set the option to recreate thumbnails in the new size.
