To create a contact sheet, follow these steps:
- In the Browser window, select the images you want to include in the PDF contact sheet.
- On the toolbar, navigate to “Export” and then select “Export to PDF.”

Select paper size and orientation: After selecting “Export to PDF,” you will need to choose the paper size and orientation for your PDF contact sheet. You can typically find these options in the PDF export settings or preferences. Common paper sizes include A4, Letter, Legal, etc., and you can choose between portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal) orientation depending on your preferences and the layout you want for your contact sheet.
Select the number of images that will appear on one page. Additionally, you can check the “Show Border” checkbox if you want to include a border around each image on the contact sheet. These options allow you to customize the layout and appearance of your contact sheet according to your preferences.
