Testing PS Elements for Scanning  & Printing Checks -is there a way to print as a doc not as a photo

I am testing PS Elements for Scanning  & Printing Checks -is there a way to print as a doc and not as a photo - it is a waste of ink and time to print as a photo???.  I could do it out of a very old version of Photoshop that came with my computer that ran W97 or 98, my new computer is W7-64 and I am having trouble printing jpg's as anything except a photo.  W-XP pro with old version of PS allowed me to print as a document on plain paper..Please Help.

    Hi there! Because the forum you originally posted in is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop, I moved your question to the Photoshop Elements forum, where you'll get more specialized help.

    You can try two different ways to print your photos as a document:

     

    1) Download a trial version of Adobe Acrobat XI and you it as your printer.  This creates a pdf file for you and you can just view the file on your screen or print it out using your printer;

     

    2) Windows 7 comes with Microsoft XPS Document Writer.  You can select it as your printer and save the file as a document by giving it a name;

     

    Click on this this picture to get the idea:

    Good luck.

    1. how do I get it to print?

    2. do I really need to go through all of that just to get one item to print?

    3. Is there any easer way?

     

    1) You just double click on the saved file and it will open in your browser.  If you want to print this then simply do this:

     

    File >> Print  (or click on the printer icon in your toolbar)

     

    2) To create a document yes but it should become a second nature routine.  I do it all the time because I don't like to print anything unless it is absolutely necessary.

     

    3) Practice makes it easier!!

    You should be able just to go into the printer preferences via the button in the PSE print window and choose a different setting (plain document).
