Yesterday I had a request from my wife for me to print multiple small copies of an image she had to be passed out at a forthcoming meeting.

No probs. says I.

Open the jpg in AP (my default image editor) and hit print.

Hmm..  What next?

Start again by importing image into unused Apple Photo.

Duplicate 60 times - select all - hit print - select custom & printer settings. Hit print. Done.

Frustrating that the print in AP is 'so' basic.

DUH!

Is there a video instruction to do this?

Guess my fear of layers kicked in.

Forget that last bit.

Just completed your way in just about a minute.

Command J did not seem to work originally but got there in the end.

I suppose I was just looking in the wrong place. ie:- using a printing dialogue as you would in publisher - instead of creating a new image in AP and then going to the print dialogue.

As I said DUH!!!!!

Afraid I am still prone and getting proner;) to these blank brain periods.

Problem Solved.

Power duplicate only works if you move the object first and do not perform any other tasks in between. 

To 'power duplicate':

1.Select a layer(s).

2.From the Layer menu, select Duplicate.

3.Transform the duplicated layer content.

4.From the Layer menu, select Duplicate. A duplicate is created and the transform is automatically applied to the duplicate.

5.Repeat step 4 to create more duplicates with the transform accumulatively applied.

In 1.7, one can also consider specifying "N-Up" printing in the Layout section of the Print dialog.
