Folder Printers      (July 2007)

Folder Printers tend to be simple utilities which print the content of a folder and its subfolders. Additional features include determining what information is included in the printout and how it is formatted, exporting information to files, full path names, folders only or files only.

Review Results
This review is in work. Until the review is complete, I suggest the following application for your image resizing needs:

  • PrintFolder Pro
    PrintFolder Pro adds a Windows Explorer context menu entry to all folders. It's very easy to use and to customize the output. It supports printing contents of subfolders.

    PrintFolder Pro is available for $30.

If you're holding out for a freeware folder printer, then I suggest the following (this is the freeware version of PrintFolder Pro, from the same company):
