Printing the same image on a contact sheet

How do I insert the same image into a contact sheet. I just want it to fill the contact sheet without me having to do it manually.

The image needs to be small as it is to be added to a party invitation.

Doesn't your printer give that option

No. I can get the contact sheet on the screen in either Picassa, Lightroom or CS6 and fill it with one image, but I want the image to be in every cell/square.

Re: Printing the same image on a contact sheet

Until someone comes along who may know a quicker method I have just done a A4 sheet using the same image in 3 minutes.
I pasted the image at 150 pixels onto a blank transparent image. I then simply kept duplicating the layer and moved it into position. When I had completed the first line, 8 images, I closed the background layer and merged the 8. I carried on duplicating the layer but now had a full line of 8 in that layer.
Once that first line is done the page got filled very quickly.

Re: Printing the same image on a contact sheet

It is quite simple to do in Lightroom.

Select the contact sheet and image and tick the box "repeat one photo per page" remember to untick photo info if you do not want it under each image.

Re: Printing the same image on a contact sheet

Just too easy. Thanks OlyPaul.

Actually I had already done it through Lightroom through the picture package. The part I was missing was "Repeat one photo per page" (it didn't make sense as I wanted more than one). In the end, I followed Julianne Kost's tutorial, but couldn't see all the settings for the number of rows and columns and then I remembered my Kelby Lightroom2 manual and the rest of the info was in there.

One of my problems was that I was trying to get a precise size, which I did.

Once again thanks to Pops and Paul.
