Default Photoshop CS: What is Pixels for a 8.5x11 Sheet of Paper

I am doing a school collage and I want to know a few things:

1. I have only 8.5x11 sheets of paper (Photo Paper), CS will not allow me to size a image using Inches. Just Pixels, what would I then set the pixels to to fill a sheet of paper?

I have to take 2 sheets of paper and create a somewhat seemless collage by taping/gluing/stapling the 2 (8.5x11) sheets together so they form a rectangle. In the center, I want a large word, but it will have to transfer from the first page over to the next. I think I can do THIS however. Just I dont know where to begin. Thanks a lot

Well.. Thats a good question. I have no idea. What do you reccommend for a photojet printer to use for DPI?

I restarted CS and now I have the "A4" Template, and now I can begin my project.
Does anyone have any reccommendations for me on the collage (Im new to photoshop).

Also, what would be the best way of going around this "Connecting" these 2 sheets of of 8.5x11 so they appear as though it is seemless intigration (Picture wise) from one sheet to another? (2 Seperate Photoshop projects? Is there a way to have a 11x17 template and print ONLY 1/2 of it so I can print the other half second to insure seemlessness?)

Any ideas? Thanks

Assuming 300 DPI (frex), resolution should be 2550 x 3300.

If you want to match up the pages seamlessly, double the width of the original image (in this case, to 5100 pixels), put your words/image in the center, then select half the image, paste it as a new image, print it, and repeat with the other half.

Another Question: How Can I find out where the Horizontal Center of the page is? (I have to take this 11x17 sheet of paper and divide it into 4 sections, I want to make sure the dividers are evenly spaced.

Use the ruler in Photoshop.

Drag from the ruler to your document to place guides.

Turn on guide "snap", and the guides will "snap" into place automatically at the center of each axis.

And then try it out on plain paper before spending expensive photo paper.

just for everyone to know pixels are short for pixel element. Their is a pixel to inch converter at http://www.classical-webdesigns.co.u...chconvert.html Traditionally they are 1/72nd of an inch (A font size of 72 is one inch) but with different DPIs it changes.
