i too faced the same situation a couple of weeks ago & after reading many articles(mostly using photoshop which i don't like)i finally figured a simple,easy & free way to do it.
first create a folder & paste the target image 16 times into that folder so that there are 16 images(identical or not depends on your choice but identical for self-photos to be pasted on forms just like those shopkeepers do for multiple copies of your photo).

install irfanview(excellent free image editor with just 8mb size).click on file---thumbnails,a new window will open.select your folder from the left hand side selection tree.right hand side will now show the 16 images in the folder.using right-click select all the 16 images & select the "create contact sheet from the selected files" option.in the new window that opens select standard dimension A4 & image parameter as row 4 & column 4.click on create & irfanview will create a single jpg file of A4 size containing 16 images(4*4) which you can print(try ordinary paper first,it took me 2 attempts to perfect the process but since nobody posted step-by-step instructions for me you should be able to understand in 1 attempt).once perfected yo can print on photo-paper.

wow..thanx whitestar for the info..will try that...

I was thinking if there is a blank template available for passport photos where I can just copy paste my photo's & print on A4
so,the template should be perfect for A4 size printing..

Q: Do we get the same length?for e.g: if I print on A4 a rectangle of length say 100mm X 120mm..will I get the same dimension on the output print?

if by blank template you mean in software then it is there in photoshop.if you have not selected any resizing option then as long as the image dimension are within A4 dimension(297mm width*210mm height) the output image will have same dimension as input.my suggestion is don't get confused if all you need is passport size photos for forms & just follow what i earlier posted.

@RCuber,i will try when i get the time.

@meetdilip,i tried photoscape & it is good.for those who want nice gui with lots of options it is a useful program & it also has a blank template option in print setting(like in photoshop)where you can define no. of rows & columns & then drag individual photos inside boxes.for me since i am already familiar with irfanview i will keep using it but will also keep photoscape as an alternative/backup.

not directly but yes.also the concept is same to irfanview only with addition of nice gui & drag & drop feature.try both & use whatever you feel simpler.

Use any photo printing software. I use HP photo printing suite. They have the photo size & paper size per-scaled.
