What program are your printing from ?
what version of windows are your running ?
what brand printer are your running ?

I am assuming you are looking for a program that you can select what files you want to print out and what ones you do not ?  I am not 100% understanding what it  is exactly that you are trying to do
1. Put the Printers folder on your Desktop, or a shortcut. (Open My Computer, drag with the Right Button onto the Desktop, sellect Make Shortcut Here from the menu.) Open the Printers folder in it's own window.

2. Go to the place where you get all of these pics in My Computer.

3. Select Details view.

4. Press and hold CTRL as you select all of the ones you want. (If you're using 98 in Web Mode, hover the mouse for a second. If Win95 or Classic, click.) CTRL will keep them all selected. Click and drag w/ctrl while not on an icn or name to define a rectangle to highlight everything in it. Once you have everything selected, Click and Drag on one selected icon and the rest will follow. Drag the Icons so the mouse is over the printer you want to print with (if it's across the network, you need to have opened Network Neighborhood before selecting the stuff) and release the mouse.

5. The print queue should have ALL of those files in it, and the files are deselected.

6. Re-select all the files and drag them to wherever printed pictures go.

(HINT: If you want more selected than deselected, go to EDIT, SELECT ALL. Then, CTRL+clicks will turn off [ctrl-clicks are toggle, not just on]the ones you don't want. No fancy software, and you get wat you want!
