How to arrange an A3 sheet with passport size photos with cutting marks

Steps:
Create a Coreldraw (X8 will be used here) .cdr document with the correct dimensions. Here, I’ll be using 18.9×12.4 inches.

Use the contour tool to insert an inner contour of 2mm
Contour>2mm
Object>Break contour group apart (Ctrl-K)
In Color palette, right click on X for inner rectangle to have no color border
Click on imported pic, Obj>Powerclip>Place inside frame, click on inner frame
Object Powerclip>Edit powerclip
Resize and arrange photo so it the cropped image would fit as necessary
Make a straight line of 6mm, Copy and paste a copy at the same place
Rotate the copy by 90 degree, so that it creates a cross hair.
Group the photo frame back
Make a copy the crosshairs, select them along with the photo frame.
Click on B,R;
Repeat with a copy of crosshairs, select with the photoframe, B, L;
Repeat with a copy of crosshairs, select with the photoframe,T, L
