Hey everyone! Susan here (again) today... :)
Wanted to share a little bit extra about one of my layouts in the August Summer Camp gallery: "The first few days"...
As mentioned in yesterday's post, I have a ton of newborn photos of my newest son - Noah. This page showcases just a few, in a grouping that I created BEFORE I put together my layout.
To print smaller sized photos that all "fit" together on the page, I first started with a blank (white) 8x10 @ 300 dpi image in photoshop. I then opened up each image that I wanted to use, and cropped it, then copied and pasted it onto my blank 8x10 image.
If needed, I used the transform tool to adjust the size of each image slightly (holding down the shift key while you 'transform' will avoid skewing your image too much in one direction).
After adding all of my images, I had an 8x10 print made at costco. The white background that I used lended itself to the white frames around my mini-pics (I simply trimmed the images with a little extra white space around each).
I hope seeing how I easily fit so many photos onto this page helps you try something similar on a future project!
ps - The Summer Camp kit is STILL AVAILABLE... grab one while you can!
