Photo Printing Tips

Hello everyone! Do you ever have a ton of pictures that you want to put on a page? Well, there are a lot of ways to show a large quantity of pictures- while still making room for embellishments and cute paper:)
I use Picasa 3 (a free program) for my photo organization. I will give you a quick run down on how to make photo collages that can be printed on standard sizes (like 4x6 and 5x7...)
First, select the photos that you want for the collage. They will be in the bottom left hand corner.
Then click on Create located on the top tab. Scroll to picture collage. Now you will have a variety of ways to make your collage. I like the grid and mosaic options. You can also choose grid spacing, so if you like some white space between your photos you can choose the width.
You can change page format to whatever size print you like, or even make a desktop background!
The photo strip that I used in the above layout (loving the March kit!) was actually cut in half from a 5x7 print. So have fun trying out new print formats!
