This picture isn't 12x12, but it's big. I actually printed one bigger, but I couldn't do the borders the way I wanted. Anyway, this is scanned in 600dpi from an old 3x5 film print, so it wasn't great quality to begin with, but the enlargment printed out great. (I also printed out the plaid background.)

One problem for a background is that most photos aren't square, so you'll have to do some cropping. I've done it before, but I gave the album to my granddaughter and haven't gotten around to taking pictures...but it works good. I like to soften it some so it's more of a background than the star of the show. Then maybe have a small picture somewhere in the LO...if you're using multiple pics.

I print my customized stuff at home on my wide format printer. When I get an inspiration, I don't want to have to go to a store to pick it up.~Judy
