I love the LO's seen here and elsewhere that utilize the 2x3in pics but can't seem to get my pics at home to print that size. Is there a specific place ie. Walgreens,CVS,Rite-Aid etc...that will print them that size, or should I break down and invest in a Photoshop program? Any Photoshop progs for free that work? TIA.
As a certified Photoshop idiot, I can't figure out how to get more than one photo on a 4x6 page. So I just resize the photo to 2x3 and print just one of them. Wish I knew how to do two different photos on the same page.
Lucinda - I have Elements 6, but maybe this'll still help you...it does depend if I'm in the editor or the catalog, but when you click print then there should be a box to click that says print multiple photos or something like that. Click it, then the catalog'll come up. Click the boxes by the pics u want, then click add selected photos and then done. To get the sizes, click on custom size in the photo size drop down menu & type it in. HTH.

I use scrapbookpictures.com for my processing. They have great customer service, you have control over the editing of your pictures and they have very reasonable prices. There 'smaller' format pictures are fantastic.
Cathy Z did a tutorial at Ali E's site on how to create a multi photo grid. If you follow the directions for it, but start with a 4x6 document, 300 dpi, RGB color, white background, then you can make a template to reuse for any combo of small photos. Then you also don't need to print the photos in multiples.
To make it easier while you do it, go to View, click grid, then click snap to grid. That will size your boxes exactly.
Here's the link to Cathy Z's tutorial (there's a PDF to download in addition to a video): Template tutorial
Thanks, Jennifer, for posting that link. I'm going to try that. I have Elements but am Elements challenged, lol. I like the step by step.
A quick way to do collages is to use photoutility dot com. It's free and simple simple simple. You don't need Elements or any photo editing software. Just download the program and put in your pics. I use it a lot, but I think the Elements tutorial linked above would have more flexibility if I wanted a lot of different sizes in a collage.
But photo utility works perfectly for 2 x 3 pics or anything standard like that. I used photo utility here to get the two small pics to fit on one 4x6 (two pics, one price).
