I have a sketch for a 12x12 LO that I want to do as an 8x8 LO. How do I determine what size to print the photos? On the sketch they are 3x4. I'm sure there's a mathematical way to figure it out, I'm just not good with numbers! Any suggestions?

Off the top of my head...

8x8 is 1/3 smaller than 12x12, so if the photos are 3x4, 1/3 smaller would be roughly 2x2.7

Linda's calculations translate roughly to 2 photos to a 6"x4" photo print. With the white border around them, they should be just right.

I think you meant four photos to a 6*4: two rows and two columns ))

This hurt my head... I never measure; I just wing it!

Haha! I don't usually measure either, but I don't want to print the photos and then have them not fit the LO.

It would if your printer could print right up to the edges of the sheet, but mine can't. So if I tell mine to print 2 photos to a sheet, they measure only a little bigger than Linda's calculation. I get what you mean though.
