I’ve been having fun scrapping the smaller 2” x 3” size photos lately.
You can get them developed through Unforgettable Memories BUT when you order each mini photo it comes on its own 4” x 6” photo with three other identical photos. I don’t mind scrapping the same photo 4 times once in a while ~ I’ve even used all four photos on the same layout like I did here...
But if you want to have 4 different mini photos on that 4” x 6” it’s easy to do using the free collages at Picnik.com. Breanna showed me how to do it ~ she’s eleven. You don’t even need to sign up to create them. Just go to www.picnik.com and click on the ‘start picnicking’ link in the top right hand corner of your screen.
On the next screen you will see the collage tab right above the yellow balloon. Click on it.
Below the spacing section is the ‘proportions’ section. The default is 50:50, but we want 40:60 if we’re working with 4 vertical photos or 60:40 with horizontal photos. You can’t mix up horizontal and vertical on the same 4x6 without losing some of your picture. The picture below shows you what your screen will look like with 4 vertical photos and no spacing between them.
Your collage is complete. Now you need to save it back to your computer so you can upload it to Unforgettable Memories for developing. Click on the ‘Done’ button located towards the top on the right hand side of your screen. You will be taken to the Create tab which is a really fun place to play, but today we just want to save, so click on the ‘Save & Share’ tab on the top right of your screen.
It saves as a .jpg by default so all you need to do is put in a File Name in place of ‘Picnik Collage’. Click the ‘Save Photo’ button and tell it where to save on your computer.
Now you’re ready to upload that photo of 4 images to Unforgettable Memories. An hour later you can pick up your pictures, as well as any supplies you might need to scrap them and you’re all set.
If you have any questions on this 'how to' please leave a comment.
