I do a lot of my layouts from sketches and I see lots of them with really small pictures, like 2x2 or 1.5x2 or 1x3. I am wondering how you print them in that size? I usually print all my pics at Target and crop them down, but can rarely get them that small. Do you have to use special software or a special printer? If so, what do you use? I would love to be able to do a sketch with smaller pictures and not lose the focus of the picture. It would also be nicer to get more pictures on a page.
I use photoshop. I'm pretty sure other softwares can do the same thing... Or you can download the demo and get a few done
Basically you select the cropping tool, and you enter the size you want your selection to be. So say you select what would be 3x3 in the picture, you could just enter you want it to be 2x2 and it'll resize it. Then you change the canvas size to 4x6 so if you go to print it at target, it prints your 2x2 on a 4x6 (since they don't have a smaller size). And then I sometimes use paint to put a few of those small pics all together so I only have to pay for one 4x6 (by copy/pasting them)
also scrapbookpictures.com you can get HUGE range of sizes printed for cheap! Or you can use picasa and make collages using grid method and get smaller sizes! I am doing this to get wallets done but on 4x6 prints (snapfish has them for 1 cent each right now!)
I finally found something! I have Publisher on my work computer, so I copied all my pictures into one document in the size I wanted, then saved it as a jpeg file. Then I sent it to Target as a 8x10 and printed it out. Thanks for all the tips!!
