The two photos on the sides seem too stretched. I don't know if you can make them not look as distorted and keep the middle as is or now. I haven't messed with blending yet.

Adorable girls!

Im not quite sure how to keep it from looking so streched without making the pics smaller i'll have to play around with it a bit more.

Thanks thats just my baby with her birth 1 year and now 2 year old pics.

The blending looks great, but I agree, the two outside pics are not sized proportionately. I think there are tips on that in the FAQ sticky! Nice job!

Okay, what you need to do is crop your photos proportionately instead of trying to resize them proportionately. What program are you using? I'd be happy to help you with this.

Yes, that looks much better. It looks like you got the cropping proportionately figured out. You just need to type in the pixel size up at the top to get an exact crop.

1. Let's see if you are looking for more tips I would make your siggy a tad bit wider and slide your picture on the left over a little more to the left and your picture on the right a little over more on the right so that the middle picture shows through a little more.

2. Check out the FAQs sticky and look for the lesson on photo enhancing. If you brightened your photos up that would really make your siggy pop. It isn't bad, but a little photo enhancing really does magic.

3. Try making your text a little bigger. It's kind of hard to read with it that size.

I think you are off to being a great siggy maker! Please stick around and ask questions as you need to.

Teresa
