I know this is more of a general PSP question than a siggie question, but you girls are so great, I thought I'd ask Is there an easy way to make something like this in PSP?

I would like to make different types of collages like this, but I don't know how to line them up. I'd also like to be able to save it as a template that I could plug pictures into later. Is there a way to do this myself, or somewhere I can download (for free or purchase) a template to do this?
Thanks!!!

That's a tough question. I know you could make something like that in PSP, but you would just have to play around with the layers to get the photos the way you want them. I'm not sure about a template though. If you made the first one, you could probably use it as a guide for future ones, just replace the pics.

Is there something to do to align the boxes?

I would assume that there aren't really boxes. I would make a blank image, color it with whatever color I wanted around the photos and then add the photos over it and align them in the way I wanted, being sure to keep the distance between the photos the same. I can't really explain it better without doing screenshots and I don't have time to do that right now. Let me know if you don't understand and I'll try to do that later this weekend.

Ok, what I do in PS, but you can do it in PSP too is use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move things. I line up the pictures exactly where I want them and then select the pick tool and then use the arrow key to move it down up etc. I count the number of times I hit the arrow key if I am doing three pics. I line the second one even with the third and then move it again with the arrow key. That way they are evenly spaced and lined up straight.

You can also use the grids in PSP to guide you. You can find those under tools. I use the grids for every project.
