Can someone remind me please, how to put several images onto an A4 page to make my own photo album.I would like a video, preferably. I have opened a new file of a blank page in A4 size, then opened the four pictures which I want to transfer, but they don't seem to want to be dragged and they would be too large, in any case.
I create a blank image, size A4, resolution 300 dpi. Open each image and size them to about 9.8 cm wide in portrait mode (auto height about 14 cm) and 300 dpi. then go to each image in turn, "Select" "all""Edit" "Copy". Then on (with move tool selected)the blank image "Edit", "Paste". Then move to, say , top left corner. do the same with the other images, moving them to suit. Then flatten image. NB most important that the blank and all the images have same resolution (I use 300 dpi) I keep a copy of the blank.Hope it works in Elements 3 - I have CS5!
Well done, some progress. I will have a look, dont understand the lines.The reason for the 300 is that it is a good resolution for printing. As long as the blank and the pictures are the same you could use another one.
I am wondering if the program is 'slightly' corrupted, (?perhaps due to using Vista) as when I move a picture on the blank A4 page, to reposition it, I leave a trail, as it were - ie it looks as if there are lots of pics almost on top of each other, although the page prints OK. The other odd thing that happens is that when I minimise one of the open images, the pic disappears and changes to dotted lines around were the image was and goes in a jerky movement to the bottom of the screen, before it reappears as a thumbnail - most odd.
Yes, ams4127, I can use my Canon printer to get several pics on a page, but I want to position them myself and add varying amounts of text. Thanks for the reminder, though.
I have been doing this for some old photos that I wanted to have text descriptions on. Did 2 pics on each page landscape view (2 columns) with text underneath and some with text on the pics Then because I wanted the finished result to be a .jpg I just went to View > Fullscreen, and did a screenshot when I'd got A4 page to right zoom size for monitor.
Then pasted screenshot into PaintshopPro to crop borders to just the A4 page before saving as .jpg
