Make a Statement


I have plans for three daily photo projects from November on through next year, so after much deliberation and research, I bought a photo printer. I had looked into them back in April, but talked myself out of it. I decided on the Epson PictureMate Charm, and while I have only printed 16 photos, so far I'm a very happy camper!

Earlier in the month, the hubs and I went to Pittsburgh to see The Rubber Duck. He was created by the Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, and was there for the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts. We had no idea how many other people would be there, but we were able to snap a few good pictures of him. I knew that one 4"x6" photo wasn't going to do him justice, and since my printer was on the way, I did some research.

Using Photoshop Elements 10, I found a way to evenly divide a 4"x6" image into 4 segments. That way I could place each segment into the pocket of a divided page protector. Here are the steps in case you'd like to give it a go!


Doing it this way provides an alternative to ordering enlargements and I think it packs quite a punch!
