    Default 8 x 8

    I did like a 90+ page scrapbook for my twins' 18th birthday. The whole thing is a scrapbook in Scrapbook Max, but I admit to using my Fotofusion program to make a lot of the pages (the collage format, ease of borders, etc.) which I then saved as .jpg and brought into SM. Sometimes using it slightly smaller making a colored border around the original, sometimes sizing it to the whole 12 x 12 size format. I did this to make a cd format of it.
    However, I decided to print some of it to an 8 x 8 album. Picasa will resize it to print it out on an 8 1/2 by 11. (I always have tons of glossy photo paper from Sam's or Costco on hand, even paper scrapping I print out titles, etc.) However, I did find sometimes Picasa didn't print it out exactly 8 x 8. If you have any program that has an 8 x 8 format, you should easily be able to print out your 12 x 12's on your regular printer. I think I used Corel Paint Shop Pro X that I bought recently because of a great rebate even though I don't know how to use it to make pages, I can get the hang of pictures and printing easily.
    I had also sent for samples from SBTOSHARE and intend to use their service one day soon. Currently working on a scrapbook of my first child who passed away at the age of 2. Maybe for that one.

    Default Hello Ellen

    I too am preparing to do a scrapbook for my firstborn, who passed away at age 6. He's been gone 26 years now and I have only old pics that have discolored over the years. I had many items lost when we had a flood in the house. Please keep us informed as you create your book. I will be looking for ideas.

    BTW, I've been printing on 11x 8 1/2 size and love it!

    Default Album

    Hi Onie,
    Sorry we belong to the same club of having lost children. Sorry also to hear you've lost pictures to a flood and fading. Have you tried any color/picture restoration software? I'd be absolutely devastated to lose any pictures of my Sarah or any of them really! I scanned A LOT of pictures from Alyssa and Matthew's years before I went digital which was most of them, but this round I concentrated on pictures with them in them rather than other pictures even if they were from the same time. I put them in a My Pictures file titled by their name/ then the years. I've already backed them up to cd once. Will again soon as I scan in Sarah's pictures. My other hobby is genealogy so have also scanned as many older pictures as I have and intend to also do something with them. The scrapping should never end. I will print something out on letter size it's just that I am used to the 12 x 12 format.

    Default Great Online Printing

    I found a place online to print: www.pureprintdesigns.com
    I've tried many others and like them the best. Their quality is super great. My pictures looks just like they do on the screen. They are super fast and only charge $2.25 per page.

    Default Costco

    I have been printing my 12 x 12 pages at Costco. They are 2.99 a sheet which I think is still cheaper than all the embellishments and printing of photos I used to do. They turn out really nice! But then lies my question I have posted . . . what is the best album to put them in? My Creative Memory like ones are not working to well!

    I print my 8x8 on a4 semi gloss photo paper and it comes out very good quality. if you are printing 12 x 12 you will need a3 paper and a printer that takes it

    if you print it in 8x8 with the scrapbook max format that will print onto a4 paper. then you can trim it easily to fit into an 8x8 album. i am halfway thru doing one of my wedding at the moment and its all turning out fantastically well. to print 12 x 12 i have been told by hewlett packard you MUST have an A3 printer. i havent found anywhere in oz that makes 12x12 photo paper so hp suggested i use a3 and cut it down (too much mucking around) so for now i am staying with the 8x8.
