Photo help? Please?

Hello Internets,

I know that there are some of you out there who know MUCH more about photography and scrapbooking than I do.

(Suffice it to say that I know next to nothing about these topics.)

Anyway, I received an email from our agency that Lana's annual report is due in their office on December 19, and we're instructed to send 5 to 10 photos mounted on 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper.

Here's what I want to know:

Is there a website/company that would allow me to put together a collage of photos in an 8.5 x 11 size and have it printed?

I looked for this at Walgreens.com, but, they only offer this service on an 11x14 sheet, which is not what I need...(and Walgreens is pretty much the only photo printing service I have used.)

Maybe such a thing is not possible. I just thought it would look nicer than my own pathetic and useless ability to mount photos attractively...

Thanks,
LM

You can do it yourself in Powerpoint if you use that...just cut-and-paste the photos into a slide (oriented portrait, not landscape), and then print on a color printer?

But that's not glossy photo quality, of course, so also Shutterfly.com can do an 8x10 collage for you: http://www.shutterfly.com/shop/product_c10504-p2404/Collage_Posters_8x10_Collage_Posters

You should be able to send it to FedEx/Kinkos or whatever they are called these days.

When we had to send photos for our dossier, we used the color photocopier at Kinkos. They looked really good!

I do mine at home using Powerpoint. I create a slide & have my hubby print it at work using his photo quality printer.

I recently did a collage for my daughter's first day of school. I used the Kodak kiosk at my local Super Target. You can change backgrounds, add a title, etc. It printed in a 8.5x11 and cost about $5.00.

I do ours at home, with Publisher or Digital Image Pro (we get MS software really cheap!) - and then just print it on the color printer.
Alternatively, Costco will print stuff on various sized papers, I think.

This is cheesy but the way I do it is, I insert the photos onto a Word document, since that's the correct size. I make a text box, insert the photo, resize the photo, and print it off.

You can try resizing the photos and using your home or office printer with photopaper -- though probably at some sacrifice in quality. But I've occasionally used Walgreens and (as I recall), they offered a number of different sizes.
