For our winter issue, I created a layout called “Winter Wardrobe”. I took photos of some of my favourite baby clothes– cords and sweaters, pink boots, etc, and cropped them into squares so that I could punch them out with a square punch once printed. Rather than add titles to these photos with letter stickers or rub-ons, I added text directly to the photos in Picasa.
Picasa is an amazing photo-editing program that is free to download. I have been using it for years, and I probably use it more than Photoshop Elements because of how quick and easy it is. The newest version allows you to add text directly to your photo, and it couldn’t be easier.
