- First of all, when you download Picasa, it starts reading your entire Hard Drive. You don’t have to upload or import anything!
- You can create a 12×12 scrapbook page in under 60 seconds. Not kidding!
Once you learn about all of the little buttons and tools, it is easy. Anyone can do it, and it’s Free!
Here is how I QUICKLY scrapbooked our Family Vacation using Picasa:
First – I open up My Picasa, choose about 10-15 photo’s, and create a Picasa “Collage”.
Picasa automatically lays it all out for you. I used the Mosiac Collage option. You can choose your grid size, colors, even add your own background papers. I just wanted to fit as many pictures as possible, so I kept it simple.
Kenny is going to kill me when printing these layouts. The outside border is very small, of course he can do it, but I don’t want him mad at me. Plus, I really like double page layouts in my book.
I found a cute scrappy QuickPage in my stash. With Photoshop Elements, I added my one vacation”highlight” photo.
I exported my collage from Picasa. In Photoshop Elements, I placed my collage over the .png QP, made the outside border thicker, and now I have a double page spread that flows much better, and Kenny will be happy.
