Persnickety Prints Guest Post | Adding the 4x6 Overlay To A Photo For Printing

Cheri from Persnickety Prints sent me an email the other day and asked if she could put together a post about how to add the December Daily™ 4x6 overlays to your photos before uploading for printing.

I thought that was a fabulous idea!

Here's their suggestions for working with the overlays (you can view this same post on their blog):

1) Open the image in your software program (such as Photoshop Elements).

2) Resize the image first to 4x6 at 300 dpi (1800x1200 pixels).

3) Ali has created her December Daily™ 4x6 overlays to perfectly drop on top of your pre-sized 4x6 photo. No adjustments needed! TO MOVE THE OVERLAY ONTO THE PHOTO use the black arrow move tool in Photoshop Elements/Photoshop to move the PNG file onto the 4x6 photo. I have a tutorial for adding elements to photos here.

4) Flatten. Save as full resolution .jpeg. Upload and order.

Your borders will be cut off if they are placed too close to the edge of the image.

This bleed explanation pertains to all photographic printing.


Designer Digitals Quarterly Sale continues this week with all products 30% off. Here's two more new products from me that became available last Saturday:

First up is a set of 4x6 layered templates for easily adding and printing more than one photo on a 4x6 canvas.

And a set of Happy Christmas 12x12 text overlays. These come as black PNG files, can be easily recolored and are great for printing on transparencies.

    Everything published was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? what if you were to create a killer headline?
    I ain't saying your content isn't solid.,
    however what if you added a title that makes people want more?

    Much like the call to action on a squeeze page when you are
    promoting something in your email clarify with the email recipient what it is you are promoting.
    Where successful marketers have a solid system that is automated
    and is proven to bring in recurring income
    for them, mediocre marketers on the other hand, either don't have a system in place or
    they ARE the system. The next part is to
    get your auto responder code and insert it into your web page through your HTML editor.

    found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for
    me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    They might be the yelling fans or the silent admirers, but in adopting that fashion trends, they feel
    to have belong to the same group. I also enjoy playing with
    the Chanel - Lovely Game. Perhaps these old machines were not so functional but certainly
    poetry in motion, even at a stand still.
