"The grid" posts

  • a tutorial for making a photo grid was the first "monthly special" back in 2008. It shows you step by step how to make a grid of 9 photos. If I were to go back in time, I probably would have done my 2010 post about creating templates instead:

  • design your own wedding templates works for any type of photo collage, grids included. It is especially handy if you plan to re-use the same layout for multiple projects.
  • a one-photo grid cheat made more sense to me when I wrote it than it does now. I don't know what I was thinking then, but I'm pretty sure the templates tutorial would have solved it. Hats off to you if you understand what I was talking about.
  • the dots tutorial is probably better than the original grid tutorial and uses basic masking principles to make a "grid" of dots.
  • also, a dots grid project, I showed how to make a pretty darn cute (if I do say so myself) Christmas card.
