Scrapbook Layout and Stitching Photos Together With Photoshop

Hi Everyone! I was working on a tutorial for my photo blog "Photo Inspirations" on how to stitch photos together on Photoshop. When I mean "stitch, I mean combine several photos together to create one photo. I found a basic tutorial and I created my own version of the tutorial. The tutorial I found did not have photos so I created to capture the pictures of each step of the process in my tutorial. Stop by my blog site "Photo Inspirations" for the tutorial.

As you can see above, all the photos are one piece rather than 3 separate pieces of photos. When you print the photo, it'll print as one piece. Actually, this process is the same process that you use for Panaromic Photos. The process is really easy. If you don't have Photoshop, your program probably has a Panaroramic or stitch feature. . .my tutorial is on how to do this on Photoshop.

Whenever I create scrapbook layouts, I use my printer program and print each photo individually then I'll arrange them together based on what I want my layout to look like. The problem is I found it cumbersome to cut and paste the photos together and I also wasted a lot of photo paper when I do this. Do you have that problem? Well, for the newbie scrapbookers or photographers, I'm sure you understand what I'm talking about.

Anyway, my layout with the stitched photo was printed as one piece and it was easy to lay it out on my scrapbook page.

Scrapbook Details:

Papers: Colorbok 12x12 Glamorous Girl Scrapbook Kit, SU Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Darice rhinestone

The photos are of my daughter and her friends. They are part of the Key Club and they attended the Key Club Fall Rally to benefit the Children's Hospital. I don't know the exact name of the foundation that they were raising funds for. They had a blast and it's an event that the kids love to attend every year at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
