ONE: Click on the “Overlay” option
TWO: At the top, click “Your Own,” which will allow you to search for and select a file (the same way to load an attachment to an e-mail). Unfortunately, you have to repeat this step for every picture you want to add. Holding CTRL and selecting multiple files is not an option.
THREE: Select the picture you want and size the picture so it fits within the black border.
*NOTE: On the polaroid style pictures, make sure the inner black line is covered by the picture when you resize, so it doesn’t show when it’s printed out.
FOUR: If you share a lot of “full size” (not square) photos, that have a white border on the sides, I drag the white border all the way to the edges and then move the picture as far down as possible without the black inner border showing (I SO hope that makes sense).
FIVE: Check your settings in PicMonkey before saving and make sure you are set to the highest resolution (“King Kong”). The files are big, but it will ensure that your pictures print at the highest quality possible.
SIX: Save your pictures and print at home, or upload to your preferred photo lab site and print. REMEMBER: Print to 8×10, or 4×6 for the last template.
Plant yourself in front of the TV with a cup of coffee and cut ‘em all out. Just as a price comparison: most sites charge between $0.55 – $0.88 per photo. To print one of these 8×10 templates at Costco (4-6 pictures), is $1.49 and a 4×6 is $0.13. And, printing at home basically costs nothing.
I swear this has been the most time-consuming post I’ve ever written, so if you’re left totally confused on something, leave a comment and I’ll try to answer! Happy IG’ing!!
I’ll be over at Whipperberry later this month showing you one of my favorite ways to display all of these Instagram photos!
