And a Photoshop tip:

Something really cool about Photoshop is the ability to instantly create picture contact sheets that you can print out for any size.  For example, when I mail out my holiday cards I also like to make wallets of them and instead of making them myself I let Photoshop do all the work for me.

Open your photo.  Go to File, Automate, Picture Package.

From there you can choose the page size, for my wallets I choose 8×10.  The layout is the size of the photos.  I choose (8)2.5×3.5.  Then you click on OK, and you get this:

Since the whole thing is 8×10, don’t forget to print 8×10 when you send it off to the printer.  Now all I have to do is cut them out.  Easy peasy.
