I loved Ang Campbell's Year in Review templates. Picassa recently added a face recognition feature that made me want to put together a huge layout of my family. I made the template pieces 2 inches square, and added another two rows to the sides to make them fit my frame. I couldn't upload the original, so this is a photo of the finished piece (24x26") on the wall.



    This looks awesome :D
    This must have taken a long time to complete. I did a Christmas layout from those templates and I know how long it takes but the results are wonderful. Great job!
    KatieGrace, it took a while, but the Picasa thing helped a lot! I picked an equal number of photos of each of us (gotta be fair to those kids, doncha know!), and just dragged them onto each layer. Picasa already had them cropped down to just the face, so each one was really easy to choose. I don't think I would have thought of this if I didn't see all those faces lined up and sorted so nicely. I blew it up so big because I needed to fill a large wall.
    Wow!! How very, very cool :) Looks awesome and what an amazing wall hanging! So if I'm understanding correctly, you used the Year In Review templates (altered by adding two extra rows?), but Picasa had already cropped the photos to just the face? Super cool!
    Super cool Nan! I'll bet the family has a lot of fun with this one. Great idea.
