How does everyone reduce the size of your photo to fit on a 3 x 4 space?? Do you use a template? I am new to this an any help would be great.

I would like to get more out of my pictures.

I use Photosheet. It's free to download and they have several options for fitting photos on one sheet.

On the iPhone, I use an app called "photo collage". On the computer, I use Picasa. Both free

I use Picassa. You click on 2 photos, then choose "Create Photo collage".

Choose 4x6, and voila! 2 3x4 photos all ready to be printed on one 4x6 print.

On my photo printer at home I can print two 3x4s on a page. Love that feature!

Oh ... I wish Photosheet would work on a Mac. I just went to download it and it is only for Windows!

I was getting excited about this Photosheet until I read through & saw it was Windows.

I drank the whole fairy.

I use PicFrame on iPad/iPhone. Set the ratio to 3:2, then pick the 2-across template and dump pics in. Save at the highest resolution.

I use TurboCollage on my Mac. You have to tweak it a little bit because it defaults to a picture pile and not a grid, but I love it. I'm photoshop challenged.

I just wanted to pop in really quickly and say that if anyone has Lightroom, I show how to use it to print small photo sizes in the second video in this PL lesson. It's really super easy once you have the template set up.

Picasa is another awesome option, and before I switched to Lightroom I used it!

I know others have mentioned it but I highly recommend Picasa. Create - "Photo collage" choose 2 in 4x6 format and done.

I resize all my photos in Lightroom and then print them out on a 8.5x11.

I develop my photos at CVS and they have an option (under collage) where you can choose two 3x4 photos to print next to each other on one 4x6. Then you can just slice with your trimmer. Works for me.
