A few weeks ago,I got 4 printed on a 11x14 poster at Walgreen. Today, I couldn't. The site wouldn't put them on the poster...just created a 11x14 poster with part of one pic. Shutterfly told me they couldn't do it either. I finally ordered some 4x12 @ Adorama. The ones I got at Walgreen printed out 2.5x11 which I like better and of course was cheaper. I am working on a travel scrapbook and I am making several pages with one 5x7 and a panorama at the bottom of the page. I really like the design and would like to do it again and take more panoramas next trip.
And the King will tell them, when you did it to one of the least of these,you were doing it to me.

If you have Photoshop Elements, you can create a canvas in whatever size you want then add the pics to it in the size you want them printed in. Save the whole thing as a jpeg and upload to anyplace that can print a photo in the size your canvas is.
For example, I wanted to do some invitations for my niece's baby shower that were 4"x8". Costco prints that size, but it was cheaper to print three of them on a 8"x12" canvas and cut them apart myself so that's what I did. Set up the page in PSE as 8"x12". Opened a new second page to create the invite that was 4"x8" and designed it. Flattened all the layers on the invite and saved it as a 4"x8" jpeg, copied it, pasted it three times onto the larger canvas. Then I saved the whole thing again as a jpeg and uploaded that to Costco. They turned out perfect. The last time I checked, Costco charges $2.99 for a 12x12 photo so you could do six 2"x12" panoramas, four 3"x12" panoramas or three 4"x12" ones or whatever combination you like that fits on the page and just cut them apart. It's a little more work but that way you get exactly what you want and can get them printed anywhere you like.
