As I've looked back at some of the pages I have been working on in the last few months I have noticed that all I scrap are 4x6 photos. I don't think that this is a problem necessarily, but I would like to spice it up a little. I am REALLY loving the 4x4 and more photo strip styles lately. I am really just note sure how to print these at home. At the moment I only have 4x6 photo paper and not a clue of what to use to print those fun 4x4 pictures. Any helpful tips?

I use PSE and crop any if need be. I have been grabbing some from DD facebook that are instagram so they print out 4x4. I just hook up my photo printer to the computer and choose the pics I want. When I hit print I get a little box that pops up and I just unclick the fit to page box and the 4X4 prints on the 4X6 paper. I then just trim it down to 4X4.
ETA: I am not sure if you could print a photo strip on a 4X6 photo page. I guess you could put 4 2X3 pics on there and just trim them down. Download photosheet if you don't have PSE and you could probably do a fake photo strip using one of the collage programs in there.
Does that make sense?

I print all different sizes on 4x6 paper and just cut them to size...

@Naby - Yes! I think that does make sense. I know the dimensions will work on 4x6, just wasn't sure how to print them without cropping the picture I guess. If I print an instagram picture from Facebook than they are already formatted in 4x4?

Instagram is 4x4 yep, so should have no problem there, should just be able to download and print from what I understand. Haven't printed any instagram pics myself yet, so just going on what I've heard.
I use photoshop to crop and resize the pictures. Always make a duplicate and use that though if you're going to do that. Then I create a blank canvas and place whatever pics I want to print onto that canvas in the program, so it doesn't waste any photo paper when I print it. Course there have been times when I have just printed one pic, but I try not to, too much.

I use Photoshop but if you don't care about a white border on your picts sometimes you can just crop down the picture from 6" to 4". I do that a lot with mine since I don't want to bother resizing and the 4x6 is sitting in front of me. You would be surprised and how easy it is to trim them down.

Yes, I just trim my 4x6's to 4x4's, too. For other sizes, such as 3x4, I use PhotoSheet along with Cropper, both from Photility.com

Photosheet download link is on left side of page
You can print them at home, or anyhwere you can print a 4x6.
