JONI: I"m copying what Dria posted into this forum so it'll be preserved and not get autodeleted....

Tamil asked how I did the "Polaroid" look square pics
this is easy peazy. I used "Picassa" most of you already have it (it's free)

1. load pics into picassa
2. crop pics 1 by 1 using the "square" shape in the Picassa crop tools (just click crop - the square will be an option)
3. then 3rd tab "vignette" I added black vignette to each (Polaroids just look that way to me)
4. as you finish each pic click export and export them all to the the same file (i named the folder 2012)
5. after you finish the last photo and export it to the group file scroll down the right hand side of Picassa through all the files you can click on - go to the "exports" section and open the file you used to export all those little square pics to.
6. Highlight 6 of the pics (hold ctrl key and click 6 of the pics to highlight) then at the top of the Picassa page
a. click create.
b. click picture collage
c. in the pic collage menu: click 4x6, (also click to remove the drop shadow--you don't need that for this)
d. all the pics will drop into a 4x6 rectangle. NOW arrange them..straighten and fix them to be 2 rows, 3 across
that will give you 6: 2"x2" pics.
e. click create collage
f. note--this saves in the "collage folder" so you can find it to print it.

I did that for the 12 square pics-- printed the 2: 4x6 then cut them up.. matted them on off white cardstock cut to look like "Polaroid" .. I didn't want the whole thing to be "photo paper" because I wanted to write on it and I don't like the way "photo pens" look.

NOW go do it!
