Its my good friends daughters naming day on Sunday and she has asked for no gifts but instead a memory for a time capsual.

I have 4 photos of the babies which I would like to put together in some kind of A4 collage with a poem about friendshgip and a few butterflys or something nice and girly around.

I thought I could do it but I cant, I have no idea what I am doing. I dont know what program to use its been 2 hours of me sitting here and I have nothing.

Can someone please help me :-(

Try using publisher. Just a blank page
If you put the 4 photos on (file, insert, insert photo), when you click each photo individually you should be able to resize it with the edge arrows, if you want to rotate it a little use the circle icon at the top of the  picture.
The add the text (file,insert,insert text), either type it or copy and paste. It will have a little tab thing above it where you can adjust font & size. You also make the text box larger just like the photo, click & drag.
If you want the photo behind and the text infront, right click the text  and select bring to front, alternatively you can click photo and click send to back.
You can also join photos by pressing shift, clicking them all, then right click, I think the option is join or group.
If at any point you screw up just use the undo, or redo under, file-edit.
I'm doing this from memory as I feed DS2, so forgive any errors.
That would be the basic way to do it- or you can fancy with an adobe photoshop.

Good Luck!!


Oh and worst comes to worst- print each out and do the old cut and paste.

ETA- if you want to add butterflies that you don't have do a google search under images and then right click and save the ones you like, so you can insert them just like your other photos.
