Annie, I love that kitty! Nice work on both your images.

Trish, you did a great job. The colors are awesome and I like that you framed each one. You cracked me up with your reference to Earth Girls Are Easy.

In terms of the alignment issues you had, Trish, since Carole’s tutorial was for four images, you would have to add more guides to accommodate all six of yours. It’s important that you use the same original to produce of your color pics so they are all the same size. I don’t always have luck resizing them once they’re on the same image.

This is an alternate way to do it. Once you determine the size of your original, use Shift D to duplicate it as a new image. Then do your magic. Go back to the original and repeat Shift D and then magic. Repeat until you have all your images. Once you have all of your images done, create a new image the width and length that will work for your project. In your case, you would want to double the width and triple the length of the original pic. What I would do now is copy and past all of your images onto the new blank image. Move them to roughly the position you want. Now comes the aligning. 1) Using the Pick Tool, select the top left image and change both position X and Y to zero. That lines it up exactly to the top and left edges. 2) Now, using the Pick Tool, select the other images on the left. With all three selected choose Objects: Distribute: Space Evenly Vert. 3) With those same images selected choose Objects: Align: Left. 4) Now select the top left image and the top right image and choose Objects: Distribute: Space Evenly Horiz. 5) Then choose Objects: Align: Top. 6) Now select the top right image, then the other images on the right. Choose Objects: Distribute: Space Evenly Vert. 7) Choose Objects: Align: Right. I put together some screen shots that I hope will illustrate what I did since it sounds pretty confusing when reading the steps. Once you’ve done it a few times, you’ll be more comfortable with this method.

Carole, I think this is my first attempt at a tutorial so please look it over and see if I made any mistakes. Thanks so much.

EDIT: I deleted the small pic and added the pics for the individual steps. I hope they’re more visible.
