Oh. So. Cute!! Absolutely LOVING these miniature iPhone prints. Katrina @ Pugley Pixel first posted about making these little cuties and ever since I've had a major crush on them. I couldn't wait to make my own, which is a good thing considering I've been hoarding my iPhone photos for way too long.
The original idea calls for printing with 8.5x11" photo paper. Since I had a ton of 4x6 photo paper on hand I just used that. I followed the directions but for some reason when I printed the photos they kept coming out kinda blurry and not really in focus like it looked on my iPhone. Big fat bummer! (this was my first time to ever print iPhone pics.) After much ado and fussing I figured out that since the 4x6 document needs to be set to 300 ppi for printing, the iPhone pics needed to be a different size to accommodate this issue. Confused yet? Don't worry, I'll post the complete how-to at the end of this post!
Now for a little mini print eye candy:
Cutest. thing. ever.
To make your own iPhone mini prints -
- re-size prints to 575 x 575 pixels in Photoshop
- create a new 8.5x11" OR 4x6" document set to 300 ppi
- line up the images in a grid format on the new document
- cut images with paper cutter (or by hand)
It takes a while to cut the prints out (you have to be extra careful to cut them straight) but it's soooooo worth the effort. I'm totally digging how they look in our home and our guests get a kick out of them too. Yay!
