Publication Tips for Scrapbookers

Learn to scan & stitch your layouts expertly

I have people ask me occasionly which software program I use for scanning my layouts. I have the Epson Perfection 3170 Photo scanner which I so love ( and bought it refurbished from, and I use HP Image Zone Plus' Panorama Maker to stitch my layouts.

If I am scanning a 12 x 12 layout, I scan in the four corners. The nice thing about the scanner that I use is that there is a line that I use to line my layout against right under where the lid lifts up. I then use PSE to straighten the layouts using the straighten tool if necessary. I rotate each part and then stitch two halves. Then I rotate the halves and stitch.

Jlynne posted a well-written tutorial on stitching on her blog. Click here to see her step-by-step instructions.

Here is a post on 2peas about scanning and stitching with tips from Janna Wilson.

Good luck!!!!
