One of the things I love about Studio J is being able to develop photos in EXACTLY the sizes I want! I know many of you love the 6 cent deals and get 250 or 500 photos developed at once. But how many of those photos do you actually use? Is it wasteful? Is it time consuming? Is it really cost effective? Below is a photo of the variety of templates where you can pick and choose from in Studio J (and a 5 x 7 template as well) to get your photos developed:
Once you pick your PHOTO size template, you can start to UPLOAD your photos and PLUG them into the layout. It’s that easy!
- Here’s my GREATEST TIP: When you start to upload photos from your computer into Studio J, do so in SMALL batches. I like to work with 10 or less because it’s a huge time saver when you do. Once you use your photo and drag it over to the template and drop it into the photo well, a GREEN CHECK MARK appears on it so you know you’ve used it!
What I prefer about this (and Studio J is FREE to use and you don’t pay for anything until you check out) is that I ONLY upload the photos I want to use and create them in exactly the sizes I need. Many of my Kit of the Month/Montly Rewards Club members create lots of layouts with me. And those layouts offer a variety of photo sizes … so using Studio J helps you get exactly the size you want and need. AND you can ZOOM in, change it to black and white, or sepia tone on the same layout (as well as color). See this photo below (which contains (2) 5×7′s; (5) 2×2′s and more sizes of my choice):
Now you can see I’m working on another photo development layout and I have not filled in the last 3×4 photo well. I can use whatever photo I want to add to this at any time. It doesn’t matter that all my photos are NOT on the same 2 page design for a particular theme. What matters the MOST is I’m developing ONLY the photos I want as well as the SIZES I want. There will be no waste for me!
- Another tip about the Photo Wells: Yes, you can CHANGE the size of a photo well even if you chose the 4 x 6 Template. I just clicked on a 4×6 photo well and a pop up comes into play. I then adjusted the size from ONE 4×6 size .. .and created TWO 3×4 sizes … so I can add even more photos on the same template. Love that!
Now below, you’ll see another photo development layout I’m working on. Even though I started with the 4×4 templates, I changed the sizes to exactly the sizing I want: 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 … or 4 x 6 … or 3 x 5 … or 4 x 4′s. I love being able to play and enjoy the size I need to fit my already made layout photo well.
I’ll be sharing more ways to do Studio J for your digital layouts soon! This is just a start of showing you and sharing with YOU … of a great way to enjoy this process. I LOVE the photo developing process and they come out great! When you get the order shipped, you then cut the photos apart and use them to your liking!
