    What's the best way to print these little square photos with a white border? I can't seem to get them right. I prefer to print at home, so...

    Any templates? How do you do it? image.jpeg

    What I have done is just make them the size I want and print on a 4x6 piece of photo paper :)

    I'm not sure of the size you need. But if you create or use a blocked pocket template and then cut them with a paper cutter, you might be able to come close to that?

    The only thing is, I'm not sure of your sized printer. You could print 8x8 or 8.5 x 11, and then trim the empty areas?

    What about this action? It says it can be worked for 6x6 and 8.5 x 11, too!

    @mommy2boyz I use the action that @jk703 posted for most all of my printing! I set up a 6x4 canvas in photoshop and then use the 3x3 or 2x2 action to get a square box, then just clip my picture to it. Usually I will try to cram as many photos on the 6x4 canvas to print on 6x4 photo paper so as not to waste any paper :)

    When you do your photos on the 4x6 as suggested, do a stroke outline on them. I tend to use a 15px stroke INSIDE and like a cream color that is ded9c8. That slight color will make it easy to cut out the little squares our once you have your 4x6 photo printed. hath!
