What size picture are you taking with your digital?

What photo program do you use?

side note: did you remember to stamp it before posting it? There are cake picture pirates out there.

I think I may know what happened.....

Which set of directions did you use to stamp? Paint or Print Shop?

It looks like, after stamping, when you exported your pic back into JPG, you didn't select just the picture and it JPG'd the whole page, causing your picture to appear smaller than it really is.

You used Paint? Hold on- let me try a couple of things to see what may have gone wrong. I may have to tweak my instructions. You did save an original copy of the picture as instructed... right?

I'm going to ask you a few questions as I go along....

After opening paint, you should have clicked file and then clicked open and then chose your picture.

OK- now think... when you opened paint and before opening your picture, there should have been a white box. Then you selected your picture. Did it totally replace the white box or was there white left around it?

I did what you said...

Then the white screen was up..
Clicked on files of type & chose JPGJ. jpeg

then my scans
then open
then clicked on the month the pics were scanned
then open
then the pic I wanted
then it came up on the screen & it was across the whole screen

I put my name on it & hit save like you said

that was that;;;;

Ok- you did good. For some reason it's saving more than you are telling it to.

Hold on.....

Are you using PAINT or the newer Paint Plus or Paint Deluxe or something like that?

try something....

When you are ready save, click edit first. Click select all. Then do your Save As.

See what happens. All that should save is your picture and the enhancements, not all that white space around it.
