Make a great, inexpensive personalized gift for someone.
I used my son's graduation picture and typed things that described him, his likes and dislikes, but could use a poem, song or bible verses or a list of quotes or whatever you would like.

  • Step 1

    The first program is You Are Your Words you need to pick a photo that is portrait length as opposed to landscape. You also need to have a minimum of 400 that you can type or cut and paste from elsewhere.

    Here is the link address:

  • Step 2

    After uploading, you have the choice of 6 colors and 6 different fonts and can also make the words lighter or darker and when you are done you click the download button to save it to your computer.

  • Step 3

    Now to the second program, which is PicMonkey (although there are many other programs that will create a collage and they would work as well, I just used this one).

    Here is the link address:
    http://www.picmonkey.com/

  • Step 4

    I picked "Create A Collage" on the first page, uploaded the three photos and selected the "Ducks in A Row" for three pictures and then saved it, then printed it out as I plan on framing it and putting it on the wall.

How sad! The You Are Your Words tool is no longer available from American Heritage Dictionary's site. Does anyone have suggestions for alternatives?
