Crafting: To make a big poster yourself

The framed picture I made yesterday was made like this:
  • big frame
  • a pretty wallpaper
  • printer paper (I used matte photo paper)
  • scissors
  • glue/scotch
  • a lovely picture (pretty you perhaps?) in high resolution
 Photoshop your picture in a style you like (I wanted mine to look a bit like a cartoon and very smooth = surface blur, contrast and down on saturation).
Go to and upload your picture. No registration, just upload an image from your computer and choose how many sheets wide you would like your poster to be once printed.
You can make it HUGE!
Once you're happy with your selection, you can download the PDF file (or print it) containing your newly created images and print each one massively blown up, resulting in a huge pixel poster to stick on your wall.
  I made mine 2 A4 portrait wide.
I can make it as big as I want:
I printed my image on matte photo paper, cut out the images of us and glued it together to one big piece.
Put a piece of wallpaper in the frame, then the cut out picture of us and that's it really.

Make a big collage if you want - add text on stripes, glitter, hearts - go wild!
