Make your own photo announcements/invitations! Take a good picture of the graduate with a plain background and your subject off to the side. Then use photo editing software (like PhotoShop Elements) and type in all the invitation wording to the side on the plain part of the picture.

On my son's invitation, the background was given a "whitewash" to make the words stand out. We also found a school crest, lifted it off the Internet, and put it on the invitation. Then we just had them printed by a photo developer. They turned out really nicely and didn't cost more than just the cost of printing.

When making graduation announcements, after taking the picture with a digital camera, do you take the camera to a photo place to have a lot of pictures made or do you print a picture first and take that to the photo place?

If possible, look at the pictures at home first on your computer. Then erase the ones you don't want and take your memory card to the photo store. You can print the picture you want off the memory card. Alternately, you can save the picture you want on a floppy disc. If you save at a high resolution (and you should), you'll be able to get only one picture on the disc.

If you can't look at the pictures on your home computer, yes, take the memory card to the photo store and look at the pictures on their computer and select the one you want.

Good luck! This way can be a lot cheaper than professional portraits.

Yes I realize I have to delete the pictures I don't want to make a copy of. Thank you.

I've sent them pictures via the web and they were waiting for me at the store to pick them up. You can pay online or pay when you get there. VERY convenient!
