    I made the basic book yesterday at the Bromsgrove crop. I have used scalloped circles. Just got to stick pics in before I photograph it.

    We don't know yet, 'sometime in August' is, I think, as detailed as we have.

    I am hoping MA will have another little taster for us tomorrow, now I've finished this one!

    And now you know there will be one a (week)day next week and the week following, with another squashbook taster, a triangular one, today. I must figure out how to do a diamond shaped one now

    Not really a CC TJ - no points, no pressure, no games, no parties, just mini-books. I figure with the kids home for many and holidays and all the rest that summer entails just a handful (or two) of minibook PDFs to print/download and make, print and keep, bookmark and go back to will fit the slow lazy summer pace.

    I'm hoping if everyone shares their versions in this forum and in the gallery we can all get a shot in the arm to the old mojo. Mine is out sunning itself at the moment, reading a book.....

    Sniff! I'm away next week - but with no pressure should catch up with a few when I get back.

    Having torn my hair out over the wedge shaped photos in the circular squash book, I'm not sure I'm quite ready to play again with triangles

    If you make the extra page for either book, then cut a wedge (or trace it on to card and cut a window the shape you want your photo to fit) and use that as a template it works a treat. But I have to tell you if you can manage it in PS or PSE or probably PSP (although I don't use Paintshop Pro so have NO IDEA how) and weld your photos to the scanned shape it works so much better. you can rotate the photo to get the best bit, you can fill in the odd corner with the clone tool, and you can print just the bit of the photo you need rather than a full photo.

    I have PS7 so the way I do it is different that the newer PS versions or PSE but I:

    1. Cut the wedges I need from black card
    2. scan the wedge or triangle, making the scan 100% size and usually 300 dpi
    3. Open the template in PS and use the magic wand to select the black area then create a new document with a transparent background (also 300 dpi) and paste the wedge into it.

    4. Open my photo, making sure it is 300 dpi and the size is bigger than the size of the wedge or triangle.
    5. drag it over the black wedge
    6. click Layers>group with previous

    You can then drag or Edit>transform>rotate if need be to make the boit of the photo you want appear in the right place of the shape

    7. merge down - this is reverseable, and makes the photo welded to the shape a single layer
    8. You can now drag create a new page that is the size of your photo paper. Drag the merged down layer on to the new page and create a sort of puzzle of the shapes to fit them as best you can onto the page.

    It sounds like way more work than it is Honestly once you start doing it you can set up all the wedges for the book easily by opening and resizing all your photos then drag, group, merge down, drag then STEP BACK and UNGROUP and dispose of the photo layer. Drag another photo in an do it again.

    After the first few it becomes nearly automatic and it's just stepping thru till you have a couple of pages to print then printing them all and cutting.

    Really, really - I do this for all my odd shaped page minibooks and I would never do it any other way now

    And as the pages are usually more or less the same size I have a load of these triangles and wedges in a folder and I just open them and reuse the as need be.

    and I forgot to mention you can flip or rotate the shapes so they lean the right way, because the shapes are oriented in different ways (point left/right/up/down) depending on which page so as long as you keep in mind which page you want the photo on just orient the shape that way and then merge the photo

    In answer to the question about adhesive, I just used Herma repo, except for the holder bit, where I used DST.

    I did manage to do the photos the way you suggested, MA (or my DD's variation on it!) but found it a bit too much like hard work to tackle again a couple of days later. I might make up the book and fill it when I come back from my week away. I could even fill it with photos of Ireland!

    For those wanting to use 8" squares, the smaller squares need to be a tad over 5.5" (5.67 to be more precise!) if you work it out mathematically.

    How sad am I that I would choose to apply Pythagoras's theorem to this rather than actually sort the photos out?

    I guess I do it a lot so it seems pretty quick to me - it does take time, yes, but I'm not sure it takes MORE time than marking and cutting using templates

    One minibook I did I simply printed the photos square or rectangular then lopped off the edges so they were all irregular sizes and didn't worry about the shape - I filled in with embellishments etc. so although it isn't as neat as having them shaped it still works well and yes, it was A LOT faster But you may see that later depending on whether one project makes it to me in time so I won't share it quite yet.....

    Thanks for that - it's on my list for today but I hadn't managed it quite yet. Now I don't have to worry about it
