    were we out of gifts? Is that why some wouldn't send?

      no it just said I had the names wrong. But I double checked the spelling. I'll try again. I needed to head of to a christmas party. maybe I just did something wrong.

        OOOOh the one with the large photo looks great! You can tell you put a lot of time into them which makes them look more expensive. You can make your guests think you spent a bunch of money.

          Hi there! I haven't posted in a while because my DW kinda fell by the wayside and we are getting married in Texas now (which is fine, it is all going to work out) but I was inspired by this thread while I was working on my STD/invitation situation. What do y'all think of this.. any feedback appreciated.

          Also, I tried to figure out how to order these through mpix as a 4x8 card but it looks like it is making me select a template... any way I can just order this as a card instead of just a photo.

          And, when I saved it as a jpeg it seemed to diminish the quality of the picture and the fonts. What should I save it as to submit to mpix for the best quality??

          Thanks soo much for your help.

            Looks great. I also noticed changing it to a .jpg didn't look as good. I was going to recreate it in lumapix or photoshop and see if it looked fine. It might just be saving a picture in powerpoint.

            I havent been able to figure out how to order a 4x8 picture with Mpix.

              I just remade it in lumapix & then exported it to a .jpg. It looks just the same. The text gets darker.

              I realized that your text got more messed up than mine. When you zoom in on it does it still look bad? Sometime text will look funny, but if you zoom all the way in it looks perfect.

                yeah when i view at 100% it still looks bad... it is driving me nuts.. because it looks sooo good as a pp slide but i can't figure out how to maintain that quality to send somewhere for printing purposes.

                  How do you save it? I right click & chose "save as picture."

                  If that doesn't work, you can email me your powerpoint & i'll email you back the .jpg.
