Side-By-Side Pictures (directions courtesy of ShrinkinSmiles)

Nov 23, 2008

I'm getting good at doing the side by side thing though... I first make sure that the pictures are the same size.     Then, I use my paint program.  I open up the after picture first.  Then I use the cropping tool, I crop the whole picture. then go into tools, click on "cut".   it's a black page then.     Then back up to "file" and open the before picture.  Before it will open, a box will pop up & ask you if you want to keep the changes to the after picture.  Click on NO, so it doesn't change your picture to that blank page.      Then, your before picture will open up.  Just grab the side of the picture and drag it out to the right.    Back to the tool bar.. click on "edit"   the list will come down & click on "Paste".   It will paste the picture over your new one, but it's movable... so move it to the right side, so the pics are side by side.   If there is extra white beside it, you can click on the side.. and move it, so it looks like only 1 picture.  Same with the bottom of the picture.      When that is all done, back to the tool bar.. click on "Edit" and then "Save as"  And name your new picture.   I use "Before_down 95_Comparison"  or something like that.
