Help Needed: Printing Newspaper Articles that Look Like Newspaper Articles

I'd like to make a "scrapbook" of newspaper clippings I've found that relate to my family. I'd like the clippings to LOOK like I clipped them out of the paper, but they always print out huge. Any suggestions?

  1. When the image opens, use a web clipper to save it. I use Snagit, but there are other free ones, which can then manipulate the image. You should then be able to make them the size you want.

  4. How is it going? I just use the print screen command from my keyboard. Then I paste it into the editing program that I use (Photoshop Elements). Once in Photoshop Elements, play with the blending layers or the filters to see if you can create the aged newspaper look.

    1. I REALLY need to get Photoshop Elements & learn how to use it. Maybe this fall! But, your steps should help using a different program.
