    Hi,
    I have some macro shots, but will have to play around with the sizing before I join. Our printer is too old to do a
    good job, and 4" x 6" from Sam's or Walgreens might not work for macros. Will let you know!

    Thanks, louisezee! Was wondering more about the position of the flower so it turns out in the right place for an ATC.

    Oh...you are so evil to have yet another cool photography swap! I think I have some close-up flowers I didn't use from the Spring Has Sprung swap. Will you please sign me up?

    @memhill - I am a devoted Walgreen customer. My store can still do matte print, so pics come out looking great. For my previous Spring Sprung swap, I printed some at the regular 4x6 and just cut them to fit an ATC. It's interesting how an image is transformed when it has to be cropped.
