How do I shrink my pictures to fit?

The easiest way is to use our cropping software developed specifically for making Little Windows!  It is a web application, so you will access it here on our website. You will be working online without downloading any software to your computer, the only thing you'll save to your desktop is your finished, re-sized sheet of cropped images, which will be saved to your desktop so you can print it at home. The Medium 1" Square Cropper Shape is available for you to try for FREE. 

If you like how it works, we offer Croppers for all Small and Medium Mold shapes. Below are the dimensions for all croppers we offer.

You can also use Photoshop or another photo editing program if you prefer, and then use the Little Windows Photo Cropping Templates that come in the Starter Kit and Mold Sets (also available for $2 in our shop).

If you're not comfortable cropping online, or using Photoshop, click here for a How-To guide for resizing your pictures using Microsoft Word or GoogleDocs.  This will also work if you need to resize your images to fit our Large Sized Molds or Hearts Molds.  You'll then use the templates that come with your molds to trace around and cut out your shapes.
