This is a great set of images! I love the close crop and especially how you have the 3 images together. May I ask how you stitched the 3 together? I have Dell Image Expert which has a stitch feature but that is for making panoramas not for what you did. I looked around my Adobe PS Elements and Paint Shop Pro, but I don't see any tool that would do this (unless I am missing something). Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Congrats on your win! #170169

Thanks for the comments everyone!

I put the three images together in Photoshop 7 but I know you can do the same thing in Photoshop elements. First create a new file from scratch with nothing in it, make it big enough to hold all three for your pictures. Next open all three of you pictures, one by one do a select all, copy and then paste them in to the new file. They will appear in the new file as individual layers so you will be able to move them around. If you need more help or have more questions e-mail me from my member page.
