Whimsy Stamps Tutorial - Merging digital images

Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps Merging Tutorial!

Today I'm sharing with you some tutorials on how to merge images using some Whimsy Stamps digital images. There are a lot of possibilities for creating scenes and putting together sentiments and images. I've created three tutorials on how to merge images on three different programs: Microsoft Publisher, Word 2003 and Word 2007 all using a Windows operating system. The steps should still be similar if you're using a Mac.  My favorite program to merge images by far is Microsoft Publisher because you simply have to open the images and drag them around - no need to format the pictures.

To play/pause, just click on the tutorial screen. To enlarge the tutorial screens to Full Screen views, just click on the bottom right hand corner of the tutorial window on the box containing for arrows expanding outwards. To exit from Full Screen mode, hit the "Esc" key located at the corner left hand of your keyboard.
