You can create these very special beautiful 3 or even 4 Generation Family Photos without a lot of work or expense in Photoshop on your computer. If you are not proficient in Photoshop, hand your photos on to someone who knows their way around a computer.

Hold the frame according to how you are shooting the photos. For example; if you take a portrait shot (vertical), make sure everyone is holding the frame like a portrait.
Ask each person holding the frame to try to keep their fingers clear of the inside of the frame. This makes editing faster.

The trickiest step is the copy and paste in Photoshop. Make sure you crop each photo to the size of the frame before copying it!
