Enhancing Digital Photos - Tutorial {Salt Lake City Temple Photo Downloads}

This is a great, simple idea for scrapbooking, blogging, home decorating... and more!

You don't need to have awesome photo editing software, however, if you do, you are ahead of the game!

I do mine in Microsoft Publisher because it is one of my favorite programs! Open your picture on a blank page. Add either a textbox or a headline to your page. Choose your font and type your message. Move your text on top of your photo. Change the color so that you are able to see all the letters through your picture!

To save, use the select tool and select your entire image (picture and text) then group them together. Right click and choose 'save as image' (or something similar depending on your program). Save your image.

The possibilities are endless!

I use it for my Project Life Books... it makes it easier to keep track of my journaling cards!

My cousin-in-law, Shillawna (from Shillawna Ruffner Photography) recently got back from a trip with her family to Salt Lake City, UT where she took some gorgeous pictures including one of the LDS Salt Lake City Temple. I used it to create this:

I have also added this photo as an alternative.

  1. Hi Katy. Your temple picture is beautiful! Is there any way I can get a digital copy of that temple? I want to print one for my home and I can't seem to find one of a view that I like. Does the original photo show more of the bottom of the temple? My email is kylimarie@hotmail.com. I would so love a copy! Thank you and have a wonderful happy day! -Kyli

    1. Kyli,
      I will send you an email today about the picture. Thanks so much for your interest! :)

    2. Hi Kyli,
      My name is Claudia. I've seen many pictures of the SLC Temple, but this one in particular has that 'something' that make it stand above the rest. I would love to get a copy of this grrrrrreat photo. I'm so sure that my young women will love to have one in between their standards poster & YW logo poster. Thank you for having such a keen eye for a beautiful photo that deserves to be in every wall. My email: clasavimo@live.com

  3. I would love to have a copy of your photo for 2013 Young Women Theme poster for my stake. My email is Heckofafamily@msn.com Thank you!!

  4. Hi! I was wondering if I could use your picture of the temple in the calendar I am making for my in-laws. My FIL has stopped his chemo treatment and has been given 3 months left and I think it would be a beautiful picture and a great reminder for all of us. Thank you if you are willing! memilyrae@gmail.com
