It would be great to have something like the etsy poster sketch where you could just insert your pics, they all just fit in the placeholders and be able to move them around at will and then save the finished result as a jpg or pdf even.

The program Jewelry Designer Manager will print a catalog - www.jewelrydesignermanager.com. Of course, you have to have all your components and pieces entered first. (Which I never had the discipline to do!)

I used to do so in Microsof Excel. I just insert my JPEG files and resize them to fit the same sell size. Easy and simple. I don't have time to learn a new software so I'll try to apply to whatever I know already.

yes, I wish there was something like the poster sketch.

I would use images from my Etsy shop, it's just that most of my jewelry is not on Etsy due to the saturation of that category here...

redpanda, thanks for that link. It seemed like a lot of hassle. I know what I want to do but I don't have the computer knowledge to do it. arggg.

Crop your photos to square. Create your line sheet using the Table tools in Word or openoffice Writer (free program Unline Word)

When your table is ready, just use the Insert Picture tool in word or writer. The pic will be full size when it is inserted, but you then just drag the corners to resize to fit the table.
