You don’t have to be Shakespeare to write a great love letter, you just
need to know how you feel. Write simply, honestly and in your own
words. And don’t worry about how much or how little you have to say— you can
use our poems and quotes to fill any spaces.
7 words
Start with a simple heading and date of the occasion. Then use a greeting you
feel comfortable with — Dear, Dearest, Darling etc.
Say why you are writing for example
This photo is in
our wedding
category. You can
change any photo to
one of your own or
another one from our
’ I wanted to make this anniversary really I thought I’d write you a
love letter.’
You will find some opening lines in the ‘poem picker’ on the site. Find one you
like and insert it, edit it or write your own.
Alternatively start with a romantic quote, or line from a poem or song.

Photo Uploading. The uploading feature on the website requires little instruction, but to get the most out of your photos follow these tips;
16 words
Try using a touching or
humorous p.s. here, for
example ’Did I say I love you?’ ’You’ve
got a great bum!’ or even
’Will you marry me?
For best quality we recommend photos are least 1240x1240 pixels. You can
check this by right click — properties —details.
If you have many very large photos and a slow internet connection you will find
uploading quicker if you resize them in a photo editing program (e.g. MS Picture
Manager) down to a size closer to 1240 pixels. We can advise how to do this if
you need help.
Photo files should either be jpg, tiff or png (right click—properties to check).
Photos should be the right way up before you upload. You can turn a photo
round in Windows using right click – rotate.
Put your photos in one folder before you start (your desktop is a handy place)
