I didn't even bring a camera to my parents' 60th anniversary party, but fortunately my sister-in-law did, and did a great job recording the event. But when I presented my mom with the usual Easel collage of the night's festivities, she squinted her octogenerian eyes at it and complained that she couldn't see anything -- too many little pictures, not enough contrast. So it was back to the drawing board (Easel, actually) to produce this collage. I used Easel's free-form cropping to remove all the backgrounds and presented her with a high contrast poster of the many very old and dear friends who had come from all over to help celebrate. Much better, she said, and 3 years later it's still on the bulletin board.
