One year I made an advent calendar for my parents. When they opened each day's window, they saw a photo of a family member or friend. To get the photos of people to be small, I selected a bunch of good ones and then took photos of them, from farther away. Then I cut up the prints, as needed, to make them fit.

An idea about this that I've used in the past, with better photo clarity:

KodakGallery and some other sites have "collage" options for photos. When I realized the size of the pictures I needed, I realized that if I did a 16-box 5x7 collage, it would give me the PERFECT sized pictures I needed - so I did that. And fairly inexpensively, and with a LOT less aggravation than other ways I tried!
