If I learned anything from A Charlie Brown Christmas, it's that dogs are hypercompetitive decorators. Also, that the season is woefully commercialized. This year, instead of giving commoditized, prepackaged, assembly-line gifts, create personalized presents that incorporate something that's uniquely your own: your photos. Here's how to make greeting cards, photo collages, DVD slide shows, and more--with one part creativity and five parts your own holiday photos. Let's start with a greeting card that you can design in a photo editor and publish with your own printer.
