I had our photographer do it for my little sister’s locket and it came out great. The only thing I can say is that a heart shaped locket is tough to size.

I’m not graphically savvy either, so I can’t give you suggestions there. But for a holiday card, I used an Etsy vendor to make a 3×5 collage out of several photos. They came out about locket size, so I know it’s possible.

Most people use photoshop.

If you don’t have that, you could always use the photo editor that is usually build into your computer (if you have a regular PC).  Like Microsoft Photo/Picture Editor.

 

You can then reduce (edit) the size to a percentage of it’s original size.

Depending on the size of the locket you could also use index prints. I have made photo bracelets using them and it turned out fine.

I did a locket for my mom, and I resized the photo (I can’t remember if I used Photoshop or the generic program that came w/ our scanner/camera), printed it on our Epson and cut it out and inserted it into the locket myself.

In retrospect, I sort of wish I’d sent it off to somewhere like Shutterfly or what not to get printed ’cause I think those inks will last longer than my Espon print will, and there’s something nicer about a "real" photo print, but you know, if it starts looking shabby after 30 years, you can always reprint a new one!
