Hi! OA fans, it's Mandy Koeppen sharing a simple tutorial on how I create photo collages in photoshop elements with you today.
Most of us only use a few photos at most on a layout because it can be a challenge to fit a bunch of photos on 1 page or getting them placed right can be tricky,this is where a printed collage comes in handy. Collages are a great way to use a lot of photos from one event or for all those photos that are part of our story but tend to get put to the side because they just aren't as important. You have a lot of different options when it comes to creating a collage in photoshop too... you can change the color, the sizes, and various placements of your photos.In this tutorial I am going to create a basic collage of a variety of photos from Summer 2012.
Let's get started.
I open up photoshop elements then drop all the photos I think I might use in the project bin. Once I have all the photos in the project bin I open a blank file. I chose 11x 8.5 inches for this collage.
Then I start dragging my photos onto the blank file and resize them. For this collage the photos are all 1.5x1.5 inches. I enable the Grid under the View tab so that photos are all lined up straight in rows.
*** If you don't have photoshop or photo editing software on your computer no worries you can still create a photo collage by googling photo collage maker and a number of free easy to use sites will pop up for you.
If you decide to give this technique a try, upload your projects to our OA Flickr Gallery. We would love to see you projects using collages. Thanks for visiting with us today!
