Create great collages without being a graphic designer

April 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

 

My clients love the collages I make for them. It is a great way to showcase their photos. The mom, below, selected one of the collages I created for her to use on a custom-designed purse. 

 

People ask how I create my collages. While I do have some templates I use in Photoshop, the majority of my collages are created in Google’s Picasa. It’s a free photo-editing program that can be downloaded from the internet and it is simple to use.

 

I edit my photos in Lightroom and export the ones I want to use in the collage. I import them into Picasa, select the photos I want to use and click the Collage button in the photo tray. Once on the collage screen, I go to Settings where I can change the type of collage I want to create from a picture pile to different types of mosaics. I can also change the size and color of the grid between photos and the size of my image canvas. 

 

Picasa is free and easy to use to create artistic collages. Beth's Favs10
