Understanding How to Make A Collage

 Making a collage online is fairly simple to do. There are many websites available for you to use. Here’s how to make one:

2) Click on the ‘images’ tab in Google.

3) Go through the images and find one that is exactly what you want to make a collage of. Click on it, copy its URL address, and paste it into your search bar. Of course, steps 2 and 3 are suggestions for making a collage using public images. However, most of your collage ideas may come from your personal photos.

4) Now go back to the search bar and click on the ‘snapshot’ icon located next to the magnifying glass. This will enable you to take a snapshot of any selection of the page and save it onto your computer.

5) Use photo editing software such as Photoshop or Adobe Photoshop Elements to open up your collage picture and display it in full size on the screen. At this point, you can add or delete any other images you’d like to add to your collage.

6) Save your final image onto your computer in a location you can easily find it. Alternatively, go onto the website Cyberduck and download an FTP program for free.

That way, you can upload it straight to your blog or website without saving any of the changes made to the image online.

7) Now you can adjust the size of the image by zooming in or out with your mouse wheel or magnifying glass tool. The ‘crop’ tool will is extremely useful to take away any unneeded portions of the photograph.

Lastly, post your collage online. Hurray! You just made a collage! Be aware that you don’t always have to pay for software. You can also use a free online collage maker.
