There are so many skills to be learned from information shared on ActiveRain that someone would be a fool not to take advantage of it. Since none of us only want to take advantage of situations without taking the opportunity to pay back into the system…I’m channeling Craig Daniels and attempting a lesson in Ribbet Collages! There is no describing the pleasure I get through the entire process of photos…from the moment my eye sees it to the snapping of the photo to the editing to the publishing, I love it all and want to share some of what I’ve learned.
Keep a shortcut on your desktop to go quickly to the Ribbet photo editing website.
This will take you to the Ribbet landing page where you can start editing with or without an account.
Currently accounts are free and there are too many benefits not to take advantage of it so I'd suggest signing up.
After you’ve signed in, select “Upload Photos”.
Browse your computer, your camera, etc to select up to six photos at a time.
Once your photos have finished uploading, you may select one to begin editing.
After your photo is selected you’ll find yourself on the Edit Page with all the fabulous tools Ribbet has to offer…play with them, this site is so user friendly that you will feel like an expert in no time. When you’ve finished editing, save your work to someplace handy to retrieve it for the collages.
Go back to the Home Page and select “Make a Collage” and the Collage page will open.
Once you are on the page to build a Collage, you can select your layout to match the number of photos you want included in your collage. Go to photo basket to select where to get your photos. If I’m going to collage ones that I just edited, I simply pull up “History”.
After you’ve “dragged” your photos into the template you’ll have an opportunity to personalize the collage by changing the outline color, adjusting the size of the template or change the template all together.
When you are satisfied with your masterpiece thus far, click on “Done” because you are ready for the next step.
Now, it’s time to Edit your collage and put the finishing touches on it. You don’t have to do further editing, your collage could be saved just as it is, but if you want to watermark or frame it…this is your chance. You are almost ready to publish it.
Once you’ve finished your editing, it’s time to “save and share” your work. See? Wasn’t this easy?
My collection of the three photos above was inspired when I showed the farmhouse just outside of Dillsboro the other day. It still remains one of my favorite places.
I hope you’ll take these instructions and create on your own…email me if you have questions and please have fun!
