Need Some Collage Help?
However, if you are a bit hesitant because of the requirement of a collage I hope that this post will help.
I made up the two collages above using the same photos but used two different photo applications…Google Slides (slides.google.com) and Ribbet. Both are free although if you want to get really creative, Ribbet has a Premium version.
Craig Daniels is the expert on this and has inspired me to try working with it. And, it’s really easy. I won’t begin to do an illustrated tutorial as Craig would do however I followed this step-by-step guide and it took me less than 15 minutes. (I added the border using Ribbet. )
You can spend more time if you want to play around with the tools but you don’t have to.
This is the same Google collage as above but I edited it so that the clipart is in a grid-like format. All you do is click on the photo and rotate and/or move it where you want it.
Add photos or clip art you have on your hard drive or download them from a site. (just make sure you aren’t violating copyright laws. )
You can add text by using the Insert Text drop-down option.
Open the tutorial in one window and Google Slides in another so you can “read and do.”
There are similar photo editing apps but this is the one I’m familiar with. I currently have the paid version but there’s a lot you can do with your photos with the free version.
Just open the app and pick Collage. You can choose a GRID or SHAPE collage. Once you do, just upload your photos or clip art and drag and drop it where you want it.
Remember…you can use more than photos or clipart in the collage.
Add TEXT or get out your SCRABBLE board and create your own text/clipart.
Ok, let’s get started!!! If you try these and need help contact me.
