So this house started with a great image taken by the homeowner. I pulled it into photoshop and added the following:
1) Saturation & Lightened it up
2) Sharpen setting
3) Inserted 3 photos with white drop shadow (see 5 examples)
By default most websites duplicating the MLS (Realtor.com) will only show 1 photo by default. By putting up a collage, the home buyer can see within a second that it is spacious inside and they have a pool in the backyard. Sometimes I also put in the remarks "Ask your agent for the 30 additional photos."
As a buyer, which would you prefer?
Also you can do some of these features in Google's Free Picasa. The collage option however is limited to putting 4 photos that are of the same size in a tile format. Still better than nothing.
