Collage Images Tutorial
Before you even start thinking about uploading our image/photo (photo) to collage you
need to make sure it is not too large, and I don’t mean the file size. Because each layout
has a specific width, you don’t want your photo taking up all the room on the page.
So in that case, you are going to make sure your photo is never over 250 pixels wide. In
order to make sure you meet this requirement you will need to open Photoshop (or any
other program that allows photo editing). I will be using Photoshop.
Open the photo you want to
upload and, using the menu,
Image >> Image Size
You will get a window like the
one on the left. As you can see,
my image’s width is 803 pixels.
This is bad. To change my
height, I am going to highlight
the number (803) and write at
most 250 in its place.
to apply the changes,
and then save your file as either a
JPG or GIF file, if it’s not already saved as either one of them. That’s it, now we can
upload our photo into Collage.
