Collage Images/Documents Tutorial
Before Collage
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,
select
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.
Click
OK
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.

) where you want to
upload the photo, click on the

When the explorer window closes, click “
Ok
to be brought back to the Upload window.
The arrow is pointing to where you should look
to make sure the right photo is being uploaded.
If the wrong photo is uploaded you will have to
cancel the upload sequence and start over. Also,
if you want to upload multiple files just click the “
Add Files
” button again and repeat the
process until all your photos are ready to be uploaded.
When everything is all set to go, click on the “

Approve your photo
Finally, you need to approve the photo so Collage
can start displaying it on web pages. Next to all of
the documents you uploaded, there should be an
icon and the number 1 under the

column.
To make collage accept your photo, click the icon,
and then click “OK” in the window that pops up.
Congratulations, your photo has been successfully uploaded into collage!
