  • Collage Making related Questions

    I've been doing some serious Googling, but I can't seem to come up with the right key words, so maybe someone here can tell me.

    I'm trying to make a collage. Optimally the kind where you take a bunch of photos, line them up into a grid, and they make up another image. I know I've seen tutorials on how to do that before but can't find that.

    If no one has advice on how to do that, I'd also be really interested in just learning how I can take about 80 photos and tell photoshop to line them up in one file on a grid. Basically like a igant contact sheet but with no spacing between the files. Some of the files may not be the same size so I'm not sure if theres a way to tell Photoshop to resize them.

    I am working with Photoshop CS4.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Do you mean something like these?


    they're obviously not photoshop programs but they are free to download. I can't remember which but one of them works a lot quicker than the other. I think its the Andreamosaic one.

    Hope that helps!

          This tutorial mentioned using File>Automate>Contact Sheet for making collages (then goes on to make a ball)

            This is how I'll do:
            Put all your images in a folder, make a script for the resizing part: File>automate>fit image, then it has to be batched with file>automate>batch for all the folder...
            Then you can do: scripts>load files into stack (that gives you a new document full of all your images one on each layer), make a new blank layer at the top, go to image> canvas size, set your dimensions, set a grid that suits you (make sure that snap to grid is activated), select the selection tool, deselect the auto select tick box (it's tedious). and then select each layer, then drag and drop the ones you want the way you want onto the grid (as it snaps, you don't have to be super precise or having huge magnification). Then merge layers set your final resolution by image>image size if it applies...

            I Hope I understood well your problem...

              That's really cool looking Pavel. When I get a spare minute, I'm going to sit down and watch the video and see what I can figure out with it along with 4personnen's instructions.

              Thanks to the both of you!

                Hi Everyone!

                I am wondering if anyone is up on the best way to do the kind of collage I am attaching?

                I know this kind of project can be done fairly easily in Quark Express with picture boxes and preset columns but it seems that Quark only lets you make documents up to...

                I have searched and searched for a thread about making collages that I read a year or so ago. I recall discussion about positioning the photos around the edges for best results. Sadly I cannot find it.l

                I've been on here for some time and the more I watch the more discouraged I become. Mind you that doesn't mean that I'm going to stop trying but everytime I see your pictures come out so well, and you talk about this techique or use of that tool, I think that I may never come to a place of excellence....

                "Fuzziness" From Rotating
                by Blue Leader

                My question is fairly straightforward... Maybe I'm completely crazy (which isn't out of the question) but from one of my previous Photoshop classes it seems like I remember being told that there's some way to set it so you can rotate something and the edges wont become "fuzzy"...

                How do you make that "curvy" collage template (the one with the kids' photos)? I know how to make templates using regular boxes and shapes....
