How-To Video: Creating Photo Collages


Posting from the retreat.  Ken is still sitting at home in the dark. 🙂

Have a video today that I did for  Many of you wanted to know about cropping photos to smaller sizes for printing and for collages.  And I finally did it!

You can see all the information HERE on 2peas.  If you want to watch it in high quality, you can see it HERE.  The high quality should be helpful because it is hard to see.

I used Photoshop CS3 for the video.  However, all Photoshops and Photoshop Elements are similar for these things.  And if you use any other photo-editing software, the steps should be similar.  Just some basic stuff.  And I can't promise this is the easiest way to do it – just the way I do it.  :)  It isn't the best video, but it is a start.

Here is the card.  Click on it for more information…

(By the way – do you like what he drew when I asked him to sign it?  He loves drawing circles.) 

OK… off to bed.  Gotta get up early for a yummy breakfast. 🙂

  1. Jennifer, your ideas are amazing. I got up this morning (with power … trying to stay positive here) with a sick dog and just stopped on line briefly to see this so cool idea for a card. I’m thinking this would be an excellent idea to use for graduation … you really get my creative juices going and make me want to craft. Thank you for that!

  2. Hey Jennifer!

    Hope you are having fun at Cornerstone! Wish I was there. 🙂

    Just wanted to say thanks for the GREAT instructional video on doing a photo collage. It was a BIG help for me because I am a little challenged with photoshop. THANKS! 🙂

  3. Jen I adore this idea and will definitely have to try it! Last Christmas I was all last minute and did a Target photo template but this is a million times cuter. And I love that it shows growth over the year…or in my kids’ cases, how many teeth they have gained and lost, LOL. 😉 Great clear video tutorial too…thanks girl! Hope your breakfast was nummy! 🙂

  4. Oh Jenn, I’m sorry that your poor house doesn’t have power! This card is perfect! What a great way to show off all your photos yet make it crafty…may have to lift this idea! And I gotta say that I’m very happy about the “snap” function…had I’d known that before, my photo collages would have been prettier. I’m excited about using that feature!

  5. Thanks for a great tutorial! Love the Colin card, and the circles! Hope you’re having a great time and hope you have power when you return home!

  6. Love this card!!! I would love to watch the larger version but can’t get the page to load – is there a problem with your mac page? I’m going to give this a try this week!

  7. Wow, thanks for this video — you make it seem so easy that I’m getting my courage up to try it myself. Now if only I had such a cute little boy’s photos to use. I guess I’ll settle for pictures of our dogs or maybe of flowers. Hmmm. Lots of possibilities here. Thanks again!

  8. Wow, what a lovely card. My hubbie is going to instal photoshop tonight for me. So thanks for the video
    Greetings from the Netherlands

  9. Thanks so much for the video. I have CS3 but only know the basics (we’re talking b-a-s-i-c-s). Thanks so much for the card idea – I will be “lifting” this for my X-mas cards!

    One question…your card has a white background. Did you adhere your photo collage to white cardstock?

  10. i am so in love with this card.
    you are amazing.
    i am so excited to watch the video.
    and i am so sorry that you are still without power…are they letting you know when they expect to get it back up and running.
    thinking of you!

  11. Thanks, Jennifer! Your video is awesome and so inspiring! After the video, I whipped up my collage quickly and is ready to upload for prints! Such a great idea for a Xmas card!
    Thanks again!

  12. Ever so helpful…got PSE for Christmas and this was the main reason I wanted it! 🙂 Thanks for the guidance and inspiration, as always.
