How To Make A Photo Collage For Facebook
In today's blog post I'm showing to you just how I develop collections for my blog site and Facebook page making use of Blogstomp.
Blogstomp is one of my outright favourite blog writing devices. Here's just what Blogstomp performs in a nutchell:
1. Image resizing as well as optimization: BlogStomp re-sizes as well as optimises high-res pictures for web usage in seconds.
2. Set processing: Produce one-of-a-kind adaptable, multi-image formats
3. Produces Multi Picture Layouts: Develop one-of-a-kind flexible, multi-image designs (collections).
4. Watermarking: Easily apply your watermark to all your photos in one go.
5. Picture designing: Express your brand name's personality and style your photo frameworks.
6. Blog post photos straight to Facebook.
7. Share pictures on Twitter.
8. Blog site from within the app.
8. Conserve pre-set style layouts.
The only downside to Blogstomp is that it isn't really totally free. For me, this was among the first blogging devices I ever before purchased and it has conserved me a lot time that exactly what I spent on it has been 100% beneficial. For a solitary customer it's $49 (which you could set up & use on as much as 2 computer systems) and afterwards it's $89 for their Workshop Load which can be installed and also utilized on as much as 5 computer systems. I went in with 4 various other friends for the workshop pack, paying only $18. Definitely the best quantity of cash I have ever before bought my blog site as well as digital photography company! However, for any person wishing to try it out before acquiring, they do have a totally free test version. The test version places the Blogstomp logo/watermark into your images however it at the very least it gives you an idea of how the program functions.
I generally utilize Blogstomp for the following:.
- To Promptly and quickly resize my photographs (I normally fire in RAW and so manage significant photo dimensions. Blogstomp resizes my photographs, separately or in batches, within secs). Bear in mind you can only import JPG data.
- To produce collections (much more on that in a moment).
- To include my watermark to my photos & collections.
THE BEST WAYS TO DEVELOP COLLAGES IN BLOGSTOMP
Below is a collection I produced in Blogstomp. I used my very own pictures (with text superimposes done making use of the StudioApp) then developed the collage using the steps described below.
1. IMPORT PHOTOS
Open the program & Import your photographs making use of the 'Import' switch in the bottom lefthand edge.
Select the images you wish to utilize in your collage they will be grey when picked (you could additionally pick a group of images and afterwards click 'Eliminate' to eliminate them from Blogstomp). When you have picked the photos, they will turn up in the 'Preview' box.
2. CHOOSE YOUR COLLECTION DESIGN
Once your pictures are chosen, Blogstomp puts them in a typical collection style. You transform the style of collage by picking one from the right hand side. To change the order of the photographs, click on the 'Mix It Up' button. You typically aren't able to actually move each image itself like you could in Photoshop. You could just choose one of the designs from the right hand side (these designs or formats vary slightly relying on the variety of pictures you make use of, and the alignment of the picture ie. landscape/portrait) but I have not located this restricting at all.
3. CHANGING THE DESIGN & SIZE OF YOUR COLLAGE
As soon as you are happy with the design of your collection, currently you could play with boundaries, histories and also adding your watermark. These loss under 'Designs'. To transform the design, either click the 'Styles' drop down menu and choose 'Edit or produce your style' or click the Settings switch at the top of the program then select Styles. I have actually conserved a number of styles (just like presets in Lightroom or Actions in Photoshop) which I have made.
You could conveniently make brand-new style presets or edit existing ones. In the 'Designs' tab you can transform every thing from boundary colour & width, to adding a background. This is also where you determine what size you want to save your image in. When you create a style that you like, you could save it as a pre-programmed (like the ones I have here eg WhiteBorder800 which is just what I make use of for my standard blog site images ... this places a white border around my picture, adds my watermark as well as resizes my photo to 800px wide). Here you could also post your logo to the style and select where you want it to go. When you are happy with the Style, pick 'OK'.
4. PICK WHERE YOU WANT TO SAVE YOUR IMAGE
When you enjoy with the dimension and also border/background style & format of you collection, you could still relocate your logo design around in the sneak peek display. To save your photo, ensure to click the 'Settings' tab and afterwards the 'Output' tab the very first time you conserve to choose where you intend to save your collection. Once you establish that up once, it will certainly become the default for all your following BlogStomp developments unless you change it each time. Blostomp immediately saves your pictures into a Blogstomp folder, you just select where you desire that folder to go. Now I have my Blogstomp folder on my desktop computer.
This is additionally where you can re-name your collage or pictures. I do this to enhance my SEO...re-naming your photos helps them show up much better in google searches. There are a few various other setups you can have fun with in the Output tab (like result quality & sharpening). When you are happy with where you are saving your collage, click OK.
5. SAVE (STAMP) YOUR COLLAGE
Click the orange 'Stomp It!' button to produce your collection. Your collection will currently be conserved in your picked location.
Easy peasy! I hope you located this tutorial valuable.
