How To Make A Photo Collage On Facebook
In today's blog post I'm showing to you how I create collections for my blog as well as Facebook page using Blogstomp.
Blogstomp is one of my outright preferred blog writing tools. Here's what Blogstomp carries out in a nutchell:

For me, this was just one of the initial blog writing devices I ever before acquired and also it has conserved me a lot time that what I invested in it has been 100% rewarding. For a solitary customer it's $49 (which you can mount & use on as much as 2 computer systems) and then it's $89 for their Studio Pack which can be mounted and also utilized on as much as 5 computers. I shared 4 various other pals for the studio pack, paying just $18. Absolutely the most effective quantity of loan I have actually ever before invested in my blog as well as digital photography organisation! However, for any individual wishing to try it out prior to purchasing, they do have a free test variation. The test variation places the Blogstomp logo/watermark onto your pictures however it a minimum of it gives you a suggestion of just how the program works.

- To produce collages (a lot more on that in a moment).
- To add my watermark to my photos & collections.
How You Can PRODUCE COLLECTIONS IN BLOGSTOMP
Here is a collage I produced in Blogstomp. I utilized my very own pictures (with message superimposes done making use of the StudioApp) then created the collage making use of the actions detailed listed below.
1. IMPORT PICTURES
Open up the program & Import your photographs using the 'Import' button in the bottom lefthand edge.
Select the images you wish to make use of in your collage they will be grey when picked (you could additionally select a team of pictures and after that click 'Get rid of' to eliminate them from Blogstomp). As soon as you have actually selected the pictures, they will turn up in the 'Sneak peek' box.
2. CHOOSE YOUR COLLAGE FORMAT
When your pictures are chosen, Blogstomp places them in a standard collage style. You change the design of collection by picking one from the right hand side. To change the order of the photographs, click the 'Mix It Up' switch. You aren't able to actually move each photo itself like you can in Photoshop. You could only select one of the styles from the right hand side (these styles or designs vary slightly relying on the variety of photos you use, as well as the positioning of the image ie. landscape/portrait) yet I haven't found this limiting at all.
3. TRANSFORMING THE DESIGN & DIMENSION OF YOUR COLLECTION
As soon as you are happy with the format of your collection, currently you can have fun with borders, backgrounds and adding your watermark. These autumn under 'Designs'. To transform the style, either click the 'Styles' fall food selection and choose 'Edit or produce your style' or click the Setups button at the top of the program then select Styles. I have saved a variety of designs (much like presets in Lightroom or Actions in Photoshop) which I have made.
You can easily make new design presets or modify existing ones. In the 'Designs' tab you could alter every thing from border colour & width, to including a background. This is additionally where you determine what dimension you wish to save your picture in. As soon as you produce a style that you like, you could save it as a predetermined (like the ones I have listed here eg WhiteBorder800 which is what I make use of for my common blog images ... this puts a white boundary around my picture, adds my watermark and also resizes my picture to 800px large). Right here you could likewise post your logo design to the style and also pick where you want it to go. Once you more than happy with the Design, pick 'OK'.
4. SELECT WHERE YOU INTEND TO SAVE YOUR PHOTO
When you enjoy with the size and border/background style & design of you collection, you could still removal your logo design around in the preview display. To save your picture, make sure to click on the 'Setups' tab and after that the 'Output' tab the very first time you conserve to pick where you intend to save your collection. Once you set that up as soon as, it will certainly become the default for all of your next BlogStomp developments unless you transform it each time. Blostomp automatically saves your photos right into a Blogstomp folder, you merely choose where you want that folder to go. Right now I have my Blogstomp folder on my desktop.
This is likewise where you can re-name your collage or pictures. I do this to boost my SEO...re-naming your photos helps them show up much better in google searches. There are a few various other settings you can play with in the Output tab (like output top quality & developing). When you more than happy with where you are conserving your collage, click OK.
5. CONSERVE (STAMP) YOUR COLLAGE
Click the orange 'Stomp It!' button to create your collage. Your collage will currently be conserved in your selected location.
