How To Make A Collage On Facebook Timeline
In today's blog post I'm showing to you how I produce collages for my blog site and also Facebook page utilizing Blogstomp.
Blogstomp is one of my outright favorite blogging tools. Right here's what Blogstomp carries out in a nutchell:
1. Picture resizing and also optimization: BlogStomp re-sizes and also optimises high-res images for web use in secs.
2. Set processing: Produce unique flexible, multi-image layouts
3. Creates Multi Picture Layouts: Develop distinct flexible, multi-image designs (collections).
4. Watermarking: Quickly apply your watermark to all your pictures in one go.
5. Image designing: Express your brand name's character and style your picture structures.
6. Message pictures straight to Facebook.
7. Share photos on Twitter.
8. Blog site from within the app.
8. Conserve pre-set design layouts.
The only disadvantage to Blogstomp is that it isn't cost-free. For me, this was one of the very first blogging devices I ever before bought and it has conserved me a lot time that just what I invested in it has actually been 100% beneficial. For a single customer it's $49 (which you could mount & use on approximately 2 computer systems) then it's $89 for their Studio Load which can be set up and also utilized on approximately 5 computer systems. I shared 4 other pals for the workshop pack, paying only $18. Definitely the most effective quantity of cash I have actually ever before purchased my blog site and also photography organisation! However, for anyone intending to try it out before purchasing, they do have a cost-free trial variation. The trial version places the Blogstomp logo/watermark into your images yet it at the very least it offers you a suggestion of exactly how the program functions.
I mainly utilize Blogstomp for the following:.
- To Promptly and easily resize my pictures (I generally fire in RAW and so manage huge picture dimensions. Blogstomp resizes my photographs, separately or in batches, within secs). Bear in mind you can only import JPG documents.
- To produce collages (more on that particular momentarily).
- To add my watermark to my images & collections.
How You Can CREATE COLLAGES IN BLOGSTOMP
Below is a collage I developed in Blogstomp. I used my own pictures (with message superimposes done using the StudioApp) then developed the collection making use of the actions outlined below.
1. IMPORT PHOTOS
Open up the program & Import your photos using the 'Import' switch in the bottom lefthand edge.
Select the photos you wish to use in your collection they will certainly be grey when picked (you could also select a team of pictures and after that click 'Eliminate' to eliminate them from Blogstomp). Once you have actually chosen the pictures, they will turn up in the 'Sneak peek' box.
2. CHOOSE YOUR COLLECTION DESIGN
Once your photos are chosen, Blogstomp puts them in a typical collage style. You change the design of collection by selecting one from the right-hand man side. To scuff of the photographs, click the 'Mix It Up' switch. You typically aren't able to really removal each picture itself like you can in Photoshop. You can just choose among the designs from the right-hand man side (these designs or formats vary a little depending upon the variety of pictures you use, and the alignment of the picture ie. landscape/portrait) but I have not found this restricting whatsoever.
3. CHANGING THE DESIGN & DIMENSION OF YOUR COLLAGE
As soon as you enjoy with the format of your collection, currently you could play with borders, histories and also adding your watermark. These loss under 'Styles'. To change the design, either click the 'Designs' fall food selection as well as select 'Edit or produce your style' or click the Settings button at the top of the program and then choose Designs. I have conserved a number of styles (much like presets in Lightroom or Actions in Photoshop) which I have actually made.
You could quickly make brand-new design presets or modify existing ones. In the 'Styles' tab you can change every thing from border colour & width, to adding a background. This is also where you determine just what dimension you want to conserve your image in. Once you develop a design that you like, you can wait as a preset (like the ones I have actually listed below eg WhiteBorder800 which is what I utilize for my typical blog pictures ... this places a white border around my image, includes my watermark as well as resizes my image to 800px vast). Below you can additionally submit your logo design to the design as well as choose where you desire it to go. Once you enjoy with the Design, select 'OK'.
4. SELECT WHERE YOU WISH TO CONSERVE YOUR IMAGE
As soon as you are happy with the dimension and also border/background design & layout of you collection, you can still removal your logo design around in the preview screen. To conserve your image, see to it to click on the 'Setups' tab and then the 'Outcome' tab the first time you save to pick where you intend to conserve your collection. Once you set that up when, it will become the default for all of your following BlogStomp productions unless you alter it each time. Blostomp instantly saves your pictures into a Blogstomp folder, you just choose where you want that folder to go. Now I have my Blogstomp folder on my desktop.
This is likewise where you can re-name your collage or photos. I do this to enhance my SEO...re-naming your pictures helps them appear much better in google searches. There are a couple of other settings you could play with in the Output tab (like result high quality & sharpening). When you enjoy with where you are saving your collection, click OK.
5. CONSERVE (TRAMPLE) YOUR COLLECTION
Click the orange 'Stomp It!' switch to create your collage. Your collection will currently be conserved in your chosen location.
Easy peasy! I wish you found this tutorial helpful.
