Make A Picture Collage For Facebook
In today's post I'm sharing with you how I produce collages for my blog as well as Facebook web page utilizing Blogstomp.
Blogstomp is just one of my absolute much-loved blog writing tools. Here's just what Blogstomp performs in a nutchell:
1. Photo resizing and also optimization: BlogStomp re-sizes as well as optimises high-res photos for web use in secs.
2. Batch handling: Create one-of-a-kind flexible, multi-image formats
3. Produces Multi Picture Layouts: Create one-of-a-kind versatile, multi-image designs (collages).
4. Watermarking: Conveniently apply your watermark to all your images in one go.
5. Photo designing: Express your brand's personality as well as style your picture frames.
6. Post images directly to Facebook.
7. Share images on Twitter.
8. Blog site from within the app.
8. Conserve pre-set design themes.
The only drawback to Blogstomp is that it isn't really cost-free. For me, this was among the very first blog writing devices I ever before got and also it has actually conserved me so much time that just what I invested in it has actually been 100% worthwhile. For a single customer it's $49 (which you could install & make use of on approximately 2 computers) and afterwards it's $89 for their Studio Load which can be installed and also utilized on approximately 5 computer systems. I shared 4 other buddies for the studio pack, paying just $18. Absolutely the best quantity of money I have ever before purchased my blog site as well as photography business! Yet, for anybody wanting to try it out before purchasing, they do have a free test version. The trial version places the Blogstomp logo/watermark into your pictures yet it a minimum of it offers you an idea of exactly how the program functions.
I mainly make use of Blogstomp for the following:.
- To Rapidly as well as conveniently resize my pictures (I generally fire in RAW therefore manage substantial image sizes. Blogstomp resizes my pictures, separately or in sets, within secs). Bear in mind you can only import JPG files.
- To develop collages (a lot more on that in a moment).
- To include my watermark to my images & collages.
WAYS TO CREATE COLLECTIONS IN BLOGSTOMP
Here is a collection I developed in Blogstomp. I used my own photos (with text overlays done making use of the StudioApp) and after that produced the collage using the steps detailed below.
1. IMPORT IMAGES
Open the program & Import your photographs using the 'Import' button in the bottom lefthand edge.
Select the photos you intend to make use of in your collection they will certainly be grey when picked (you could additionally select a team of pictures then click 'Eliminate' to remove them from Blogstomp). As soon as you have selected the photos, they will show up in the 'Sneak peek' box.
2. PICK YOUR COLLECTION FORMAT
When your images are picked, Blogstomp puts them in a standard collage style. You change the style of collection by picking one from the right hand side. To riffle of the photos, click the 'Mix It Up' switch. You aren't able to really removal each image itself like you can in Photoshop. You can only pick among the designs from the right hand side (these designs or designs differ a little depending on the variety of images you use, and also the orientation of the photo ie. landscape/portrait) however I have not found this limiting in all.
3. TRANSFORMING THE STYLE & DIMENSION OF YOUR COLLAGE
When you are happy with the format of your collage, currently you can have fun with borders, histories and also including your watermark. These fall under 'Designs'. To transform the design, either click the 'Designs' fall menu and also choose 'Edit or develop your design' or click the Setups button on top of the program and afterwards select Styles. I have actually conserved a variety of styles (much like presets in Lightroom or Actions in Photoshop) which I have actually made.
You could conveniently make new design presets or modify existing ones. In the 'Styles' tab you could transform every point from boundary colour & size, to adding a background. This is additionally where you choose exactly what size you want to save your photo in. When you develop a style that you like, you could save it as a pre-programmed (like the ones I have actually listed below eg WhiteBorder800 which is exactly what I utilize for my standard blog site pictures ... this places a white boundary around my picture, includes my watermark as well as resizes my photo to 800px wide). Below you can also submit your logo to the style and pick where you want it to go. As soon as you are happy with the Design, choose 'OK'.
4. CHOOSE WHERE YOU WANT TO SAVE YOUR PICTURE
When you more than happy with the dimension as well as border/background design & layout of you collection, you could still move your logo design around in the preview display. To conserve your photo, make sure to click on the 'Setups' tab and afterwards the 'Result' tab the first time you conserve to select where you wish to conserve your collage. When you establish that up when, it will certainly become the default for all of your next BlogStomp productions unless you alter it each time. Blostomp immediately conserves your images into a Blogstomp folder, you simply select where you want that folder to go. Right now I have my Blogstomp folder on my desktop computer.
This is additionally where you could re-name your collage or pictures. I do this to boost my SEO...re-naming your images helps them turn up better in google searches. There are a couple of other setups you can play with in the Outcome tab (like result quality & honing). When you are happy with where you are conserving your collage, click OK.
5. CONSERVE (STOMP) YOUR COLLAGE
Click the orange 'Stomp It!' switch to create your collection. Your collection will certainly now be conserved in your selected location.
Easy peasy! I hope you found this tutorial beneficial.
