    Hi all,
         I want to make a photo collage but I don't know how to use Picasa or any other collage makers. On this upcoming Sunday, I want to celebrate my sister's birthday.
    We have some cute and emotional photos of our good moments so I want to make a photo collage of those photos. I don't know how to make it soon and one of my friend suggested me to make it from online printing stores. I have heard that they make perfect photo collages and have good delivery system, you just have to give them your photos and they will make birthday card in which they attach unique collage and delivers to your address. I want to know what kind of photos I should add in this collage, like funny or emotional ones.
    Need some suggestions, thanks in advance !

    Have you tried your local Asda they do all that stuff, daughter uses them quite a lot.

    I got a great mug featuring our new grandson for Fathers Day, I'm in the printing trade being a graphic designer and was suitably impressed with it.

    They do party banners etc quite surprising the range they do


    ps before anybody asks no I don't work for Asda

    Don´t think they have ASDA in India BS Photo selection 506932706

    OK Rohit I will try and talk you through Picasa 3

    1) Download it to your PC - if you don´t already have it.
    2) I assume your photos are already on your PC so the next bit is easy.
    3) When you open Picasa you will see a page that looks like this and a button at the top that says IMPORT

    4) Click IMPORT and you will see this, select the Folder your images are in select the ones you want and say OPEN.  These will then drop into the space below where it says import.

    5.  Now select all of the images and EXPORT, this is at the bottom of the page.  I think this is so you don´t lose any changes you may make.

    7. Once you have done that, go to the tab that says LIBRARY and you will see your photos lined up side by side.

    8.  Now go to the top of the page and click on CREATE and choose Picture Collage

    You now end up with something like this which you can play with adding different backgrounds, rotating the images, adding extra photos etc.

    Did you recognise some of the photos on mine, I must have had a copy of your car in the snow on my laptop and just picked a few images as examples I think two belong to you. Now don´t you go doing me for copyright ROFL
