My tool of choice is Pixlr Express. And lucky for me, and you, it's free and super simple!
Step 1: What You'll Need and How to Start
- An Internet connection
The program can be found by following this link (www.pixlr.com)
You'll see that there are 3 different versions of Pixlr, which you are welcome to explore as well. Pixlr editor is the advanced version and is similar to Photoshop. On the other hand, Pixlr-o-matic is the playful version, which helps you edit your photos using different filters and borders. I chose to use Pixlr Express, specifically the collage tab.
Step 2: Choosing Your Layout and Adding Pictures
Next is adding the pictures. Simply click the + button and find your picture in your files. If you want to change the picture, click the refresh button at the top right. If you want to remove the picture, click the x button at the top right.
Step 3: Editing Each Picture
Step 4: Spacing, Roundness, Proportions, and Color
Spacing increases or decreases the space between the pictures.
Roundness changes the edges of each picture, either making them square or curved.
Proportions changes the dimension of the entire image.
Color changes the color of the border and the space between the images.
Step 5: Final Touches and Saving
Once you're happy with your work, save it and include it in your instructable!
