Introduction: Fun Profile Picture

Picture of Fun Profile Picture

So this came up because I wanted a fun profile pic. I decided to do this becuase I saw a collage feature for 25 pictures and was trying figure what to do with it, this is the result. I am actually doing two collages, I will be combining them to make one photo, which I will name "Fifty Shades of Dave"

I used sunglasses but the options are endless as you will see.....

Step 1: Materials

25 of anything (Sunglasses, hats, t-shirts, hairclips, lipsticks, facial expressions, etc...) You can mix it up, too. And remember you can borrow from friends.

Camera/ Cell phone with camera

A friend (optional)

Step 2: Take Pictures

Use a clean solid color background. Find a wall, which is easiest. Take 25 pictures with your items of choice. You can also have a friend take them for you. Have fun. You can choose to have the same expression 25 times or ham it up and let each item inspire the photo and expression. I chose sunglasses for my item. You can use hats, shirts, etc. You can also mix it up with your choices and do a few of each.

Step 3: Making Your Collage

Go to pixlr.com. Select Pixlr Express. Select Collage. Once the 4-up collage is on screen, select the collage setup and choose the 25-up.

You will be able to choose each individual photo, crop it, fix the tone, and/or give it an effect.

I chose to do auto fix and crop for each one.

Once done, save your collage. I chose to save it in large format.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Pic!

Have fun and feel free to comment with your awesome pics!

Haha, I'm envious of your crazy sunglasses collection!

It's mostly from thrift shops and dollar tree. =)

Nice, I wear regular glasses so I don't wear sunglasses that much but maybe I should start wearing my contacts more often so I can wear some things like these, haha

I'm sure the right pair of sunglasses will seduce you into your contacts.
