using an app like Graphic Converter or Pixelmator or even Fotoshop you can make a blank image the size you want and then copy and paste the other images onto that one single image. You can change sizes and crop to make them fit properly.

You will need to pick an app to use first. There may be an easier way as well but I don't offhand know of any. I can help you with GC or Pixelmator but I know nothing of Photochop

Must go work for 12 hours now

I believe all that is needed is to resize, cut and paste.

Something that PS Elements would do but I don't really keep-up on that version ... I use the flagship version.

Once again .... eBay or do a search.
I don't know what's out there for Mac Intel.

Darn simple' I'd also check out Graphic Converter first.

Good Luck, h

PS: Go to limewire.com .... join, then find a copy you can use!

I have used graphic converter in the past. I don't have PShop any longer and never really used/needed that much.

Cropping and minor touching up are the extent of graphic skills.

Thumbs up Thanks,

I won't be getting to it for a while. But I will refer back to this thread when I do.

Default A photo collage

This summer/fall I painted, put decent lights in my computer room and I had to take all my photos down and am getting them back up.

What I was originally looking for would be something to create a "photo collage". After searching recently I see find two apps... my first quick demo tests mostly worked. Home personal use only.

There is a way by holding option + shift and another key/s. An app sounds easier.

ShapeCollage and Collageit for Mac

Does anyone know about these or use others? I'll need to buy it to get the watermark off and have total size and functions.

Thanks for any thoughts.
