How to: make a photo col­lage

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets -

THE trou­ble with hav­ing a smart­phone cam­era in your pocket is that you tend to take more pho­tos than you can eas­ily share. There are many ways you can com­bine your im­ages into an at­trac­tive col­lage. One way is to use the Dip­tic app (99c on both Ap­ple iOS and Google Play). Once you down­load the app, the first step is to choose your lay­out, from a clas­sic com­bi­na­tion of squares and rec­tan­gles to the un­usual shapes you will find in the ‘‘Fancy’’ cat­e­gory. You add an im­age to each part of the lay­out, se­lect­ing the pho­tos from your cam­era roll or photo stream. Then, for each of the com­po­nents of your de­sign, you can ap­ply a fil­ter, crop, scale and ro­tate. You can change the as­pect of the over­all de­sign, ad­just thewidth of your bor­ders and add a pat­tern to your frame. The op­tions are al­most end­less. Once you have the de­sign you want, you have the op­tion of sav­ing it in three res­o­lu­tions. If you’re think­ing of get­ting your art­work framed on a wall, go for large.
