Another in my Collage series ...
 
Here is a collage of model Natalie Beth.

I'm using a semi-automated tool to create these and then move the result into Photoshop for final touches. It has a lot of power that I'm just starting to tap into. Any comments are welcome. These were shot with a Canon G2 several years ago and unfortunately I didn't have full control of the lighting setup.

Cheers,
rfs

Just curious as to what your background photo is behind all of the smaller photos assembled on top of it? Other than that, the torn edges on the rest of them look kind'a cool.

Just a couple questions: How do you make one of the images the background, and how do you make the edges have that torn look? I am still trying to figure out all the quirks of the program... thanks hon!

Its just another similar image. I usually put the poorest image of a set behind since it will be obscured.

After you select your images and you have them displayed on the background canvas, if you right click on an image you want for the background, one of your choices will be "Set as Canvas background". Choose that.

To get the torn look, I do a Selection | Select All, then Tools | Frame | Frame Type | Image Frame and then follow the steps shown on this screen shot:

The red arrow labeled 1 shows selecting the Red frame icon with the white mouse cursor. When you click on that the dialog shown in Step 2 pops up and you choose from the dialog I'm pointing to in step 2 to choose one of the Jagged edge masks. If you choose a black mask, then the image will show through the black part of the mask. If you choose a white mask, and then select hole check box, then the image will show through the white part of the mask. In my screen shot you wouldn't want the hole checked (it would be unchecked).
Play around with the interface as there is a ton of stuff you can do.

Cheers,
rfs
