Want to learn how to make a photo-collage for your blog? Here is a full video tutorial on how to make a collage for round-ups in Photoshop.
I’m thankful to have had some prior education in Photoshop during my early years at the University of Minnesota. I learned the bare bones of the program, which has really been an integral part of growing my blog. Out of any app or program, I’d say photoshop is the most used during my day. I use it mostly for photo editing, image creation, and photo collages.
I started creating photo collages on Fit Foodie Finds back in 2011 right when I started blogging. What’s interesting, is some of my first “viral” posts were actually long collage images that were extremely pinnable. I never connected the dots between the viralness and the composition of the image, I thought it was a combination of luck and people really liking quinoa at the time.
I’ve continued to create collage images on FFF as part of my round-up posts and have been constantly posting them around 2 times per month. It’s not only a great way to generate new content for the blog, but to link to some of your favorite bloggers and publications on the net (which search engines LOVE). Best part is- they always get a lot of shares and TONS of pins.
Photo collages may seem like they take a long time to create, but I discovered a really easy way to create yourself a template and just plop pictures into the place holder. I keep a folder on my desktop of different templates I’ve made over the years, so I don’t have to remake myself one when I want to make a collage. It’s a great way to save time and to brand your website with a consistent look and feel of a collage.
