    If you want a photoshop action to layer the files let me know, useful if you need to bring in alot of layers.

    If you are interested you can look at mine...

    How did you do it? Maybe you could your workflow so that the rest of all who are keen to learn can benefit from it?

    Default Let me try...

    PentiumPC's collage is really nice.

    My short workflow is this. Please feel free to add and delete for all to learn. Like I said, this was my first successful attempt:

    1) Prepare all photos (size, sharpen, overall look)

    2) Create new canvas (basically white background)

    3) open all prepared photos from (1) in photoshop

    4) use Move tool (the icon on the top next to the marquee tool) to add the prepared photo to the new canvas. simply click the photo and drag onto the 'canvas' (2)

    5) adjust location of the photo on the canvas; resize and adjust as required. the photos now appear as separate layers in the 'canvas'

    6) repeat step 4 and 5 for all the prepared photos, until all required photos are 'on' the canvas.

    6.5) remember you can adjust opacity for all layers so if you want some photos to appear translucent, just play with the opacity %tage.

    7) add text layer/s for all the necessry words...

    8) happy? then flatten image and save work.

    9) voila... if first time do this, then like me jump up and down... almost jump upside down but cannot because too fat.

    cheers

    Fat is not a crime, I also cannot jump too far.

    How about panorama shots.. anybody knows how to stitch 4 pictures together? Tried until I gave up...

    Thanks for the compliment.

    You can use PS action to automate step 4-5, will save alot of time if you have many layers.

    Basically I put all my file into a folder and run the action on it, then work on the layers...

    Cheers,
