Make Picasa Photo Collage Image and Web Picture Collage

Collage your photo memories with Picasa 3

Picasa 3 is the free photo editing software as well as photo collage maker from Google that let you enhance your pictures and get more from photos. I mainly use it to organize all photos on my computer, edit photos and easily share on Picasa web album with friends. Now Picasa 3.6 has more powerful features, including name tags, collaborative albums, geotag, etc. At this article, I will introduce how to make Picasa photo collage and share on Flickr.

To use Picasa 3, download here and install. On the first run, you will be asked whether scan the whole computer or not. It will cost lots of time if you have loads of photos. So scan it later when you have spare time. Now let us see how to make collage using Picasa 3.

Now, let me show you how to make collage images with the Picture Collage under Create menu. First import photos through File/ Import From and then finish by clicking Import All or Import Selected. Afterward, select your desired photos and click through Create/Picture Collage. A Collage tab will open. On the left hand side Settings tab, you could select the collage type and other settings like borders, background color, page format, etc. I think these two tools are most useful:

Scramble Collage: change the collage layout
Shuffle Pictures: keep the layout but shuffle pictures

Tips: click Desktop Background to set the picasa collage as system wallpaper; if you are not satisfied with a photo in collage, click View and Edit to make some change to select photo.
When the picasa collage is perfect, click Create Collage and the collage image will be saved to default folder, usually \My Documents\My Pictures\Picasa\. Find your picasa collages there.
