Hi.We'll be making something like this :)

Understand, this tutorial requires ALOT of basic placement knowledge. Know where to place images, and know where not too.

- - - - - - - - - - -

Okay. First off, take the images you want to use.

I STRONLY recommend, you use image of the same sort/category. Yadig?

Now, open up a 700-900 pixel canvas.

Now, go to file > open > and choose your image. Press CTRL + A, then CTRL + C, and exit that image you opened.

Now, paste it onto the blank vanvas you opened. Paste your image anywhere you would like, in the middle, top left, bottom right, ect. (Make sure your image is 1/8 the size of your canvas)

Now, get some sort gruny brushed shape, and use the eraser tool. Depending on where you placed your image, start erasing around the edges of the image, to a oval/circular pattern.

So far: (thumbed)

Okay. Now, get your other images, and do the same with them. Place your images into different angles, and erase them continually, into the shape of an oval, or a circle.
(View my progression below)

Not quite what you were expecting huh?
We're not done!

After you have finished making your collage, go up to Filter> Sharpen> Sharpen, to give the collage that collage-y touch.

Okay, now. When you have all your images placed, and all done in once college, its time to do the fun stuff!

Make a new layer JUST ABOVE YOUR BACKGROUND LAYER (first layer)

You can now add whatever brushes you would like to the collage.

You can add colorize layers, and add anything you want.


Any questions, PM me! :)

This is cute. The blending could be a bit better in certain areas but it is a good tutorial.

use the eraser tool to erase pixels, so they can be transparent.

By IBangBaby on Jun 3, 2008 10:56 pm do you make it look all blended in?
like you can pile pictures on top of each other but they look blended in.
