    Default Collage Help Please

    Does anyone here know how to make a collage in a picture program? I need to combine a few picture of my kids for a project that I am doing as I dont have a really nice recent group picture if you think you can help please let me know. I will post the pics in about 5 min if anyone wants to play around with it.
    Thanks

    Well here is mine. Sorry if it isn't the best quality...as I used this as a learning exercise to familiarize myself with Corel Paint Shop Pro. Doing layers with it is different enough from Photoshop, that it was entertaining at times.

    But anyhow, here is my quick and dirty submission. You will recognize the sunset backdrop as one of the 4 default photos from Window XP.

    Good job, Chako. Maybe an edge softener or slight blur would blend better and a red eye touchup on the little guy. I love that background. You have more patience with the magic wand tool than I would have had.

    I know. Have you tried the red eye touchup feature in Corel? It actually pasts fake eyes on the subject. Lol...I am playing with it and it is very odd. Not sure I like that overly much. I guess the best way would be to paint some colours with a slight transparency. Not as elegant as Photoshop.

    Well still playing around with the program.

    Here is the time machine effect circa 1836 or something.


    And the Sepia version..just messing around now.


    and the noise reduction and redeye removal version.


    I tried all the blur tools and didn't like the looks of it. This Corel program is a fun software to play with.

    Here's what I did, I only did the girls because the boy isn't dressed up like them and I didn't think I could make it flow together right. Hope you like it anyways.
