Hi all,Now, as part of improving my photoshop skills I tried something new. Icollected more than 10 photos I took on the same night and merged them into one as a collage. I took these photos in New York (actually New Jersey as I was on the other side of the Hudson :)) during 4th of July.

Eventually I decided to make this collage.It took me some time as you have to be super precise and calculate the needed... continue reading

I've seen several post in the boards about collages and I had a question. Would it be better to make collages of a single subject or have multiple single shots of different angles?I'm a little confused on this because I'm not sure what designers like more. Also since we're limited to the size of file we are allowed to upload, wouldn't that limit the amount or size of the images in a collage? In this respect a single image at a larger size would be better, right?If anyone knows please leave... continue reading
