How to Make a Basic Collage in Photoshop CS3
Welcome to my photoshop post. In this post, you will learn something interesting. You will enjoy making a basic collage in photoshop CS3. In This video, we have given you simple to follow steps to easily understand and follow them. Then watch this video and make a simple and quick collage in a photoshop.
Okay what I am gonna do now is just to make a simple and quick collage in a photoshop so I have these four images here that I scanned from a book using a three hundred DPI and I just trying to simply drag them over the photoshop icon to import them. You can see they are opening up here what am I going to do is go to file new and I am going to create a new document going to call it a collage and I am going to use A4 paper and I am just going to click ok.
And you place your document there, and now what I want to do with this four images is to drag all of them into here well what you could do is simply drag each one like this or you could go upto if I do comment with a ample key A see i am doing select all. So I have selected the whole image and then I going to do comment C which is edit, copy and I am going to click here and do comment v which is paste. So again I am going to do comment A and then comment C and then click over here comment V and just one more time comment A comment C and click here comment V.
Then I can call the results. So see I have the four pictures right here now I am going to turn them off right now with my. Now what I would like to do is just to cut out some of these images to create the collage so you could use the, you know the magnetic lasse tool and stuff. But I am going to use the pen tool you should make sure this middle one here paths button is clicked and i am simply going to come over here now I am doing this very rough ,if you are interested in this you should perhaps follow the edges more closely well just to make get make point across here. Now just go over it very quickly.
You can see if I want to do it I can simply click the few thing here. And you can see when I get back to the beginning next to the pen tool there is that little dots. So now I am there I am going to select paths here and I am going to double click that and change it to path 1 and just click ok. And I go down to here to this little path as selection tool and click there and go back to the layers see am still using this one photo and going to click this button here layer mask and that would take out the background for me. So while do that where far all the pictures now you seems still in the pen tool. We are going to do it again really quickly and again I go to paths and double clicking here are making changes to path 2 right click ok. I go here go back to my layer click that now you see what I have done I do that all the time. You gonna select this again and than take out the background and now for the next photo make sure you double click that well this time am sorry not double click but click . Quickly cut out this and it will fine for now.
I go back to paths double click automatically path 3 go to here go back to my layer and there it is and now go to the next photo. Make sure you click it cut around there is as well, again go to paths double click ok go to this go back to my layers and if I turn all the photos back on you will see there they are. Now this are in kind of rent in order so if I drag this one to the top you see that one will go on the top and that off course with anyone. So now I quick start doing is may be will arrange it oops go back to this tool and I can start dragging it where I could like them to go. Now it would have been better if I perhaps name this photo of the girl of suit, this is women with the lamp, it’s the car and this one I don’t know which one that have been.
So the car is small put that on the top perhaps move it down here, women cooking and let’s say if I want to change some of them so I have this four of the suit left in and you see it around. And to resize you can less by you see kind of churching it down. And if I move this over you can see it in the corner as well and that just the same thing will happen so what you should to do if you wanna keep it constraint is if I go and here and I hold on shift it will keep the dimensions for me. So if you want to shrink that again holding down shift and perhaps move it up a little bit and the women at the back go back to here and click apply and say change the shape and little women cooking here perhaps I live her here.
