What image format can be used in the photo collage maker?
To create your photo collage, you must use images that are stored in JPG format. JPG or JPEG is the most common image format and is the standard image format used by every smartphone and digital camera.
How many photos can be used to create a photo collage?
This depends on which template you want to use to make your photo collage. You can choose from several photo collage templates.
How do I find my desired template?
By default, a template is already selected for your photo collage. Your photos will be automatically inserted when you click on “Auto-fill”. However, if you wish to, you can change the template of your collage to one of our many alternative designs. We have a selection of many different styles from which you can choose. These are divided into collages for "3-9 pictures", "10 to 20 pictures" and "more than 20 pictures." By clicking on "Generate the collage" the template is accepted. Now, you just have to fill the collage and it will be finished. Check out our video tutorial!
In what colour space must my images be? RGB or CMYK?
It is of no importance which colour space you use since our software automatically recognises the colour space of your pictures and adjusts the print template accordingly for optimal results. However, the default colour space in digital photography is RGB.
Is there a minimum resolution for my image files?
Nowadays, you can pretty much create a photo collage with any digital photo since digital cameras today all produce photos of sufficient resolution from which you can make and print a photo collage online. If your image files are too small, our system will warn you by displaying a red smiley so that you can easily see which image files are suitable for creating a photo collage. If you make sure to only use suitable photos, your photo collage will always look perfect. But remember, the higher the resolution of your image files, the better your online and printed photo collage will look.
In what sizes and formats can I create my photo collage?
Our photo collages can be ordered in all formats offered by us. The different formats are also available in many different sizes, from small 20 x 20 cm to huge 160 x 120 cm photo collages.
How can I upload my photos to my gallery?
After you have chosen your collage template, you can upload your photos by clicking on 'Add photos' button (top right) in the 'My photos' area. You can upload more than one image by holding down the CTRL-key. Check our video tutorial!
Can I also print out the free photo collage?
Of course. If you use our free photo collage creation service, you will get an image file corresponding to your collage. You can then print this image file using your printer at home.
What is the most popular material used to create a photo collage?
The most commonly selected product is photo collage on canvas since canvas is regarded as a very classy product. However, acrylic prints are also very popular among amateur photographers.
How do I pay for printing my photo collage?
When creating a photo collage, our partners offer several payment methods. You can pay for your photo collage print by credit card, direct debit, PayPal or simply pay by invoice.
Are the photos true colour images?
Since most computer screens today are customised by end users, colours may differ between those used when creating a photo collage and those on the screen. If you want to order a true colour photo collage, then you should use a local advertising agency or photographer who would normally use true colour systems and can give you further advice on how to create a photo collage.
