Creating Collages for Your Blog + 3 Free Photoshop Templates
Hi all! I wanted to pop in today to share some Photoshop collage templates with you. If you are anything like me you have a LOT of photos that you'd love to share. While I'd love to share photo after photo with you in this space, I don't want to keep you scrolling for days on end. Enter, the collage.
Each of these templates includes a layer where you'll place your photo and resize/adjust as necessary. You'll then create a Clipping Mask (you can right click and select this option on the layer that contains your photo) to place it in that spot. Easy, peasy!
Here are some examples of how I have used them...
The first template is simple and a great way to share several photos from one particular setting or event. I've used some photos from a fall walk on the Furman campus last year as an example.
The second template would make a great intro photo for a blog post for something like a visit to a new city or an event or holiday of some kind. I included a layer that has a pre-built shape where you can add your own text. You can also change the color of the shape to fit the mood of your photos... or take it out completely! Here is an example using photos from a hike we took on a trip to Highlands, NC last summer.
The last template is perfect for when you have a LOT of photos to share. This example includes photos from a day spent exploring downtown Greenville on a cold winter day. I included photos from walking through falls park as well as a stop for hot chocolate at a local coffee shop. It can be tedious to create this collage since there are so many small spots for photos, but it's an awesome way to share a lot of photos and convey the setting or mood of a place or event.
I hope you enjoy these collages and use them for your blog! Please let me know if you have questions on using them. I'm happy to help!
