I’m still working on my #Phonebooking2015 project and still really enjoying it!! Check out all of my previous posts and grab the FREE date cards to use in your pocket layouts or Project Life pages (they work perfect in the app) for January-September in the Phonebooking category of the site.
Sometimes, when I’m working on a layout in my Project Life App, I have too many photos for the spots on a layout. I want to make a collage of 3×4 photos for a 3×4 journaling/photo spot. The Project Life App comes with some photo collage options, but none of them work for the 3×4 aspect ratio (a 4×6 has a different aspect ratio, so it won’t fit in a 3×4 spot quite right). I also don’t like having to exit OUT of my layout to create the collage in the collage portion of the app, and then come back to my layout).
I’ve started using the Pic Stitch app to create these simple collages. Here’s how…
After opening the app, select the layout style you want. I usually always use the two up and two down grid.
To change the aspect ratio, tap “Aspect” at the bottom.
Then select the 3×4 aspect by tapping it.
Tap on a photo spot and then you will be able to go to your photos and select all of the photos you want to add to the collage. They will then open with the collage. Just drag and drop the photos into a photo spot.
After you are done placing the photos, tap on the arrow on the right to make the photos disappear and the editing menu appear.
There are a lot of really fun things you can do here. Add drop shadows, round the corners, or change the thickness and color of the stroke around the edges of the photos (that’s the three lines on the top menu).
Finally, tap export and then save to photos.
Now, you can access the collage as a photo from the Project Life App and add it to a 3×4 spot.
Now, I’m ready to add all of the other photos, journaling cards, and filler cards to create my layout documenting the fun visit I had with Katie while I was in Utah!
These collages would also be great to use on a digital scrapbook page OR print and use in the physical Project Life as well!
