iPiccy and Collages

There is header hope after the demise of Picnik. Brenda of Cozy Little House wrote a great tutorial today on using iPiccy which has COLLAGES. Following her tutorial I made the collage (below) and then added text with PicMonkey, and as I practice more with iPiccy I find that they also have text. More than meets the eye.
Following Brenda's tutorial was easy. Very clear instructions from Adobe Flash Player took a few minutes [Mac uploading issues] for hosting pictures on one's own hard drive and restarting the browser took a couple of extra minutes but that was 'one time only'. After that everything went smoothly. Big WOW. I am happy.

I do notice that the collages are quite large . The next one I pixel sized it as low as it would go on the program. (see last picture for more 'learning' about Blender).
The above is with mirror frame.
This has a few editing changes and a different frame, museum I think.
So, collages are back, thanks to iPiccy 
and Brenda of Cozy Little House for writing the tutorial.

Then I went back again and made one more collage
and discovered what "Blender" meant.
After making the collage I clicked on Blender and it allowed me to group the collage pictures into one picture and then resize the collage (I picked 980).
So, the problem with resizing is also solved.

  1. What an informative post! Thanks! I visited the links and hope to learn how to edit my poor photos. I am NOT a photographer and they need all the help they can get!!

  2. I'm happy to know there is text. I resize my banner to around 980 too. I'm not so anxious for Picmonkey now. Don't know how I missed this program. But I'm glad someone brought it to my attention! Thanks for the mention.

  3. TFS, makes a very pretty collage.

  4. That's great to know - I love the one with the diamond center.
    Thanks Joy!
