In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to create photo collages in your Microsoft Digital Image program. You can select the type of layout you want for the collage, the photos you want to use, and more. This tutorial will walk you through the steps of creating these collages. You will need to begin by opening your Microsoft Digital Image program and letting it load.
Selecting the Photo Collage Option
We will first need to select the photo collage option. Go to the top of your widow and click File > Create Photo Collage. You will then see a panel on the left side of your program. This is the panel we will be using to create the photo collages.
Selecting the Orientation and Layout of the Photo Collage in Microsoft Digital Image
Now you will need to select which orientation you want to use. You will see Landscape and Portrait. Click the circle next to the one you want to use. You will then see your layouts in the panel on the right. Click the layout you want to use and click the Next button in the bottom left panel.
Selecting Your Photos for the Collage
Next, you will need to select the photos you want to use for the collage. You will need to open these photos one by one. When you open the photos, they will be placed in the panel on the far right. To open the photos, look for the More Photos link in the left panel. When you click the link a box will open. Look for a photo you want to use, click it, and open it. Click the More Photo link again and open the photo you want to use. Continue doing this until you have all of the photo opened that you want to use.
Adding the Photos to Your Collage in Microsoft Digital Image
Now you are ready to add your photos to your collage. Click a photo in the right panel. Then drag it to one of the slots in the collage. Once you have your mouse over one of the slots, let go of your mouse and the photo will be dropped in the slot.
Selecting How to Fit Your Photos in the Collage
In the left panel, you will see the options under number 4. These options will control how the photo will fit in the collage. Make your selection by clicking the circle by one of the options. You will be able to see the changes as you are making them.
Saving Your Photo Collage in Microsoft Digital Image
Once you are finished, click the Done button in the bottom left panel. You will then be returned to your main window. Go to the top of your program and click File > Save As and save your photo collage. Then you can print it or whatever you want to do with it.
