How to create simple photo-collage with Microsoft Publisher
Generally speaking, a collage is a piece of art created by pasting bits of objects together with a specific purpose in a pleasing layout. A collage of photos or picture can be made on the computer too. According to Katelyn Kelley, a collage is created by overlapping or combining pictures in a design is called photo-collage. Thus, at times it is worthwhile to put many pictures in one convenient and artistically designed setting or template.

After a picture taking spree during a tour or a memorable event, you've probably taken a lot of pictures to remember different moments. Printing pictures individually is a costly affair that hardly seems worth the time, money and effort. Instead, it might be worthwhile to create a collage of pictures.

If you're a beginner, you can make use of Microsoft Publisher by pasting a main photo that is bigger than the rest to provide a focal point for your collage and rest of the pictures around it. Viewers' eyes will probably start and end at the bigger photo and relate to rest of them.

Proceed as follows to make a simple photo collage with Microsoft Publisher as follows.

-Open a blank print publication with Microsoft Publisher and select or change the page orientation, if desired.

-Insert photographs, by selecting "Insert" "Picture" "From File" from the menu bar.

-Select a photo and click on "Insert."

-Resize the photo by clicking on the photo and pull in on the corners only to avoid distorting the photo.

-Drag the photo by placing your cursor on the photo until your cursor turns into four arrows and use your mouse to move the photo to the desired area on the page. You can always change its location again.

- Insert additional photographs by redoing steps two through four.

- Change the way the photos are layered by right clicking on a photo and selecting "Order" from the menu. Use the selections, such as "Bring to Front" or "Send to Back" to re-layer the photos as desired.

-Add additional elements to your collage such as a page background, text boxes, WordArt and photo borders, if desired

-Save your file by choosing "Save" from the File menu

-Save your file as a web page by choosing "Save As" from the File menu

Try Microsoft Publisher to combine your favourite photos into a creative collage to share with family and friends. The templates shown in the inset picture may be helpful to design your photo-collage. It is always good to make a beginning with five or six photographs. The inset phot-collage shows the collage templates as a part the collage itself.
