How to Make a Collage on Photobucket
By Jonae Fredericks
Photobucket is a website that allows the computer user an easy way to upload and share their digital photographs. The website has a user-friendly interface with a variety of options for editing and storing online photos. Among the many features offered by Photobucket is the opportunity to create professional looking scrapbook collages that can be saved to your account for later printing. Several digital images can be diffused into one single photo with the help of the Photobucket website. Here's how to use this very helpful feature.
Arrange your digital images in a folder on your computer. Photobucket will provide you with an online uploading tool, which you can use to browse for your photos and send them up to the site.
Go to the Photobucket website and create an account (see Resources below).
Choose the tab that reads "my albums." You will have the option of uploading your digital images via Photobucket's online uploading tool and placing them in an album folder online, or viewing your digital images that are already uploaded to the site.
Click the tab that reads "scrapbooks." This tab will open up a new window that will allow you to create your digital image collage using templates that are supplied by Photobucket. There are pages and pages of theme-based templates that will allow you to insert multiple digital images to create your collage. Choose one, and the scrapbook tool will guide you through a series of steps that will allow you to retrieve photos and view your finished product.
Save your scrapbook collage in a Photobucket album. At this point you can either view and print your collage using the Photobucket online printing source, or return to your online album to view and edit your already existing photos.
- Personal graphics software cannot be used in conjunction with Photobucket. Graphics software must be used offline, and the image then uploaded to Photobucket after it has been created.
