How To Make a Photo Collage in Photoshop

I use Photoshop for just about everything and making collages is no exception. All images are copyright ET Imagery and are from the wonderful Philadelphia Flower Show.

Open a blank project- use whatever size you want your final collage to be.


Create a BLACK rectangle with no border. And another, and another….


Until you have the entire page filled and fitting snugly together like a puzzle.


Open a photo in a new tab, select and copy.


Paste onto collage and decide which rectangle will be the final destination for this image.  Then move your image layer (in the layers window on bottom right) ABOVE the chosen rectangle layer.


Resize image to fit (doesn’t need to be exact & remember to hit the little lock symbol on upper left to keep your size ratio correct) Then RIGHT click image layer and select “CREATE CLIPPING MASK”


Voila! There it is! It’s strangely satisfying to see your image magically nested into a rectangle. Rest assured however, this feeling will go away after about the 30th image.


Rinse and repeat.
