Free Online Photo Collage Maker – Canva


hi there in this video I was looking for
a free online photo collage maker and I’ve been using canva quite a lot and
actually found that it’s really easy to make a photo collage so I made this one
and it took a couple of minutes and let’s look at how I did it so I’ll go
over to canva first of all and I’ll come out of that and start from the
beginning so I just picked a template to start with and any of these are okay
really it depends what size I need and I just clicked on this one presentation and the next thing to do I don’t really
need any of these templates they don’t suit what I’m doing all I want to do is
have the like an outline or a border for a photo and then to insert the images
inside so over here I just did a search for photo and I’m just looking for a
free one and I’m actually looking over here illustrations and
you can insert images inside these and I just picked this one here I could have
picked some different ones and can use some different designs here but I just
picked this one it’s free and it suits what I’m doing that’s a little bit big
so I’m just gonna resize grab that corner and maybe make it that big then I
need a few copies of it so I’m just going to ctrl C then ctrl V maybe eight
times or seven times that’s one two three four five six seven that’s
probably enough and I’m just going to put them in a different place that’s on the top that’ll be good for there and I’m
just gonna use this handle at the bottom to mix them around a bit I’m gonna leave
a little bit of the background showing let’s twist them around first I think
and just move them into place just gonna have a bit of the background all around I think that’s good just one more up
here okay that looks fine I think that looks good they’re kind of mixed up a
little bit and you’ve got some of the background let’s go ahead just do the
background quickly first we can either choose one of these patterns or we could
use a color anyone will do this just looks like a table this one so I’m just
gonna so just drag it over it and let go so that’s done a bit of a background and
then all I need now is to insert the images and it’s really easy if I want
to actually search for some here and use theirs then I can do whatever I’m
looking for maybe we want to do a collage of people having fun so I just
search for fun and then we could use some of these free
images they’ve got a few free ones at the top and then tends to me if you go
down you can find a few more free ones if you don’t want to use your own images
so here’s some more free ones down here and you could just find the free ones
you could also go here to pixabay let’s do a search for fun on pixabay and you
can find some images there that you could always add or you could add your
own ones because I’m doing this as a demonstration I’m just gonna add a few
of theirs and a few that I download from pixabay so let’s maybe we can pick these
frog ones actually that would look quite good there’s quite a few of these frog
ones so let’s do that I think it’s I’m just going to hold the
ctrl key down and select them so I can open up lots of different windows with
them let’s do that just really a demonstration on how to do it anyway not sure there’s any more of those frog
ones there’s another one I think that’s enough I’ve got at least eight there so
let’s download those we’ve got free download here I’m just going to do this
small size I don’t want it to take too long and we don’t need it big anyway so
that 640 is enough normally you would just upload your images that you
want to use I think one more okay so downloaded all
those images let’s go back to the presentation and then I’ll click over
here on the Left upload and these are some of my images from my I’ve got a
website blogpiks.com that you can download free images from so you could
get ones like this if you want to do that but I’m going to upload those
images I’ll leave a link to that website below anyway and I’m just gonna look in
downloads then and just pick these you can actually if you hold down the
control key you can select them all at the same time so I’m going to select all
of these I think those two pretty much the same or download both of those
that’s enough should be three four five six seven eight I think that’s all we’ve
got is eight anyway so I’m gonna click open and you just have to wait until
this green line goes right across so that they’re completely uploaded and
then that green line would disappear so as soon as the green line disappears
like this one I can then drag it and it’s really good when you
drag it across onto an image it repositions and resizes everything if
you want to reposition it a little bit you can double click and then you can
move it around and you could enlarge it a little bit and then click
enter – oops click enter and it’ll position it so that’s done let’s just
drag the others in I think this one’s done so let’s just drag the others
and then we’ll just reposition afterwards maybe that one looks good on
the front then that one so let’s do this one
it’s really good the way it resizes we haven’t done this one yet and then
this one and this one that’s it pretty much done all we have to do is if we
need to move them around this one looks okay I might want to change this image
for one of the others I’ve done this image twice did I miss one out then I’m
not sure I don’t even have to delete if I want to replace these I just drag it
on top so say I want to replace that one with that I just drag it and it will
replace it and then I think we haven’t done this one yet so I can put that on
there so you just drag them on top and it’ll replace them and that’s okay I
think these ones we don’t really need to remove these at all because they’re in
the background this one looks okay and I think this one looks okay as well I
can double click if I did want to zoom in on the faces there and then click
enter that’s it done really simple really quick if you do resize any of
these then it resizes the image anyway that’s underneath it so maybe you want a
big one on top but I don’t think so I think they should all be the same size so I’ll
control z just put that back there just undoes it and then once you’ve done
click download and then here you can download it if you do use any of their
images that you pay for then it just comes up with the payment thing now but
I uploaded these images so it’s all free and I used a free template so
let’s have a look at the oh I’ve done that as a PDF I didn’t mean to I wanted
to do it as a JPEG let’s just do it again that took a minute or so to download so
I just stopped the video then let’s have a look at that and that’s it the
finished one I think that’s pretty good nice and lively looks pretty colourful
nice and lively and it looks good okay if you found it useful please give me a
thumbs up here on YouTube and if you want to look at other videos I’ve done
quite a lot of videos about canva and about using images for your website and
your marketing and also about using videos and animated videos so if those
interest you please subscribe to my channel if you’ve got any comments or
questions please put them down below and if you’ve made similar collages if you
have some different software you’d like me to try out then please put that in
