But today I am going to show you how to make a 
simple photo header on

Step 1:
Upload photos (without a subscription I believe it will let you upload 5 pics at a time)
Step 2:
Click on the Collage Button and choose the strip of your choice

Step 3:
Input photos (they will be located at the bottom left and you can drag them where you want)

Step 4:
Play with the sliders to change the distance, size, "kookiness", and background color. When it looks the way you prefer press done (top right). It will take you to the create page.

Step 5:
Add Text

Step 6: Add Stickers or anything else you prefer (play around in this area to get the look you want!)

Step 7: After you have the look you want, press Save and Share and your new header is ready to go!!

It's a simple look, but a good option if you are just starting out!!!

Where do you guys make your headers???

I'm a GIMP girl all the way! I'm in between headers right now b/c I'm trying to choose the new direction for my design but it's SUCH a great tool!! I love it!

Ohhh that doesn't seem that hard at all! Thanks for the tutorial! I just use my dad's graphic design skills - he designs logos on Corel Draw. Other than that I have no clue! I just can't figure out my blog width so my header is cut off ha. But this is a good option!

And yep, I'm a Colorado girl! And LOVE it!

Great tips and you are always so helpful! Picnik has been a favorite of mine for a few years when I don't want to do something quickly and bypass Photoshop! I hope you are having a Wonderful Weekend, Ashley!

I like to make mine in Photoshop Elements, and I just got done making one! It took some tweaking, but I like it for now! I was wondering, how do you make the title go across the whole page?

Sarah said...

That is such a great post. I have used Picnik for a while, and never noticed the Collage tab. I am going to try do it tonight. I think this is also good for just making photo collages and adding to blog posts and Pinterest! Thanks again
