When you are finished it should look like 1 image!!Collage must be: 11x17300 resolution This project is a good way to get newbies acquainted with various tools in Photoshop. I sometimes provide the students with a folder of royalty free images; it is interesting to see the variations students come up with, given the same variety of images.
