Here’s how I print 4×6 photo collages for The Happy Planner with PicMonkey!
Memory keeping inquiries are the type I get most often on my Instagram, and I am FINALLY putting together more tutorials in pictorial form for you, yay! Thanks so much for your patience; I’m very happy you are looking to me for a little bit of help in this arena. It’s an honor to share what I know =)
1) I go to PicMonkey.com and choose “collage”.
If there are stock pictures already in the squares, click “clear all” to get rid of them.
2) Now that the squares of the collage are empty, change the collage LAYOUT.
- Choose the layout icon on the left and
- click the collage layout called “square deal”
- with 4 boxes on it.how to print 4×6 photo collage happy planner picmonkey
3) Time to change the size.
- Look at the bottom of the screen, under your collage.
- In the left size box enter 1800,
- then click the lock icon to UNLOCK the proportions.
- In the right box, enter 1200,
- then click the lock icon again to LOCK the proportions =) This is what makes the collage a 4×6 size.
4) To add your images to the collage,
- click the images icon on the left,
- then click “add images”,
- select the pictures you want to use,
- click “open” and they will be added to PicMonkey.
4) Begin clicking and dragging your added pictures into the boxes of the collage.
You’ll notice that you need more boxes on the collage, right? It’s easy to create more so that you have 4 boxes on the top row and 4 on the bottom row, so they will all fit in The Happy Planner boxes like mine do.
5) Just click and drag another one of your pictures to the collage until you see a blue rectangle appear;
let go of the mouse button and your picture will settle into a brand new box on the collage.
When you have 4 pics on the top row and 4 on the bottom row, you may notice that some of the pics are cut off, need to be edited, etc. See how my face is not in that picture? We can easily fix that.
You can click and drag individual rectangles around, or hover over the image to select the pencil.
You can reduce the white background spacing around the photos by
clicking the palette icon and moving the “spacing” tool.
Now you can click save to keep your awesome 4×6 collage of 8 photos to fit your classic Happy Planner! Print your picture as you usually do, trim the rectangles, and adhere them to your week for memory planning!
