Windows 11 large collage using PSE 22

How can I make a large collage of about 18 family photos about 20x30 inches in PSE 22?  I think I would try to somehow set an image size of 20x30 inches.  Then keep adding layers in various positions to create the collage?

 My ultimate goal is to order a 20x30 inch canvas print using the final collage jpeg image.

Thanks for your assistance

Yes, that would be the way to do it.  But, you may also want to find out the requirements of the printing service. For example, they may want a specific size, format and resolution. Also, consider what background and/or borders you want around the individual images.

This is just one way, using simple shapes.  Set your canvas up to 20 x 300 inches at 300 dpi- then get started making the shapes.  If all your shapes are the same size:  make one row only, group it, duplicate that row twice to come up with 18 shapes.

Hi Glenn;
Thanks very much for the suggestion using shapes.
I haven't been successful though. I import a photo and then set up a 20x30 inch canvas around it. I then tried selecting and moving a shape onto the canvas. However, once I accept the shape on the canvas its invisible so I cant see it to insert a photo.

Also I was wondering do I only select the black filled shapes to use for photos?

Thanks,

Bob

the shapes can be any color you choose.  They are place holders when used as a clipping mask.
