What kind of Master-Image to choose for a collage?

If you decided to create a collage, the first thing you’ll need to do is to pick a Master Image. The quality of your collage will ultimately depend on it. All other things, including the selection of mini-images, are just details that will help you better highlight the beauty of the source image.

For best results, stick to the following simple rules:

First of all, you’ve got to really like the source image. The object, the scene, the memories associated with the photo – everything has to generate positive vibes. Artensoft Photo Collage Maker enables you to create high-resolution collages that can be printed in a large format and beautifully framed to bring joy to you, your friends and family.

Secondly, use close-up shots as source images. It’s a lot easier and faster to create a good collage using a portrait or a macro shot. The thing is that it’s fairly difficult to draw small objects in a collage. To do that, you need to increase the number of nesting levels and at the same time decrease the number of mini-image to an extent that it will nearly impossible to see them in the final image with a naked eye. That is why group photos are not a good choice for a collage, while studio portraits or close-up shots of your favorite pets will become great sources for your collages.

The third obvious advantage of a base image is good sharpness. The sharpness of the main object is the most important thing – for instance, that of a butterfly on a macro photo, or a couple on a wedding photo. As for everything else, like the background and other insignificant elements – it will be better for them to stay out of focus.

The contrast of the source image is just equally important. Bright and vivid colors, as well as abrupt transitions between colors can add some highlight and emotions to the main object. Just imagine: a portrait of a bride with a huge bunch of roses standing against a clear blue sky...

Try picking a photo that will turn into a collage that will not be just a beautiful picture, but something with a meaning. For example, a car enthusiast will appreciate a collage with his favorite car, a proud grandmother will love a portrait of her beloved grandson composed of his early photos, a cat lover will enjoy a photo of his pet, and your travel-obsessed friend will be delighted to get a photo of a world-famous location made of photos from his own trips. Finally, Artensoft Photo Collage Maker will let you create a very "flowery" portrait of your own self.

Main advice: always experiment! Even if the selected photo does not exactly meet the above criteria. Each collage is individual and unique. The final decision is totally yours. Follow your intuition and imagination, and Artensoft Photo Collage Maker will do the rest.
