I'm a photo bucket user. I was wondering if any of you who also use the site could help me.
I'm trying to add more than one photo with another image, and make it into another image, with that new image included in it (if that makes any sense).
I did it once before, with this image below:
I use it for my signature on the Josh Groban forum, to display all her most current, most commercially available albums (particularly in the US). I wanted to add Hushabye to the line-up. I actually was able to add the photo within the forum itself, so it's okay for now. And so now it looks sort of like this, but a little more lined up:
But I'm just wondering if anybody knows how I could do that in photobucket, or any other image website. And as I say, when I first created that image, I was able to do it in photobucket, but now I just can't find any way at all to do it.
I also wonder how other people are able to add artwork to photos, like Jillian was able to for those Hayley banners she created, and that some of you are still using now (Richard, for one). Where, and how on earth do you manage things like that? I even tried to see if I could do it with the Windows image stuff, where I have my pictures stored, but there's nothing.
Well, for some reason, Photobucket has changed photo editors several times in the past year. Don't know why. Just wish they had the old one back. You could do a whole lot more w/ it. For my banners, I usually just use Picasa. Nice and simple. To do what you want (if you don't want to download any software), just open up Power Point, insert & line up your images, and take a screen shot (Control-Print Screen). Then open Paint, paste (Control-V), crop, and save.
I'd say go with Picasa like Taylor suggested. It's free of course, and once you have the photos you want selected, you just go to Collage and it basically does everything for you. Useful program to have in general
My signature banner is just a straight copy of Jillian's original uploaded to my own Photobucket library.
I know that Richard.
Thanks for the tips. I don't have Picasa. I remember the name, though, so I think my family's computer had it at one time. I do have Power Point, but I haven't used that program since high school! I graduated 10 years ago this June!!! I feel so old now....
Anyway, I guess I'll try Power Point, although it sounds complicated with all the rest of it.
And for anyone who's wondering, I got my signature idea from this poster:
I'm afraid I gave up with GIMP Elliot. And I'm someone who has almost half a century's experience of working with computers. But I couldn't get my brain round that. I currently use something called Variations. Problem is it is only available on RISC OS. But since RISC OS runs on the Raspberry Pi, one of those wouldn't break the bank. Probably cheaper than Virtual Acorn on a PC (an ARM emulator that allows a PC to run RISC OS). Variations is free though. Or you can just use Paint like most amateurs.
Okay, I saved it and re-sized it in photobucket. It looks fine in photobucket, but the whole thing turns out of focus when I put it on the forum. Especially Hushabye. The image dimensions can be no larger than 500 x 200, so I made it 500 x 70.
