Help building photo collage

->> Looking to build a photo collage but was wondering if there was a program of sort to do it automatically. Basically I want to put 30-50 pictures together like you see on some web sites or inside a cd cover. All horizontal pictures. I figure it would be time consuming to do this one by one so do any of you know how to do this in a simple way. I found photomerge on photoshop and will play with that and see if it works. Any freeware out there?

->> this shouldnt be that hard as to require another program. just build your template in photoshop or indesign using grids and then snap all the photos into place. shouldnt be too hard at all.

->> Need more information. Do you want hard edges on all the photos just bumped up next to each other or do you want the edges to blend together? If you want the later, it is a time consuming endeavor and requires some knowledge on photo masking and gradiant work using photoshop. Just placing them next to each with no blending is fairly simple. Personally, I don't know of any software that will automatically do either.

->> Thanks guys so far. I am looking for hard edges. They don't need to blend in any way. Just a cluttered grouping of photos. My main concern is that they are all the same size. I saw one of our members have a web site with this look. Just a bunch of photos put together. It probably had over 60 pictures in one.

->> I don't know how many of these collages you're doing. In general, you can always do them in indesign or cs. However, if you're doing many of them, don't want to fuss with layouts, etc, and using windows or windows on a VM on mac, check out fotofusion by lumapix.

It's really designed for scrapbook moms, senior portrait photogs and wedding photogs because you easily create photo collage layouts easily. I know there are companies out there that sell layout designs packages (wedding books, etc) for this software.

->> I just noticed Picasa has this built in. I am playing with it now and very simple. Select a folder of images and select how you want them presented and Bam! It's done. You can even select having space in between them and a background photo.
