    You could use any application(s) that you are familiar with.

    For instance, some are more familiar with PowerPoint - so they insert the images in the powerpoint slide and convert it into an image before uploading to the blog.

    Hope that helps.

    Others:
    If you have other suggestions, you are most welcome to share.

    Cheers!

  4. Hi Daniel

    I guess you would have gotten the "images" you intend to insert into the collage?

    If you are using powerpoint, simply organise all the images in the same slide.

    When it is ready, save the powerpoint as an image (i.e. "JPEG" file). Then it's done :D

    If you are exploring your Macbook, you may try "KeyNote". It would be the same way of doing. Simply save your work as an image.

    So, I guess you know what to do with the image next :D

    Happy exploring :D

    Cheers!

  10. Hi Harsh

    Try this...
    1. Go to FILE, select EXPORT
    2. You will notice there are 6 different options: QuickTime, PPT, PDF, Images, HTML and iPOD
    3. Choose IMAGES and decide on the slide you want to export, as well as the quality of the image.
    Well, since it's to be uploaded on the blog, it's not necessary to choose high resolution.

    Hope that helps :D
    Cheers!

  15. Thanks for the sharing!

    In fact, I've tried the online version of Shape Collage. Pretty user-friendly, and we could create text collage. However, there's a limit to the number of characters :(

    Here's my masterpiece.
