Making Photo Collages and Adding Watermarks

I may have mentioned once or twice how technologically challenged I am. I’m so not exaggerating either!

Last week when I was working on my Piping 101 post, I went on a quest to learn how to add words and watermarks to photos. Like this:

I had visions of pretty collages numbered with steps to match the directions but had not even one teeny tiny little clue how to do it!

Seriously, not one.

Like a God-send, I got an email from Blogging with Amy (you may remember how much I have already gone on and on about how much I love her site) with step by step instructions to do both.

It’s a free site called

And in just a few short minutes, check out what I made!

How cool is that?

The site is super easy to use and has tons of options. It’s a great alternative to Picnik (for all of you who are missing that)!

To make it even easier, check out Amy’s videos on How to Make a Photo Collage and How to Add Text or a Watermark to a Photo.

    iPiccy is great! I also like pic monkey.

    Great post!!! iPiccy is great and I totally miss Picnik! I totally went on the same quest a couple months ago and was surprised how many cool sites do free editing and such. I have photoshop but I am totally lazy! :)

    Wow, really within a few minutes? I have never used these sites before (so trust me I am way behind than you!)… I guess I’m a bit lazy. I really think your collage looks so beautiful. Thanks for sharing the video. I need to keep this so that one day I can spend the time to learn!

    I love it! I’ve been using PicMonkey lately since Picnik went away. I keep saying I want to splurge on photo editing software…but at the same time I really like what’s available online for free!

      Me too – there are just so many photo editing programs out there I’m not sure where I’d begin if I went to buy one.

    Hi Jen – that sounds like a really great site – I’ll have to check it out. Up to now I’ve been using Picasa, from Google. It’s not online, you’d need to install it on your computer but it’s got some great collage making tools as well!

    I love ipiccy! After picnic closed i hanging out on pic monkey! Great photos and very informative post Jen!

    This is really neat, especially to someone like me who only uses Paint to make collages. And it takes. for. ev. er. I’ll have to check out iPiccy. Thanks, Jen!

    Cute! :) Very sound advice, too.

    I had been using Pixlr and Picnik (before it closed), so I’m always on the look out for photo editing sites that are free! Thanks for the link, Jen!

    Love the collage. Thanks for the top on the site, I hadn’t heard of them.

    Great collage. As people have said, PicMonkey too is a great alternative. It’s easy to create a collage in there evn though they haven’t enabled collages, lol.

    I prefer to use Photoshop. But with my last one, I did it in PicMonkey until I couldn’t get the fonts to be all different coloured for each letter which I finished off in Photoshop.

    I’m definitely going to check it out. :) Thanks for the great information. :)

    Oooh, thanks so much for sharing this!! I am also totally technologically useless, and thought this was totally out of my league :)

    Nice job!! I don’t know how to collage…hmm…unless it involves bristol board and glue! …OK who am I kidding. Not even then.

    I use Photoshop, but this seems to work great, too! And my watermarks I add in Irfanview when I batch-process my PSD files into JPGs. Cute kids!

      I’m pretty sure what you just said was in English, but the technologically challenged part of me just went, “What?”

    Thanks so much for sharing this site! I am off to check it out :-)

    Ug! I spent all day yesterday looking for a free, easy to use collage maker! And now you go and post this! YIPPIE!!! Thanks for the tips…

    Ooh yay! I didn’t know about this site, thanks for sharing :)

    Jen…thanks so much for sharing the links on this post. Your photo collage turned out beautifully and I really need to learn about these things! : )

    This is just what I have been looking for. I am so glad I finally got around to reading this post. I guess you know what I will be up to this weekend.

    Oh, thank you! I can’t wait to try this site. I am so not computer savvy either. I played with Gimp a little, but couldn’t figure out the sizing/layering process. I need a basic template :)

      Gimp is a huge pain in the patootie! Once you’ve got it figured out, it’s amazing what you can do with it, but it still kicks my rear!
