If you want a neat way to display some of your travel photos you simply set up a free account with Picasa… download Picasa 3 and upload any or all of your travel photos in folders or not. From there you chose a group of travel photos. Go to file on top left corner, select new album, name it, highlight 7-10 photos, hold down Ctrl key, right click any photo, select add to album (new one you just named) click first photo, hold shift key down, click create at top, Done.
From there you can chose settings where you have six different ones starting with:Picture Pile ( scrambled), Mosaic (most popular), Frame Mosaic with a center picture, Grid, Contact photo sheet, and finally Superimpose. Click on any setting and it will automatically change the collage.
You can also edit and crop any of your photos and move them around in the order that you like and make them smaller or bigger, select all for border around photos, plus many more choices. Using the collage of travel photos is a good way to put them on a slide show and show your friends a kaleidoscope of photos from any of your travels or photo ops.
So there you have it! If you want a simple and quick system to place your travel photos in a collage… Picasa is definitely the way to go! There are also many other websites that offer similar photo collage services. Only one thing–too many green grasshoppers could ruin a good photo collage.

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW:A collage is a work of art composed of numerous materials, such as paper, newsprint, photographs, ribbons or other objects attached to background support, such as plain paper. A collage can even be made with physical materials or electronic images, attaching them to a digital background. Originating from the French word “coller”, meaning “to glue”, the collage allows you to experiment with a wide range of materials to achieve amazing end results. There are many possibilities limited only by your creativity and imagination.
THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE: Your newly created Collages..Picasa does that for you and you still have your original photos.
