How to > Create a collage poster
Choose a style
With your poster size selected, it’s time to choose a style. Think about the pictures from your account you might wish to use. There are backgrounds centered on babies, weddings, sports and travel; for other themes, you can choose from a variety of colors and patterns. Thinking about arranging your pictures in specific layouts and backgrounds now will save you editing time later.
Click on the magnifying-glass icon for a closer look at any theme. You can also switch to related backgrounds using the arrows at the top of the pop-up window.
Let’s say you’ve chosen a 16x20 poster to celebrate Earth Day. A solid green background would be appropriate for the occasion. On the left of the “Choose Style” page, select “Solids and Textures” from the list of backgrounds, then select “Green.”
NOTE: If you’ve selected an 8x10-sized poster, you’ll also need to choose between a Glossy and Matte Finish. (The 11x14, 16x20 and 20x30-sized posters are only available in Matte.)
At this point, you’ll also want to save your project, so that if you need to take a break from creating a collage poster you don’t have to start from the beginning. Click the “Save” button in the upper-right and name your poster. Then click “Next.”
