Wish I was there…

Background

With the creation of the internet it has become much easier to learn about and see places you may not have seen otherwise. Any time I go on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter my feed is always filled with pictures of exotic destinations which gave me the idea to do #VisualAssignment1674. While I have many dream vacation spots I decided to cut it down to the 5 necessary for this collage assignment.

Process

To start off my collage I started to look for interesting locations. While a simple “vacation spots” Google search turns up images of bright blue lagoons so I decided to search for some more specific locations for my collage. The places I decided on were England, Fiji, Hawaii, Iceland, and Santorini. After deciding on these images I need to choose a collage maker. For this I used Photo Collage Maker- CollageFactory Free available on the iTunes App Store.

After downloading this app I opened it on my computer. I clicked on ‘FreeStyle’ which is the second option on the left under ‘Collages’. From here I clicked on ‘Free Style 5-1’ and pressed ‘ok’.

Then I clicked the image at the bottom left side of the screen which is a box with a green plus sign on it. After clicking this you choose what images to upload. After adding them all of your images will appear on the left side of the screen.

I then dragged each image into a box on the right side of the screen. Then I changed the margin lines by dragging the scale to zero. After this my collage is complete.
