Collage makers

A couple of weeks ago an IH colleague posted about an online collage site in the #czelt facebook group.

She mentioned using it in a first lesson to make a class picture. That got me thinking about how easy and for what purpose online collage makers could be used.  A quick google shows a wide range of collage makers both paid and free to use. However I stuck with the suggested one, which was pictures2life. You need to make a free account to get the most out of it. Having done so you simply upload pictures and then choose a collage type. It’s as simple as that though you if you have more time then you can fine tune things.  While there is no embed feature, you can download your finished collage.
