Creating Photo Collages in Photoshop

with Amy Johnson

April 5 - May 9, 2021


I have been creating photo collages in Photoshop for my clients for almost 20 years. My clients are dog show exhibitors, so my collages all have dogs in them. Here are a few of my favorites.

The great thing about collages is you can make them with ANY subject! If you want to make a collage of your family photos or birds or wildlife or pets,

you can do it! And I can show you how! 


If these styles aren't what you have in mind, bring samples of what you'd like to do to class and I can help you reverse engineer them to create them for yourself. (You must sign up at Ultimate to take advantage of this level of interaction.)
