How to compact 2 pictures using Picasa

Picasa is a free photo editing software made by google!
If you don't already have Picasa, click here to download it!

It just takes a few minutes and you are there.

OPEN a picture that you want to start with
(In your picture files on your computer open with Picasa photo viewer
then edit in Picasa
Which brings you to this Screen
On the top bar (CREATE pull down menu to ~~~COLLAGE)

Step two:  this is what the collage screen looks like

Step Three:  Adding you photos to the screen
you do this by clicking the clips tab and get more..

Step 4:  you drag the photos you want in, caution if yu are fast it will out them all on so click in a open white spot first then one at a time.

Step 5:  You then click the Settings tab which brings you to this

Step 6: You then click the very last on the list in the menus in the box where you see shaded gray

Then waahh Laaah you have combined two pictures into one

It sends in to a draft mode and in a moment you can save by the file save button.
Save somewhere you save your photos because Picasa saves it in a collage folder too.

Then you are Done
