How to Make a Photo Puzzle

After the photos are ready to go on the design template, your creative juices will really start to flow as you arrange all of your favorite shots in order. You can either choose to get creative with your own placement ideas or you can take the thinking out of it by letting Collage.com’s automatic placement service do the work for you.
