Scrapbook How To: Make a Photo Collage using Picasa

When you create do you tend to shuffle your photos around on the page, rearranging over and over for 15 to 20 minutes? If so, try creating a photo collage using Picasa, a free online service that’s easy to download and use. Once your collage is created, print your photo, place it on your layout, and add your title and accents. Easy and quick.
