How to use our photoshop collage templates

Our free photo layout templates are deliberately simple, allowing for your pictures to really capture the viewer and tell a clear & powerful story. Designing it this way makes it very easy and quick to use, so you don’t waste any time getting images onto your blog page. All 13 our templates are precisely measured so your pictures can fit perfectly.

Step 1 | Open the File – To begin simply open the .psd file of the template you want to use and you should see something like this pop up:

Step 2 | Insert Images – It’s time to insert your awesome images! To replace the images inside the template open the Layers window (usually located on the bottom right side of the screen).

If you look there are checkered boxes which accompany each part of the template. To change the picture in the specific region, double-click on the Smart Object Icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the checkered box to open up smart object file. Your image will pop up.

Next, drag & drop your image into the template. Choose the image from your computer that you want to place in this section of the template and drag it over and onto the blank space. Resize and recompose (shortcut: Cmnd/Ctrl + T) your photograph inside the template and press enter.

Step 3 | Flatten the Image & Save – Finally, right-click on the Image Layer to pull up the Menu, and select ‘Flatten Image’. Save the new Image Layer and close out that tab and you will see that your template has been modified to showcase your image.

Step 4 | Repeat – All you have to do is repeat this process for each section of the template. In our example, we would need to select one more image to fill in the rest of the remaining slots. Remember that when you click the Smart Object Icon it opens that layer into a new tab in Photoshop. After adding an image, you must save that layer for it to show up in the original template.
