Collage posters can be used for various purposes such as, advertising some events, displaying instructions or just to mark a period in the life of the collage maker.

Making collage posters
Making collage posters is a fun and interesting hobby. Many enthusiasts practice making collage posters for social gatherings, school and college programs, business presentations and education campaigns. An exquisite collage poster can prove to be a unique gift to friends and family as well.
To begin making your collage poster, you will need to first decide what you want on the poster. Search the internet for interesting collage poster designs and try replicating or customizing them, if you are not getting any bright ideas. Collage posters are usually big in size, so to start with, you need a big base for your poster. According to the design in your mind, collect photographs, pictures, newspaper clippings and paintings, and cut them out into desirable shapes. You can cut out words or individual alphabets to add more meaning to your poster. With the aid of a pencil, make a rough sketch on your base and place the collected materials on the base first, to get a visual feel of your finished collage poster. Now, either paste these materials individually to your base or apply a diluted solution of glue with a brush, pasting all of them at once. After drying, you can add captions or decorative items to further decorate your collage poster.
Collage posters can also be created with picture editing software such as FotoFusion 3.0, Life Poster Maker, Wondershare Photo Collage Studio 188.8.131.52, Adobe Photoshop, PicArtia and PhotoVisi. You can download the trial versions of the original softwares to start with your digital collage poster. There are other free software, which you can download or work on online, to create digital collage posters. You will need to select many pictures and photos to make a full size collage poster, all of which will have to be available in digital format. After choosing your template, drag and drop the selected pictures on it and further customize the settings and effects according to your choice. Try to maintain a high picture resolution so that the printed version of the collage poster comes out beautifully. If you are planning to sell your collage posters, be careful of copyright issues, with regard to using pictures from the internet. Make sure you have the required permissions to use and sell the images.
Collage posters usually are preferred on a bright background, so choose your base color wisely, although you can go in for a black and white poster if the situation demands it. Collecting ready-made collage posters can be also considered as a hobby, although the fun lies in personally creating them. You can search for interesting templates of collage posters on the internet and work on your ideas. Collage posters are great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, reunions and various other occasions. To make yours unique, add a personal touch, such as favorite color, signature, photograph or even a symbol, to your collage poster.
