I want to use about 10 images and make a collage or inspiration board using Snagit trial for Mac. So far, I haven't figured out how to put two images on the board together. I'm a newbie. Help please!

Hello Chien,

The first thing I'd do is make my master image, and make it very large. It could be a transparent or solid color canvas. Then assemble your collage by dragging smaller photos onto the master image.

Check out this screenshot for an example: http://www.screencast.com/t/8sqruspX4ta

I also wanted to mention that we have some tutorials here as well: http://www.techsmith.com/tutorial-sna...

Those could help if you want to learn more about Snagit during your trial period.

Thanks for posting and thanks for mentioning that this was about Snagit 2.

Sincerely,
Mike Curtis

Hi Mike,

I purchased Snagit and went through all the tutorials. I still think I need more assistance in making a collage (hope the image I inserted can be seen). My question is, how can you cut out an image (such as the skirts) so that it is cut perfectly. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi, I'd love to try and help!
Thanks for including the sample image. I went ahead and used it and made you a video showing how I would separate the skirts and put them on a transparent background. Once they are on their own transparent background you can make the collage or use them in a number of ways.

I hope this method will work for your needs. Please let me know.
Here's that "how-to" video! http://screencast.com/t/SSefmVDFkKm
One part I left out is that when saving the images, I recommend saving in PNG format. This format supports transparency.

Thanks for posting--it looks like you are working on a neat project!

Sincerely,
Mike Curtis
