Make a Photo Collage in Any Custom Size
If you can't find a standard size that fits your requirement, you can create a collage in a custom size.
You can define a custom collage size by specifying the width and height in pixels/inches/mm/cm. You can also set a resolution for your collage in pixels per inch.
There is an upper limit of 24000 X 24000 pixels on custom sizes in TurboCollage. This limit should not worry you because it is big enough to accommodate almost all scenarios.
Steps to using a custom size:
This section will provide detailed steps to use a custom size for your collage.
Here's a video demonstrating these steps:
1. Open TurboCollage and select a size from the Size drop-down. If you can't find the size you need, use the "Set Custom Size" control.
2. Set width and height in pixels, inches, mm, or cm. Set resolution in pixels/inch and a name (optional) for your custom size. Click Set.
We recommend using a resolution of 300 pixels/inch since this is the most commonly used resolution for high-quality prints.
3. Design your collage and export it to a JPEG. The exported JPEG will be the size and resolution that you used.
Here're some tutorials to learn more about designing collages.
