Rose-Anne, glad to see you found your way here! :)

For the collage I used Picasa 3, which is a free software download from Google. It has a lot of other easy editing functions as well. Just write Picasa 3 in the Google search box and you'll find it.

To make a collage in Picasa, you really just have to choose the pictures and then click a button and the software does the job for you... However, it only provides a certain number of standard variations how to arrange the pictures. So sometimes it takes a bit of random experimenting to get a result you like.

If you google "free photo collage software" you'll find there are plenty of others to chose from too (which I haven't tried).

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
