How to compile photo collages for your claims

A few readers have written to me asking how they could compile their photos for the purpose of applying for our subsidies. I directed them to picmonkey.com but they reverted saying they don’t know how to use it.

So, here’s a tutorial:

Step 1: Log on to www.picmonkey.com. Click on Collage. You will be directed to select some photos from your folders. Click on the photos you wish to select.

Step 2: Click on the collage icon on the left. Notice the photos you have selected will have already appeared in the left frame.

Step 11: Now, practise using it and have fun.

Step 12: The next time you apply for our subsidy, we would appreciate it very much if you would be so kind as to compile your photos into a collage and send it to us instead of sending us individual (and often, unlabeled) photos which I would then have to compile and I do have to process many applications in a day.

Your cooperation is most appreciated.

Thank you!
