@CrossCreations: Actually, was thinking about that. Well, both using it to make money and hiring someone for laundry.

Carolan Ross (author) from St. Louis, MO on September 11, 2013:

@anonymous: You will find ways to use these collages to make money online in your websites. Can't help ya with laundry though... until you earn enough to hire someone to do laundry FOR you. *wink*

@aishu19: Try it, Aishu, you might be amazed at how simple it is. Start collecting the images you want to use in a separate file. Honestly that takes longer than actually using a collage maker online. It's a BLAST!

aishu19 on September 11, 2013:

I have always wanted to make cool collages with the family pictures. These online collage makers might help me get them done

Carolan Ross (author) from St. Louis, MO on February 27, 2013:

@greenspirit: Well yes there are a lot of choices here, best to just choose ONE of the sites to create a photo collage free online. Then after you've created a couple photo collage projects, you might then want to see what other sites have to offer.

@grannysage: SO funny that people hide their magazines when they see you coming! Every now & then when I just have to put some of mine in the recycle bin, I pull many pages out and keep them in files for when I'm ready to collage, even have picture files sorted by topic.

grannysage on December 26, 2012:

I am the queen of collage making. People hide their magazines when they see me coming. Looks like something fun to get addicted to. Bookmarking to come back later to browse.
