At some point you may find the need to place two or more photos side by side into one picture. This can obviously be accomplished with products such as Adobe Photoshop or any of the other popular photo editing software. Unfortunately these programs generally cost money and have a large learning curve.
Lucky for the rest of us there’s an easy way to accomplish this using Google’s Picasa for free and in just four simple steps.
1. If you don’t already have it download and install Picasa.
2. After the install Picasa should start to populate your photos. Find the photos you would like to place side by side and select both of them by holding down the Ctrl key
3. Under the “Create” menu item choose “Picture Collage”
4. On the settings tab Choose Grid at the top. Here you can also adjust the spacing between the pictures and the final size.
That’s all it takes. You should now have a nice looking side by side photo like the one above. It’s definitely worth taking the time to look at the rest of the features in both the collage tool and the rest of Picasa.
