Am new to PSE and having trouble creating collage pages (11 X 8.5). Can get the random look ones OK but cannot get the geometric (vertical/horizontal) as an option in layout. Am doing an album of Africa trip as a Christmas gift so time is getting short Help please for this L plater.
The best thing is to just ignore the official collage. There is nothing you can do a in a collage in PSE 11 that you can't do easier and faster in the editor. Create a blank document the size and resolution you need, then get out the Graphics panel, add a background, add frames, photos, etc.
PSE doesn't give the option to choose layout in conventional way. You need to choose a different preset for creating a horizontal/vertical collage. Choose 11x8.5 to create a horizontal and 8.5x11 to create a vertical collage
I am no expert for creations, but I can see two entries for Photo collage which I think can be used for creating horizontal/vertical collage in the dimension 11x8.5. The 8.5x11 preset made me a vertical collage whereas 11x8.5 preset gave me a horizontal collage
