    Is there a montage package in adobe. What is the easiest way to do montages?

      I would like to do professional montages the easiest way. Is there a package in adobe that I can use with my photoshop.  I use to do them on old photoshop 5, was able to have my photos and format on the same page and just move them. But its not working on cs6.

      What would be the easiest way? Bridge? Photoshop? Elements?

          Elements has some sort of collage facility.  I created a Photoshop Photo Collage Toolkit I find easy to use but then I programmed it.

           

          Photo Collage Toolkit  UPDATED April 30, 2013 Added border option to PasteImageRoll.

          Photoshop scripting is powerful and I believe this package demonstrates this.

          The package includes four simple rules to follow when making Photo Collage Template PSD files so they will be compatible with my Photoshop scripts.

          There are eleven scripts in this package they provide the following functions:

          1. TestCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to test a Photo Collage Template while you are making it with Photoshop.
          2. CollageTemplateBuilder.jsx - Can build Templates compatible with this toolkit's scripts.
          3. LayerToAlphaChan.jsx - Used to convert a Prototype Image Layer stack into a template document.
          4. InteractivePopulateCollage.jsx - Used to interactively populate Any Photo Collage template. Offers most user control inserting pictures and text.
          5. ReplaceCollageImage.jsx - use to replace a populated collage image Smart Object layer with an other image correctly resized and positioned.
          6. ChangeTextSize.jsx - This script can be used to change Image stamps text size when the size used by the populating did not work well.
          7. PopulateCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to Automatically populate a Photo Collage template and leave the populated copy open in Photoshop.
          8. BatchOneImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Collage templates that only have one image inserted. The Collage or Image may be stamped with text.
          9. BatchMultiImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Any Photo Collage template with images in a source image folder. Easier to use than the interactive script. Saved collages can be tweaked.
          10. BatchPicturePackage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Any Photo Collage template with an image in a source image folder
          11. PasteImageRoll.jsx - Paste Images into a document to be print on roll paper.
