How do you create a split picture?
This thread has been closed and archived.
This discussion is public.
When browsing around, I've noticed that some people have a sort of split picture as a thumbnail for their items, where one half is a full length shot of the item and the other half features a closeup.
I rather like this style of picture, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do this.

you can use free software like www.picnik.com to make collages of your photos, like the last photo in this listing
from my other shop.

Thanks HepCatClothes for asking the question it's something I've been trying to do.
Thanks also to CraftMadness I've just started to use picnik to improve my pictures but was not aware that I could make collages, I guess I've still got a lot to learn.
Happy New Year to you all

My Mac has a program called ImageBrowser that I always use along with the snapshot function on the Mac plus PhotoBucket is FREE :o) They allow you to play with your pictures like crazy too! Then I just snapshot what I did there to save to my desktop and piece them together as a collage. It takes a LOT of time to do all this stuff but good pics helps your sell, sell, sell (so I've heard)... :o)

Thanks CraftMadness and MinceCo for the info. I'll give both of those a try and see which is easiest for me. I sell clothes, and I'm always torn between using a thumbnail with a closeup to show off interesting prints on the fabric or doing a full length to show off the style of the garment. I'm hoping using a split photo will give me the best of both worlds. :-)
