Hi All,

First of all, I wish to make it clear to the site mods that I am not trying to use this as a way of advertising, I just need some help making an advert for my business and in doing so, I need to briefly explain what I do so apologies in advance if it is not allowed.

Basically, I want to put up an advert with price list of the "things" that I make.
There are about 35 colour options available but the forum I advertise on only allows 20 attatchments per advert.
Somebody suggested to me that a way around this is to merge them all into one picture and add that to the advert instead.
How do I do this please?

Currently, I post a link to an online album in photobucket but I would prefer to have them all available to see on the one advert so people don't have to mess around jumping from one website to the next.

I have a sample of each colour in a folder on the desktop of my lappy but each time I go into paint and try to add them all to the same document, they get merged, cover each other up and look tiny when I Upload them.

Can anyone help me please?

As you can tell, I'm not very Hi-tech or PC literate so any instructions need to be pretty much as you would explain to a child, lol.

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Volly

I "think" I know what you mean.

I'm guessing that all the "items" are the same, therefore the only variant is the colour.

As you need approximately twice as many pictures as you can load, and putting lots of items onto one frame just looks wrong can you perhaps do a half and half on each picture ?

On your main picture choose your most popular or eye catching colour, then for the rest, on drop down, do half the picture (left side of item) in one colour and the other half in another option (right side). A quick explanation to cover yourself for the terminally stupid (who thought the VW Halequin was a single colour option not a selection of all of them, and bought it smile ) and you should be okay.


I just KNOW that someone on here has the Harlequin and I'm going to get grief for my comment laugh

You might find it easier with something other than paint, paint.net is free.
Just create a background layer then insert the other image's as layer's,then you can reposition and resize or hide any other layer.
Here's a link to create a collage with paint.net http://www.isimonbrown.co.uk/pdn-collage/ which is basically what you want. When your done click save as then save the image as a .jpg.
