I'm trying to put a bunch of photographs together as a collage. As I do
so, I want to be able to resize and reposition each one repeatedly
until I'm happy with the overall layout. So far what I'm doing is
pasting each image into a new layer, however, this isn't very
satisfactory because the layers are all the full size of the image, so
when I resize them, I can't really see what the effect will be on the
image itself. Similarly, repositioning the layer is a rather hit and
miss way of repositioning the image that it contains.
What should I be doing?
Make it the size you like (or can).
Do not be afraid to make it bigger - you'll have more freedom to move
pics. After you're satisfied with the result Image>Fit canvas to layers.
