How do I use AutoCollage directly on my canvas?

On the Images hover, select the images you want to use.

Click on the AutoCollage button – this will autocollage your images onto your canvas.

To reshuffle the arrangement, click on the AutoCollage button on the toolbar. Keep clicking the Autocollage button until you find a layout that you like.

Once images have been used in an AutoCollage, they will be grouped in a single region frame.

Just like a single image frame, the AutoCollage Frame can be resized and rotated by dragging on the blue frame handles.
All frames inside the AutoCollage frame will proportionally resize.

By default the AutoCollage Frame is locked – you can unlock the frames via the Quick Menu options.  This will allow you to select and resize images directly in the region.  (NOTE: the AutoCollage Frame can also be unlocked by double clicking directly on the frame itself.)

The Quick Menu also allows you to removed all frames from the region, or remove just the images (which will reside in the dropper, available for redropping.)

Modify the Creative Effects and Sorting Options for all of the images inside the AutoCollage region via the Gear tool. Click on the Go! button to apply the new settings.

To add a new image to your AutoCollage region, drag and drop an image into the region until the entire region is highlighted in blue. The images will re-autocollage to accommodate the new image.  Be sure to “drop” the new image in between two frames to select the region, and not simply swap out an image.

To replace an image within the AutoCollage, drag and drop one image on top of another.  The selected frame will be highlighted in blue.

To swap two images with the region, click on the image frame number you want to pick up, then drag the image to the desired image frame until it is highlighted. Drop the image into the frame, and the images will swap position.

 You can quickly modify the look of all frames, by selecting the AutoCollage Frame and modifying the elements as if it was a single image.
