Photo montages are a great way to combine a range of your photos into one piece of artwork.
Send your favourite photos to be designed into an image which I can either send back to you as a digital file, or as a printed image with or without a frame of your choice. Prices vary based on complexity and services required.

Requesting your Montage

Use the Contact Form to place an order and discuss any additional requirements. Please give as much information as possible on what you'd like. I'll try my best to meet your needs.

I'll get back to you as soon as I can, within 24 hours.

PhotosProviding your photos

I can accept your photos whether they're prints or digital files. Please carefully check the Providing Your Images page.


USB Stick

Completing your request

When I've received your photos I'll start work on your montage straight away. When it's ready you'll receive a low resolution file as a jpg or Acrobat PDF of the finished montage for your approval. If you need any changes, I'll be happy to make them.

Completion times can vary but I aim for no more than 14 days.

External Hard Drive

Free CD or DVD Artwork

All finished artwork is also provided on a CD or DVD with any images you may have supplied at no extra cost. With this you can share and distribute digital versions of your montage with family and friends. You'll also easily be able to arrange to have your finished artwork printed again in the future.

Extra discs or USB sticks can be provided for a small additional fee.

Most email services have a limit as to how much you can send on one email, so I recommend that you don't send more than 5MB at a time. If you have lots of photos, internet based strorage may be a better option.

Internet based storage

Internet based storage

You can use a free photo or data hosting site such as Instagram, OneDrive, DropBox or Google Drive. Just let me know which photos and where.
Facebook

Facebook pages or other personal websites

Although I can occasionally use these, please note that any photos taken from websites such as Facebook will be of a much lower resolution compared to your original photos and may affect the quality of your final montage.



Providing Printed Photos

Guidelines for sending your printed photographs. 

  • I can accept photograph sizes up to A4.
  • As much as possible, make sure your photos are clean and free from dust, hairs, blue tack, adhesives etc as they will show up on the scanned images. Don't worry too much if your photos do have any of these though because I can often help clear them up.
  • If your photos come in packs or have different subjects or themes and you'd like them in separate named folders, please put a label on them so I can arrange this for you.
  • Place your photos in the order you'd like them to be scanned.
  • If using rubber bands please make sure they do not cause the photos to bend.
  • Place your photos in the order you'd like them to be scanned.
  • Carefully pack your photos in a suitable packet or box. If using a box, please fill any remaining space with bubble wrap, scrunched paper or something similar to reduce movement and reduce the chances of damaging your photographs.
  • Please try to avoid sending photographs in bags, frames or other formats that could be easily damaged.
  • If posting, I recommend using the Royal Mail's Special Delivery service.
  • Don't send photographs that you don't have copyright or permission for.
