12 Most Downloaded Construction Collages

posted on 6th of july, 2010

People are always builders. We like to create, invent, make things better, more beautiful and more comfortable. We like to build things up, to tear them down, and build them up again. No wonder images about builders and construction sites and tools are often searched buy designers and advertising agencies. They are pretty strong conceptual images as well. Good to depict the advancement in business, education, life...
Here is a collection of 12 most downloaded construction collages.

You have a great portfolio, Jennifer! It just needs more time and exposure. Check out those keywords, which buyers have used uploading your photos, it might give some more inspiration. Check out add pages on magazines, newspapers, when traveling around look at billboards and posters. You will get lots of inspiration. :)) Thanks for your comment!

Nice ones, Maigi. I make a lot of simple collages for family so I won't have to print out so many single images for them ;))

Great selection Maigi! I've been trying for a while but it's much harder to do than it seems! Apart from the borders (thanks for explaining below), it's hard to find complementary images, with an exposure or colours that work well together.

I notice that on some collages, some images have a line in the middle to keep the symmetry. Although it does look nice as a collage, does it not defeat a bit the purpose? What's your opinion about that?

Also I always wonder what kind of size to use for the overall collage, whether to reduce the size of the individual pictures or not, as it has an impact on the usage of the photo but also the downloading price. Any advice?

Dear Maen and Maigi!
Thank you very much for advice! So simple and it never came in my mind =)))
Posted by Maigi on July 07, 2010
Thanks for all your comments! :)
Julia, you can draw border lines on separate layer and then fit photos into frames on lower layer. Have fun!
PS: Okay, now I noticed that Maen already recommended that. Good advice. :)

Julia they are not necessary separated! Pass the line shapes over! ;)
Posted by Julia161 on July 06, 2010
Great collages. Thanks for sharing!

And a question:
How do people make them? I tried several times in Photoshop, but don't understand how to keep distance between parts equal. Is there any way to do it easily? Thank you very much for help in advance ;)
Posted by Mani33 on July 06, 2010
Those are great Maigi! No wonder they are the most downloaded!
I gave it a try on some patterns college but still waiting for a buyer :)))
Thanks for sharing ;)

There are several pros and cons with collages, but when wisely select images to composition, then some topics are worth to try.

Great images Maigi! I've been looking at collages for a while and it seems that a well constructed collage on any subject seems to sell well. They look great too :)
Posted by Py2000 on July 06, 2010
