Ok maybe you don’t blog. This is still for YOU. Do you watermark your images? Do you want or like to collage your images? This tool is for YOU!!
There is one tool I tell EVERYONE about that talks to me about blogging. What if you aren’t a photographer…you don’t have to be. What if you blog your family life, you still will want to post pictures, right? A food blog? Yep you’ll post pictures too. This tool will save you boat loads of time. Go buy it…no seriously believe me.
That one tool that I wish I had known about from day one is BLOGSTOMP. It’s not expensive, so don’t even let your mind go there. $49 and if you sign up for my email newsletter you’ll receive a promo code for 20% off = $39.20. or after this post if you still don’t believe me…download their free trial!
Lets face it blogstomp wasn’t even out when I started blogging…but I spent hours in photoshop trying to get several images collaged onto one image for my blog. It was such a time waster that I finally gave up, seeing I am not a Photoshop guru.
I gave up. I just forgot about even trying to collage images like the cool people.
One day. I learned of Blogstomp.
I IMMEDIATELY purchased it. I didn’t blink an eye, I didn’t care what it cost me…well I probably did, but you get y point.
I don’t really know how to sell you on blogstomp besides the fact that I’m a believer in it, I’ve taken the time to blog about it and they have extended YOU a 20% discount code.

Blogstomp has saved me more time than I can count. It’s the easiest tool and the BEST tool (in my opinion).
Here’s my sales pitch- and hey I’m not making a penny off of this…this is strictly to HELP you.
1- Open Blogstomp (simple, right? hang with me)
You will see this first image- not intimidating AT ALL
2- Drag your images over into the side bar . No you’ll see this!
3- Highlight/Select which images you want to collage into the one image. (you can do more than 5 images in one collage!!!!!). Now you will see them displayed on the right. Ta-dah! It’s not over though….carry onto 4.
If you only want one image, select it (#5 below explains more) and stomp it with your watermark on it. So this isn’t JUST for collages…this will put your watermark on it super easy, even for one image, plus re-size and get ready for your blog.
4- So you aren’t crazy about the first collage layout they give you. Bam hit the “MIX IT UP!” Button below the image. If you’re not crazy about the collage they give you initially on the side bar choose which you love and click on it.
You love the collage-now hit “STOMP IT!”
Now it’s saved to a “STOMPED” folder on your desktop.
5- A bit of the nitty gritty.
–You can add a white border or black border around your image/collage. You can choose the width of the border
–You can choose the image width. My blog is set up for my image width to be 1000. I set this in my blogstomp and it stomps my images to be ready for my blog IMMEDIATELY.
–Add your watermark. Put the file in blogstomp. It stays there. If you don’t like the same spot or decide you want to move the spot of your watermark. Click on the watermark on the image and drag it until you’ve found where you want it to stay.
–Keep the original file name or rename it, right in blogstomp
— Post directly to Twitter or a Facebook album
How much easier can it get? It doesn’t. Time is money. If you can save time you make more money!
Can you agree with me, this is super easy?
