Creative Break—Collage Machine

Here’s another fun site from the National Gallery of Art: Collage Machine.

It allows you to position various shapes and images, then manipulate each item’s transparency, size and rotation. Or let the “Auto” button produce collages to give you ideas or as a starting point for your own creations.

Have fun, be playful and enjoy!

    Aw, heck. I spent 30 minutes or so making a collage I actually liked. It was busy, but was meant to illustrate the “noise” in my brain. It was cool, but my computer idiocy comes back to bite me in the ass, because I can’t get past the error messages when I try to capture it, print it, etc. Oh well, thanks for the fun, at any rate. And I’ve bookmarked the supercool NGA website. If Moochie doesn’t play around there, I certainly will.

    Yeah, Carolyn, that was intense, but really absorbing. I love a lot of the little animations and used to spend hours trying to achieve similar stop-motion effects with my old Super 8 camera.

    Kablooey, it’s kind of complicated to save these things. The NGA website has instructions here:

    Sorry you lost your masterpiece! But at least you created it, which is the most important thing, right?
