Is there a way of making a collage of photos with iPhoto using photos in my iPhoto library? The Card or Book approaches are awkward, lack flexibility for what I would like to achieve and don't yield a nice printable result.

    Not with iPhoto. It will take a 3rd party application to do what you want. Some are Pages (iWork); PhotoTiles; OmniGraffleand Posterino. Mosaics make from many other pictures can be done with MacOSaiX and MozoDomo.

    Omnigraffle(up to 10 photos in the demo mode) and Pages are very easy to use. I created this 96 photo collage (20x30) with Omnigraffle.

    Perfect, someone has already asked my question!

    I have Pages so is there anything special I do to create the collage or do I just "Insert and Resize" like MS office; which is very tedious. I looked at all the templates and the closest thing I found was a template for posters which just isn't quite what I am looking for.

    I would like to be able to use standard photo stock sizes for framing.

    Also, are there any Freeware or Shareware programs that can do this that any are aware of?

    No there’s nothing special, just the tedious.

    You mean, apart from the ones mentioned in Old Toad’s post above?

    Thanks again Terence,

    I just assumed they were demo versions with limitations.

    Cheers,
