    Collaging Photos into one overall photo

    Im currently trying to create a photo for a university project that is a collage.
    What im trying to do is to combine all the photos from a outdoor trip and make this into one
    larger photo, I will post below some examples of what im aiming to achieve.
    What my question is though, How i would i best go at achieving this ?
    I have Photoshop CS5, or is there a stand alone program that would help me achieve this
    solution, If it is within photoshop what would you believe would be the easiest way at going about
    it ?

    (Imparticular i have a photo of a canoe i want to be the main photo with all the other being inside but making up that photo)


    *removed- you can post a link to, but not the actual photo, as you do not own copyright to it!*

    Thanks,

    They are called photo mosaics and if you google photo mosaic software you will find some that lets you do it. Generally you have the original photo (the canoe) and then a folder of photos you want the software to use to build it, and away it goes.

    I did one by using MS Publisher. Put all your photos where you want, bring them forward, send back etc and then you can save the finished result as a JPEG.

    I think this was first "invented" by a young programmer (16 or so). Just in case you were interested.
