Time-Saving Photo Blogging Tool – BlogStomp
What is it? BlogStomp is a powerful blogging tool that allows you to create photo collages and instantly resize images for social media.
Why I love it: Until JPEGmini came into my life, I used BlogStomp to resize my images for social media use. Now, I primarily use BlogStomp to create image collages. Their easy to use drag-and-drop feature allows you to select multiple photos for an image collage and set parameters for image dimensions and quality. The software will automatically create several different layouts for your collage based upon those parameters, and you can easily shuffle photos around. I cannot believe I used to do this manually, using countless layer masks in Photoshop!
