Hi Cindy, as 12×12 collages are square, you need the ratio to be 50:50. This will work for all square collage layouts. For everything else, watch the dimensions as you change the Proportion Slider (down the bottom right next to Zoom) and adjust them to 1024×1024.

I don’t understand…. an 18 x 24 = 43:57 but…24×36 -= 40:60. The 18 is bigger than the 24, how can this be. The same with the smaller sizes also.

Hi Teresa, The reason for this is that changing the Proportions Slider doesn’t change the size of the collage, it only changes the ratio of width to height. So although one may seem larger than the other, in fact it is just about finding a ratio which most closely fits the collage’s width to height ratio.

In this case 18 / 24 = 0.75 and 43 / 57 = 0.754… which is the closest match available.

I am trying to make a wedding collage for my niece and I’m not sure what to put in for the size. I want the finished photo to be 16×20. I entered 43:57 (I know that is for 18×24 but…) when it came up on my screen it was a teeny tiny black rectangle. Do I need to enter my dimensions in another way. It would be nice if you could just pick your sizes rather than have to figure out these numbers to enter to hopefully end with a usable picture. Can you tell me how to have a blank canvas that I can drop pics onto that would end up being 16X20.

Hi Teresa, It definitely would be nice to be able to pick your sizes for both Collage proportions and Blank Canvas dimensions, and this feature will be introduced to Ribbet soon. As of right now, for a 16×20 blank canvas, use the dimensions 2400×3000. This is a perfect match for a 16×20″ collage at 150DPI (the proportions slider within Collage on the other hand can be less precise when trying to approximate dimensions, and being able to pick your size from a dropdown will resolve this).

Hi Ashley! We now have a Snap dropdown when creating a collage where you can select either 11×17″ or 17×11″. The collage will then be of the correct proportions for the calendar.

Erm, I’m trying to make a 8.5 by 4.5? Could you please tell me what I should use?

Hi Courtney, We don’t currently have a preset for 8.5 x 4.5, but if you adjust the Proportions slider while watching the dimensions in the Zoom box down the bottom right, you need to get them as close to 1024×542 as possible (or 2400×1271 for High quality collages).

What should be put into the proportion slider when I need 2.5 x 3.5 (poker size card size)

Hi Ashley!

For a 2.5 x 3.5 collage, simply select 5 x 7 from the Constraints dropdown (to the left of the collage). This will be the exact same proportions as 2.5 x 3.5 and will give you the result you need.

Let us know if you have any other questions!
