How to create Collage Effect in Adobe Illustrator?


Collage Effect in Adobe Illustrator

With the help of Clipping Mask and Rectangle Tool, we will be creating Collage Effect in today’s tutorial. But first we will require a good quality image to create the Collage Effect in Adobe Illustrator.

You can either use your own image or search on any website for a image.

Launch Adobe Illustrator and create a new document of size 1000 pt X 1000 pt.

Now follow the given steps:

Step 1

After creating the document we will place the image on the artboard. Click on File in the Menu Bar and select Place.

 When you will select Place, a window will appear. From that window you can browse the image. Select the image which you want to place and then put checkmark on Link and click on Place.

Click anywhere in the document area and your image will be placed. You can crop the image and also resize it.

Select the image and align it at the center of the artboard by selecting Horizontal Align Center and Vertical Align Center in the Align Panel. But before that make sure that Align to Artboard is selected in the Align Panel.

Step 2

Now select the Rectangle Tool and draw some rectangles. Place those rectangles randomly, all over the image.

I have used different stroke color in each rectangle so that the rectangles are easily visible to you. It is not necessary for you to use different stroke color for each rectangle.

Step 3

As I have drawn eight rectangles on the image, so now I will create 7 more duplicate copies of the image and the rectangles.

With the help of Selection Tool and Shift key, select the image and the rectangles. Now press and hold Alt key and drag the selection to make a duplicate copy of it.

Step 4

Now with the help of Clipping Mask we will start creating our Collage Effect.

Select a rectangle and the image and press Ctrl + 7 to create a Clipping Mask.

Except the rectangles on the artboard, remove all of the other rectangles. The rectangles which are on the artboard will help us in placing the clipped rectangles on place.
