I have new found love for natural light during the day. Isn't it pretty? I don't have to do much with lighting.

I had to spend ~2 hrs to do a collage. And I still wasn't quite happy cos it's not exactly how I want, like cropping each image in big collage crops the whole thing instead. So I gotta figure out how to crop the layers or marquee select and cut and paste in a new layer? but it's too late and gotta sleep.
CoffeeShop has lots of free storyboard actions here.
I don't think it's that easy to use if I just want a simple collage. Or maybe I just need to look carefully into her instructions.
