Fantastic Finnish Photography



RapidStudio is proud to announce our photographic ambassador, Natalie Field, has been invited to Finland to attend the prestigious Arteles Creative Center. We are so happy that her hard work and outstanding talent have been recognised, but there’s a teensy weensy hitch.

Natalie needs help to get to there.

We are supporting Natalie through a crowdfunding project at Indiegogo.com and are putting the word out into the photographic community to ask for your help too. Crowdfunding is an amazing way to connect like-minded people from across the world in an online community of support to raise funds for a common purpose. What’s more, Natalie will be giving special perks like postcards, photo books and folios to generous backers. Looking for an exclusive coffee table book from a professional photographer? This is your chance to discover the profound beauty of Natalie’s photography.

Earlier this year, Natalie had an experience that shook her world and made her question the fleeting nature of our lives. From that experience she has drawn creative strength and is determined to make this pilgrimage to Finland.




The Arteles Creative Centre is hosting the artists’ retreat this October. Qualifying artists of all professions stay in the remote forested area of Haukijärvi in Western Finland. Jaw dropping panoramas, crystal lakes and intimate woodland scenes abound, providing a rich setting for artistic development. This tranquil habitat is an ideal environment for her photographic study of conceptual self-portraits entitled Human. Nature.



Natalie is exploring the evolution of humanity and our natural place in the eco-system. At this time in human history we have become so detached from the environment and similarly from our individual humanity and community. Through her art, Natalie touches our soul deeply and confronts our idea of self, and our place in the world, with a poetic understanding well beyond her years.

Join with us at RapidStudio and chip in to support Natalie Field’s creative career.

Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …
