Picture Collage Maker is a full-featured image editor that helps you create professional-looking collages. The application lets you design beautiful photo albums, greeting cards, calendars, scrapbooks, posters, magazines, disk covers, and any type of projects based on image processing.
The program's interface is elegant and attractive. The preview panel takes the most part of the main window, so that you can have a clear display of the templates provided as well as of the adjustments applied to the imported images. The utility embeds a wide array of templates, conveniently organized into clearly defined categories. Once you select a specific category, you have the chance to browse its content and select the pattern that fits your needs. The thumbnail-like view of collage presets and the ability to zoom them in will help you in making the right choice.
Once the desired template is selected, the next logical step is to import the photos that will stand for the content of your project. Then, you just need to explore the wide range of editing features provided by the application and make the proper adjustments to your project. Therefore, you have the ability to resize pictures, change their inclination angle, and crop images so that they can fit perfectly into the frames. In addition, you can fine-tune the image appearance by adding shadows and special effects to it. Furthermore, you are empowered with controlling the blur and the opacity levels of the picture you are working on. You can round the corners of photos, as well as decorate them with nicely-looking borders. Besides, an extensive collection of frames and masks waits to be discovered. What is more, the program comes with a great number of comic and cartoon-like images, meant to cause amusement and joy. Differently-shaped objects are also provided – you can use them with confidence whenever you intend to draw attention to some elements in the picture. You are able to overlay text messages, which will give a personal touch to your creation. The text is highly customizable in terms of font, color, alignment, and opacity. You can apply text-related effects – like stroke, glow, fill, and outline –, which will make the written message look special. A calendar pattern is right there at hand, so that you can create personalized photo calendars in no time.
Whether completed or not, you will be able to save your creation as a personal template, in order to resume your work later when you feel more inspired to use it as the basis for other projects. Once the photo collage is finished, you can save it in common image formats or as a PDF file. In addition, you can set it as wallpaper, send it to iPhoto, and share it to popular social networks or via e-mail, directly from within the program.
Picture Collage Maker goes well beyond the average image-editing program. All elements involved in the creation of the collage are fully customizable. With comprehensive editing options and a clear approach, the application lets you unleash your creativity and artistic skills in order to design exquisite and original photo-based creations.
