Picture Collage Maker is an advanced photo collage generator that allows you to turn your photos into elaborate collages, scrapbook, calendars and greetings cards. You can choose from a variety of template layouts or create your own design from scratch, apply image frames, masks, drop shadows and other effects. The images can be cropped and resized to fit, and freely arranged within the collage. The program supports drag and drop image placements, resizing and multiple layers of images and clipart decorations.
Because Picture Collage Maker has so much to offer, the program's interface is terribly cluttered. It takes some skill to navigate around the buttons and templates and require adequate time to get used to it. There is a huge collection of templates (over 160) for collages, greeting cards, invitations, and calendars which are displayed in small thumbnails. The smallness of the thumbnail makes it hard to appreciate how good or bad the result will look in full size. So you might want to experiment with different templates a bit before settling on one.
You can also choose to create a collage from scratch, or modify upon an existing template. Picture Collage Maker offers user enough flexibility for this. None of the templates are ‘hard-coded’ – all elements from backgrounds, icons, text etc. are available as layers which can be reorganized, edited, replaced or removed. All in all, Picture Collage Maker is a good collage maker you might want to check out.
