Editors' review

It's so easy to take pictures and store them on your PC that you could quickly end up with the digital equivalent of the old shoebox stuffed with photos. You keep meaning to organize them into displays or albums, but it just never happens and eventually you aren't even sure who some of the people are or why you took the photos. Thankfully, Picture Collage Maker Pro offers a simple way to help you organize your photos into customized albums, calendars, special occasion cards, and more.

As soon as Picture Collage Maker Pro is installed, you're directed to a video tutorial on the publisher's site that covers the basics of creating a collage. There are several other videos to show you how to make specific items like a calendar or card. The process is simple enough, but the guides will lessen the learning curve. The initial interface offers four easy-to-understand choices: one to create a collage from scratch and three that will give you help along the way, including Create From Template and Template Collage Wizard. If you're new to the process, we suggest you start with a template and use the wizard. We started with a calendar template, which required us to simply choose the photos we wanted to include. Picture Collage Maker Pro does all the rest, inserting your selected photos into the template. You have the option to shuffle pictures and you can move the preset items easily with your mouse, but you can also opt to save the collages without making any changes. As you learn more about the program, you'll find that it's also easy to create your own items.

You don't need any special design or digital image expertise to use Picture Collage Maker Pro. The trial version adds a watermark to your final product and you're only allowed a 15-day trial period, but considering how easy it is to use the program that should be more than enough for you to see if this app is right for you.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Picture Collage Maker Pro 3.3.9.

    "Crippled by watermarking"

    October 04, 2011   |   By Drymartini

    Version: Picture Collage Maker Pro 3.1.4 build 3534

    Pros

    Could be downloaded free

    Cons

    Every collage was prominently watermarked

    Summary

    Where I read about Picture Collage Maker it was said to be a free download. It was described as fully functional. Downloading a free program with basic features is okay with me. Then the publisher can offer me a version with more features. This download was crippled for my purposes in that every collage was prominently watermarked. I was to pay $60 to get the watermarks to go away. I did not use it any further. A time-limited starter version is one thing, and so is a limited number of uses, so long as the work I do with the program is usable. But a deliberately crippled product is just a tease. I downloaded another product frankly marketed at $20, and it performs as described, with no Gotcha factor.

    "This is a super good collage software"

    May 04, 2011   |   By SilverPet

    Version: Picture Collage Maker Pro 2.5.7 build 3314

    Pros

    Simple interface, plenty of templates, easy to customize, easy to load picture and create a collage and export them in a jiffy in any prefered format.

    Cons

    Wondering why so many thumbs down, though.

    Summary

    Thanks Pearl Mountain.
