Editors' Review

+

Shape Collage sets itself apart from the competition thanks to its lack of cute add-ons, and thanks to professional results. Users may never look back because this program is easy to use and looks so good.

At first glance, the program's interface is slightly confusing, with a lot of white space and few command buttons. The biggest hurdle is that there is no guidance on how to download photos and make a collage. However, with a glance at the Help file and some random toying around, we felt instantly at home here. Most photo collage programs we've tested prior to Shape Collage only allowed for hazy collections of shots or, worse, childish graphics and clip art. This program, however, skips all those trappings and focuses on making a tight collage that mimics a collection of snapshots spread across the table. Users bank the shots they want to use, choose the rough shape of the collage and how tightly the pictures should be bundled, and instantly create a crisp collection of their favorite shots. Another highlight was that the program saves the collage as a JPEG. The program offers many features that help customize the collage. From simple menus aimed at adjusting the angle of shots, color of border, and size of photos, users have complete control.

With professional results and a lot of power, users should have no problem overcoming the initially confusing setup of this fantastic freeware download to create memorable picture collections.

"Intuitive, easy, elegant, fast"

March 08, 2009  |  By davidOdavid

 |  Version: Shape Collage 2.1

Pros

It is simple and intuitive to use. The results have a professional look. The program is tiny (<0.5MB)

Cons

No real cons. A chance to change individual picture sizes once added would add flexibility.

Summary

If you want to print multiple images on one sheet of paper, Shape Collage allows you to do so with flair. The interface is simple. Just drag pictures onto the photo pane and the program does the rest, creating an elegant collage. You can adjust the settings to get the effects you want. Nice work, Vincent
