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.
