Picture Collage Maker
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
If a picture is worth a thousand words, many pictures together tell a whole story. Instead of uploading 200 snapshots of your recent vacation or event, why not create a collage of your best photos? This not only drastically shortens the amount of time you’ll spend uploading and captioning photos, but it also allows you to tap into your artsy side and create something beautiful.
Picture Collage Maker, developed by PearlMountain Technology Co., Ltd, truly simplifies the creative process without sacrificing quality. If photos are your thing, you definitely can’t afford to pass this great app up!
Concept and Functionality:
Picture Collage Maker focuses on the idea of taking your photos and doing more with them by allowing you to tell your story creatively. Thanks to a great design and layout, the app is incredibly easy to use and you’ll be creating collages in no time at all.
To get started, you’ll need to choose whether you want to work on a project from scratch or use one of the many great templates that are readily available. I was very impressed with the variety of pre-made templates and happy to see that there’s something for everyone and almost every occasion. Plus you’re free to edit pretty much everything on the template, including clip art and text.
Once you’re finished creating your masterpiece, Picture Collage Maker allows you to export your collage to a wide variety of social media networks. Naturally you have the usual Facebook and Twitter option, but the app also allows you to send your collage to Tumblr and Flickr, as well. The best part? Picture Collage Maker lets you do this simultaneously, making the process of uploading to multiple networks darn near effortless.
One of the things that drives me nuts is having to use multiple apps to achieve a single goal. There’s nothing more frustrating than having to switch back and forth between apps when you’re immersed in the creative process. That’s why Picture Collage Makers’s built-in photo editor is an absolute blessing. You won’t find an abundance of filters and effects here, though. Instead, barebones adjustments like brightness and contrast help to give your photos a bit of TLC.
Another feature worth mentioning will definitely appeal to the meme fans out there. Picture Collage Maker also allows you to turn your cat’s awkward sleeping pose into the next great meme. While this might seem like a strange feature to elaborate on, it hearkens back to my aforementioned frustration regarding single purposed apps. Picture Collage Maker really has every detail covered, making it a well-rounded photography app.
Picture Collage Maker is currently available for free, but that’s for a limited time only. I’m not sure when the price is due to increase, so I definitely recommend grabbing this amazing photo app ASAP before the promotion ends. There is even a free Mac version you can find here.
Picture Collage Maker is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
