3) Now make the necessary adjustments on the setting field.

Setting field of Shape Collage contains three tabs:

    a) Shape and Size tab
Shape: This decides the shape of each individual images like- Rectangle, Heart, Circle, Text, or cutom brush styles.
Size: Defines the size of collage and photos. This can be either automatic or manual.
Photo Spacing: Changes the spacing between images.

    b) Appearance tab
Background: You can set backgound among solid background, transparent or any photo.
Border: Sets the colour and size of the border.

    c) Advanced tab
Rotation: Set the level of randomness, average angle, maximum angle of images.
Shadow: You can simply set the x offset and y offset of the shadow or just to none if you dont want and shadow after the border of images.

4) After all the necessary settings done. Click on the "Preview" button to see the layout of the collage.

5) You can preview the collage again to see any other randomized layout, and when you feel satisfied and the collage looks appropriate "create" the collage and save it in JPEG, PNG and even PSD (photoshop) mode. PSD files can be edited in photoshop.

This may save much of your time working with photoshop or other sophisticated image editors.
In photoshop think of
☻☺● How many layers you have to work when the number of images increase?
☻☺● How about the effects: border, stroke, bevel & emboss, drop shadow etc.?
☻☺● How would you decide the size of each image?
☻☺● Which image will be on the top and which one on the bottom(hmm hard too)?



However there is no software to withstand photoshop. But Shape collage is aimed to save time giving the professional like collage.
So what do you feel about it? Do share how do you make your collages?
