Most photo collage apps work the same way. Dump in a bunch of photos to a multi-sized grid of boxes. Adjust photos as needed. Save, print, or share online. My photography experience doesn’t date back to the early 1900s, but I’m pretty sure there’s not much new under the sun with photos collages.
Then, there’s PhotosCollage (every photo collage app must have the words ‘photo’ and ‘collage’– it’s a standard), the Mac photo collage app that dares to think different (the iOS version is called Photo Collage. See? That’s thinking different.
What PhotosCollage does different is called justified collages which blends photos horizontally, vertically, or squarely. Controls let you blend photos and justify photos to get just the right collage effect.
It all starts with the time honored drag and drop routine. Drag a bunch of photos onto the photo browser, then move them around to fit your visual tastes.
Photos to be blended use a blending gradient tool which can be used in multiple directions. Yes, blend horizontally, then blend vertically for a different effect called an array. The square blends can handle 4, 9, or 16 photos at a time (though a collage layout is basically unlimited).
PhotosCollage takes a little work to get used to because it doesn’t work or behave exactly the way a typical photo collage app works, Mac, iPad, or iPhone. The photo justification and bleedings work well and give you a different look than traditional collages. PhotosCollar is different, that’s for sure. It’s priced different, too.
