Collage Creator - App for Your Mac

I've been exploring the FREE apps in the Mac App Store the last few days.  I ran across an app, Collage Creator,  that could be useful.  It is certainly fun and easy to use. 

You add photos to the collage window by selecting the Pictures tab and then clicking on the + sign.  This allows you to add photos by opening files on your Mac by using a file selection browser type window. Or you can merely place them in the picture panel on the left-hand side  by using the drag and drop method.  They appear in the collage window on the right-hand side.

You can move them around in the panel by clicking and dragging.  You can  resize or change the angle of orientation using the curved arrow button.  You can position them in front or behind other photos by clicking on Move Up and Move Down buttons.  There are built in buttons to Shuffle and Re-mix the photos that you have in the collage window.  You can also go to Settings Tab to bring up options for setting another photo as a background or using a transparent background.  You can set the Border Width and Color for the photos and add Shadows for those borders.  The layout can be Portrait or Landscape and can vary in size.  There are options for the type of collage arrangement using Grid, Mosaic, Pile or Center Frame modes.




Overall, I give this app a 5 Star Rating and suggest that you check it out for an easy way to create collages of your photos.

An app I made that you might find interesting is called PhotoTangler ( http://www.solideightstudios.com/products/phototangler/iphone/ ), which offers a fun, unique solution for blending images together into collages.

I'd love to hear what people think and any feedback to make it the best app for creating captions & collages. Apart, we have also launched a new website http://photostocanvasprints.net/ with some new patterns, shadows and new effects.
