Once you have clicked on the Create button, give Shape Collage a few seconds and it will create your photo collage. You can also create a photo collage from a hand drawn shape, and also edit the collage in a image editing software like Photoshop, with each photo in its own layer.

    I could definitely lose a lot of time playing with this :) Would be neat to use for gift ideas or other things though!

    The only important thing left out is that with the free version you get their logo across the picture and it’s not editable. You have to upgrade to the pro (paid) version to get rid of the logo and to be able to edit it. Other wise great program.
