After you have inserted your photo and edited it, you can change the frame or just add a border. You can also resize and reposition the photo. Simply tap the photo and you will see the resize and rotate “handle” (blue circle with circular arrow). Drag your finger on this “handle” to adjust the size and position of your photo.
You can add more photos to your collage by clicking the photo icon at the bottom of the screen. The photos will appear on your project and can be adorned with frames or borders. You can also delete photos by tapping the delete button on the photo (the red circle with the minus sign). Deleted photos just go in the trash. When you click the trash can, the photo is placed back in the project.
Once the photo is set, you can adorn your collage with stickers, text, and even change the background. You can add these elements by clicking the buttons while the whole project is in focus. These additional objects can also be resized, positioned and rotated.
Once you’re done, click the share button on the top right corner of the project. From the sharing screen, you can pick the size of the collage and send it via social networking or email. Picture Collage Maker supports Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, and Instagram. You can post a collage to multiple social networks by turning them on and tapping the share button on the top right of the screen.
This is even better than the Instagram app, and can be used as a replacement, at least to send Instagrams. You can also save the finished collage to your camera roll, which is called “photo library”. If you want to print the card, simply email it to yourself and print it from your computer. Use photo quality paper for best results.
This app is well done, especially considering that it’s free. There’s some room for improvement, but these are minor issues. AirPrint support would be a great addition, so users can print directly from their iOS device. Also, the developers should go with Apple’s naming conventions. “Photo Library” should be called “camera roll”. It would also be nice if one could adjust the z-order of elements. Perhaps this is possible, but I was unable to do this. Support for Pinterest and G+ would also enable greater sharing capabilities. These are all minor points. With Picture Collage Maker, anyone can create a charming picture collage or even a greeting card. It’s also a great for photo editing. Even if you don’t want to make a collage, you can simply enhance a photo and add a caption.
