A good app, needs to be updated.

I reveied this app a few years ago & I wish it has made significant improvement, but it seems the same. There is so much this app could and should do, that they haven’t added. For example - let users set the angle of photos directly. It is remarkably difficult to make a given photo have 0 degrees of rotation!

Please update!

Here is my old review, from when I gave it 5 stars.
I tried several collage apps & this is the one I liked the best. I used the free version first (Collage Creator Lite) & really enjoyed it. This paid version seems to have some really great additional features. I hope they keep working on it an improving it.

Here are some suggestions:
- the biggest problem I have is that the Picture Pile template should have a setting that automatically covers up the entire background. I spend most of my time resizing & moving images to accomplish this - its hould be programmatic.
- Make your application window a real, resizable normal Mac window.
- Add the ability to star-rate (like in iTunes) the images & thus effect which get displayed more prominently & less prominently.

All in all, a great and useful app - thanks!

Quick and easy, but still lacking essential manual controls.

This is my go-to app for creating quick and elegant collages. It’s easy to chuck a selection of images into the pile and let Turbo Collage sort them instantaneously. The problems arise when you want to make manual adjustments to the frame sizes or when you add a new photo and your painstakingly designed layout is completely reorganised.

- easy to use
- offers some good manipulation of the border widths and colors
- presets are creative and look nice
- using textures for the background is easy as long as you have some reset textures to hand

- adding to or removing a picture from the pile will reset your layout
- can’t resize image frames - this would be particularly useful in the new circle pile setting
- no ability to adjust the image area, so if the "zig-zag" is not quite right, you have to just keep hitting "Shuffle" and hope for the best

Overall, definitely worth the small price and far easier than doing the same thing in Photoshop.

Awesome App

I rarely write reviews of Apps, but this one is INCREDIBLE! I have bought many collage programs as well as collage apps and spent more money on them all than I care to think about. Most end up in folders called “Collage - Do Not Use!"

I looked at this one and thought it was just another app that I would probably purchase and discard, but it is amazing!! I created a collage in three minutes after adding some pictures, changing pictures around, changing collage types and backgrounds, putting in my text box describing the event, and all this included learning how to use it! As Historian for a service club and having hundreds of pages to do to show what our Club has done throughout the year, I have been struggling because each page takes me hours, literally! I am now excited because I can catch up in a week this summer if I can do a whole collage in about three minutes!

This App is a gem among many broken rocks! Thank you to the developers who have made a truly outstanding App! I will look to see what other programs you have done!
