cf/x collagePRO ... Need to quickly create a beautiful invitation, greeting card, 'thank you' note, event collage, poster or a personal Christmas gift? collagePRO is the right tool for you!

"Better", "Funner", "Beautifuler" - even though not all of these words exist, they have been used to describe collagePRO.

Successor to our top-rated hit app 'cf/x collage', this 'PRO' version adds more panache, subtracts some of the austerity - but retains all of the the lightning-fast auto-layout, ease of use and, most importantly, fun.

With its signature auto-layout feature, creating a collage requires nothing more more...

I just purchased the program and am unable to find any kind of directions. I can't even find the templates which are part of the program. Is there a tutorial or an online guide I can refer to? I have used a lot of photo programs so I'm not a newbie but I'm finding this program a bit less intuitive and am puzzled by the lack of support.

I've been using 'collage' (non-PRO) for quite a while now, and upgraded to PRO a few days ago.

Basically, what collage (both versions) have over most of the other collage layout apps is *Speed*. That's why I use it after a shoot or event - select 20 images, drop them on collage, and boom! Collage automatically creates a layout. No templates needed. I then use in-app zoom and pan for touch up - and I'm done. The layout is usually good enough to present directly, and it saves me a ton of time when antsy clients want to have a preview. PS can of course do the same, but that would take me hours for what I can do in literally seconds.

collage has one drawback, though - it's somewhat inflexible with its layout, and can sometimes be downright quirky when you edit it. And it does not allow overlapping images.

collagePRO is essentially the same, except that in is more relaxed with the layout (images can overlap, rotate), but it retains most of the layout quirkyness. The PRO version also has backgrounds (images, textures), different frame shapes (for those who need it - personally I prefer boringly rectangular frames) and a really, really nice paper format manager. To me, that manager, coupled with the auto-layout is the real killer function in the PRO version. I can create multiple exports (calendar, greeting card, web page) of the same basic layout instantly. The HTML export option is nice, but due to its heavy use of javascript can be slow for collages with lots of images.

One major knock, though: no text. Although some templates look as if they use text, they in reality use pictures of text, cleverly added as a background image. I create captions in Acorn, and import them as pictures. Annoying.

Other than that, though, I really like the app as a *very* fast collage creator. If you have the time, try both versions because not everyone needs (or wants) the PRO version's additional features, and you can always upgrade later.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback to collagePRO. We released version 2.0, which now provides a fully integrated tet layer, and other enhancements.

The update is free to all registered users.

... and I seem to be unable to correctly spell 'text layer'.

That is the most annoying thing about posting on MacUpdate, is not being able to correct any typos in review/comment. It's happened to me several times, and I'm a gud speler. ;-)
