I recently received a copy of the program CollageIt 3 to review and check out. When Carter turned one, I gathered up all 13 of my monthly pictures I had painstakingly remembered to take each month on his birth day. Then I sat down to put them into a fun collage and realized I had no idea how everyone else had been compiling them. I went to Shutterfly and a few other online photo shops and played around there but unless I wanted to buy a print I couldn't get a nice high resolution digital copy. Next I hit Google looking for collage programs and there were plenty. I searched through a bunch, however, I wasn't able to find one that easily let me tell it how many pictures I had and just simply add them. They were easily set up for certain stock collage types but not one that fit my custom 13 pictures. In the end I settled for opening a powerpoint slide and adding 6 pictures at a time. I had two collages not one and they were hard to see. It wasn't ideal but at least I had something to show off our fun monthly sticker onesies. Here is my first final product... as you can see I even cut his head off in one picture (oops missed that until now)!!
As soon as my CollageIt 3 copy was downloaded I knew the first thing I wanted to do was to finally make that collage of Carter's first year. As most people do I decided to just play with it and avoid reading any instructions. After all, who wants to read a book just to play with their pictures?? It turns out the program is very self explanatory and easy to work with. I quickly picked the template I liked and added all 13 pictures. A few short minutes later and I had this!!
