If you have been following my 31 Days series, Abby’s Apps, you may have noticed my posting later than usual this weekend. I have been needing a bit of a break and the challenge starts to feel a bit like a chore at this point – at least for me. I still have lots of ideas and like my topic but the daily posting requires regular time and attention. If you are doing 31 Days, how are you feeling at this point? Do you have any rejuvenating tips?
Although this is the second collage app I have shared, I use both often as I make a lot of collages. I tend to make collages when I want to share a lot of photos without a deluge of my life in my friends’ feeds or when my photos look a bit grainy.
What It Does: Makes portrait or square photo collages in various formats.
What I Like: I use PicCollage for rectangular collages and I like the option to delete a photo and leave that window blank if I want to put text or one of their many “stickers” in the space. There are lots of options for free sticker packs, so I periodically scroll through and download the ones that look fun. In addition, I like being able to choose which part of a photo appears in the window (a feature missing from Diptic). Finally, the freestyle option is nice when I want to overlap or strategically place certain photos and the pre-made frames just don’t cut it.
What I Dislike: First of all, I want an option to adjust the frames when a photo will not quite fit as I want. Second, I would like more free font options as the current ones are very limited. I usually work around this challenge by collaging with PicCollage, saving the picture, and then importing to Over to add text. (They do keep adding options, just not ones I love.) Third, I would like the developers to remove the mandatory watermark in the lower right corner but it is their prerogative since it is their app.
Have you used PicCollage? What do you think of it? If you have a different go-to collage app, tell me about it in the comments!
