I installed and activated per the download instructions. Was using it today, and went to use a feature, and it told me to upgrade to PRO. I thought this was SUPPOSED to be the pro version....

I installed Collage-It Pro back in 2011 ( Free from GiveAwayOfTheDay ) and it is a nice little program. Thanks, as always, GAOTD !

The program does not have a feature to rotate images and improperly recognize their orientation (eg photos taken with A35), so I have to correct orientation manually before I place them in the program. Other functions seems to work OK.
I'll keep that one.

Needed a collage maker and this turns up. Easy to use and allows me to put in (almost) as many photos that I want (585 at last count). Had a look at photospills which was mentioned and cannot seem to register to get a registration key, which really seems to be an email mining tool. Not very good either, I'll stick to this free one.

PICASA 3.9 is totally FREE and does this and a lot more.

WinXP

Installs
Runs
Works

Easy enough to use (relatively simple, actually)
No crashes (unlike other comments)

Does what it does (note mike's comments above)
Returns results as expected

Seemingly an unregistered version runs in "free" (or perhaps demo?) mode, but I didn't see anything noted as to differences or limitations that there may be?

Anyhow, it works, so if its something you're looking for, it is worth a look.

I see that this is a newer version than the past offering, which I don't use a lot but do like when I do use it. Will definitely be a keeper for me.

A simple installation that opened up to a simple program, great for children as pointed out by
#10 Spring.
Can't wait to see what my granddaughter makes of this, hopefully I won't have to endlessly watch Peepa Pig or the BAD Wolf in Red Riding Hood.
#2 John
You're obviously desperate to post a comment early in the hope of getting as many likes as possible; having said that, what you write has to make some sense.
How a program can be both "quite easy to use after getting familiar within several minutes" and a bit complicated is beyond me. Also the links you post should bear some resemblance to the days download.
Please take a bit more time before you post, I'm sure we'll all enjoy your comments much more.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit but it only gave me the FREE edition! I got a pop up with the Activation and it said it was a success but it wasn't.. how can I fix that???

#11 Yes, the window is resizable. In the Collageit window look at the row of buttons along the bottom of the window. One of the buttons says "Random ...". Just above the Random button there is a small square box with 4 tiny blue arrows in the box. Click on that box and a full screen preview window will open.

I've used this software before and it worked well. This version (might be the same?) works great too. Very nice software for free.

PhotoSpills is another collage maker that is always available free. There is a new version that has the added feature of displaying the photos as puzzle pieces, stamps, letters, etc. Check it out at http://www.photospills.com

I have had a problem activating many apps from this site in the last few months. Downloaded CollageItPro which installed fine, activate screen always just hangs and says activating for ever and never does. Tried everything from stopping firewalls,virus software, installing in Safe Mode just now and still no luck. Nothing has changed on my computer. I use Windows 7 Pro and have not installed any different virus software. I even added the gcd as was suggested in a prior giveaway to be allowed. Love this site but if I cannot activate the software any longer I am wasting my time. To bad since there are many good quality and useful games and apps I do enjoy. The only problem is the activating screen.

I really think its a shame that the window is not re-sizable and i don't understand why not, older people might have eye troubles with this size. Overall i like the software but a zoom into the photo to be able to pick certain details would have been nice too.

#2 John. GIMP?? Really?? And you reckon today's giveaway is complicated!

Made one of my grand-daughter in a matter of minutes and the result was spectacular. Don't usually go much on collages, but this is so simple and there are plenty of options for the finishing effect, it's got me really sucked in. Collages, here we come!

Thanks GOTD and Pearl Mountain Software.

Should have mentioned in previous comment that the Windows 7 64-bit computer has an Intel Core i7 quad-core cpu and 12GB of memory, and has no other problems with apps crashing except this one.

Installed OK on Win 7 64-bit.

The Activate thing is also quick and easy - just double-click it.

There's a simple Tutorial webpage that opens, and you can take a screenshot and save it.

Program works very quickly to create a collage after you choose a template and add a bunch of photos or other images you wish to use.

The only problem i came across is that the program crashes if you try to remove a photo or two from the collage.

If you selected, for example, a group of photos the collage is created right away. But, on the left-side selection menu there are Add and Remove buttons. If you click on one of the photos you've already added and click the Remove button that's when the program crashes. I tried this twice with different groups of photos and the same thing happened. Photos in the group are a mixture of 16:10 and 16:9 HD quality .jpg and .png . They were selected/added using the well-known method by clicking on one photo in my Pictures folder then using Shift-click on another photo further along in the folder, thus selecting those two and all others in between. Under these circumstances the app crashes and must be closed.

Looks like the developers need to do some work here.

CollageIt Pro is a nice app, but if you're going to print the results to hang on the wall, or get something like a canvas print made, for example at Walmart, there are a few things you might want to bear in mind.

First, resolution still matters -- tech has come a long way in getting acceptable results from lower resolution pictures, but there's still no substitute for having lots & lots of pixels. It can be confusing, since a lot of .jpg images &/or software shows you the total pixel count but not the resolution at your chosen print size... The standard for years has been 300 dpi for photos [what you see in magazines] & ~600 dpi for fine art [like you'd see in a fine art magazine or maybe National Geographic] -- what you see on your monitor is 96 dpi, or 72 dpi for a Mac.

If you go for quality you probably also want to use vector art borders & such. Vector graphics store a set of directions rather than actual pixels, so they can be scaled infinitely in both directions, from a postage stamp to the side of a building. When you type text in image editing software it starts as vector graphics, resizable without quality loss until that text is rasterized, or turned into a picture. You'll usually find vector art boarders & such in DTP [publishing apps], including the cheap ones, & often in word processors like Word or WordPerfect.

While there's nothing wrong with downloadable image apps like Pearl Mountain's, they don't normally include vector graphics capabilities, & to keep the downloads smaller, they include lower resolution images. I don't really consider that a negative, but rather just want to maybe avoid some disappointment from setting expectations too high. You'll often get decent -- not high end or pro results. For a free Walmart or drugstore print you'll likely be happy, but you might not want to spend a lot of money on a fairly large print to hang on the wall.

Finally I want to mention the potential minefield that is color calibration. In a nutshell, what you see on your monitor may or may not match what you get out of your printer, & one or both may or may not match what you get when you have a print made. Unless you're doing contract work I personally don't think anyone should worry about it *too much* -- more like keep your eyes open for potential problems.

Your image(s) may contain calibration data, your software may or may not try to alter the image based on that data & your monitor's generic calibration table, your monitor will alter what you see based on the mode you've selected & its electronics [most can't really display every color, & they can't show every shade between black & white], and then there's the printer & its software, which can change things too.

You don't want to sit in a darkened room [yes, ambient light effects what you see as well], staring at a hooded high end monitor, after having calibrated everything using expensive gear. SO you do test prints [same paper & rez but maybe smaller], and maybe alter things a bit, e.g. turn the blue down a couple of notches. And if you're going to have a large print made, maybe order some cheaper, small photo prints so you can judge how the colors will come out.

Funny, but the alternates suggested by John & Andy either aren't of this type, or are inferior. This isn't a mosaic tool Andy, nor a watermark giveaway. If you're trying to out-Giovanni, Giovanni, you should throw in the towel now, I know Giovnni, and you're not him.

Back to CollageIt... If you make collages often, this is a flexible tool with a modest learning curve. It is far better than Picasa's collage feature. Take advantage of its free download today.

Same version as previous giveaway 1.9.4 so not worth updating. A good program though for those who don't already have it.

Now THIS is software worth grabbing. Having used a free version of this (I don't remember where I got it (here, maybe?)) and have compared it to others. I don't remember the names of the other packages (that should say something), only this one. I highly recommend this one, simple to use, does what it says. This is very quick as well.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A Chinese company without name&address, digitally signed as Chengdu Pearl Mountain technology. The tested awards exist. The software seems to be on the market since 2011.

This is something quick and nice. Upon start a small not resizable window opens, you can choose between 15 predefined templates, you add a set of your own pictures - and that's it. This program creates a collage without problems - fast and if you are fast in mouse&keyboard than really : In a matter of seconds, this collage software can turn any ordinary photos into impressive collages.

There are some usefull options for spacing and framing, so that you can change the look of the template to your impression.

You can create your own templates. They are stored in .XML format, you either modify an existing template or with more .HTML skills, you define something new.

A nice gimmick. Does what it claims - and is really easy to use.

Test it! I will keep it, maybe I have some use in the future.
