Scrapbooking can be a great hobby. And it is also a great way to preserve memories and organize them in a way that is fun to look back through later. There are many scrapbook ideas and ways to do it.

First you need to decide if you want a physical scrapbook or a digital scrapbook. Then decide how you want to lay it out

I wrote before about a corrupt file. Customer service was great! They went above and beyond to ensure that I could download the file. I downloaded the file and was able to use it without any problems.

This turned out to be a great download with a photo collage template just in time for thanksgiving.

I like it! It works similar to MS Publisher but also has similarities with MS Powerpoint but with better editability. Shares good features with Mario Paint and MS Visio as well, with many more features to explore! We just got a digital picture frame and this will be perfect to create custom graphics to display. On the downside, the library is very small, but you can compensate with a little creativity!They do offer aditional items at a discounted price.

After a thousand tries (feels like) I am still unable to register it after I have already paid my money. I have been contacted by support and here a day later..I still can't register it. It says the set up file is corrupted.

This is a wonderful program! I've been working with Adobe's Photo Elements and things on Snapfish, this is so much easier.It's so easy to reposition photos, to crop them...the main tools when creating scrapbook pages. I will definitely recommend this product. It's easy and fun to use. Thank you, GAOTD! cj

Thanks, #6. I think we should be told when there are "tricks". That's probably why my "Mad Cars" doesn't allow saving the driver. It's hard to evaluate when it doesn't fully function! I have a registration screen on this one and no key. I'll try again.

I had try to install one of the programs a few days after I downloaded it.. and got the message from the activation key.. that I was too late and that the activation period was over? What??? Sooo if you do not install a program immediately.. you lose it? Is this right? Please assist!! Thanks in advance!! :)

Very nice. No problems installing and registering on XP Home SP3. Did a calendar using a template and a collage using a blank page (no template), both were very easy. Not much versatility with the included templates, but excellent product for $19.95 - even better as a free download. Will look at the additional templates.

Thank Jerry (post 58) I missed out being able to register The Lost Watch screensaver the other day because of this same issue. At your suggestion, after failing to successfully register Collage maker, I was finally able to get it registered.

Hey, I learn every day. Thanks again.

For the vista user.... Copy the Activate.exe to your desktop. Then, right-click on it and choose "Run As Administrator". I had to do the same thing with Vista.

Installed on my Vista Home Basic desktop, but program will not display message or error, and it won't start. Tried running setup as administrator; activation as administrator; uninstalled/reinstalled, but no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

This software I believe is the same version offered a short time ago. It is the current version offered on their web site so I think they are the same.

Oh by the way . I am heading up a search party to search for fubar.

Without him here it just isn't the same. I have come to rely on his posts.

I could have kicked myself for missing this last time. I'm greatful to see it offered again. I used the trial version of this to make a "Grandpa" collage for my Dad. It was a perfect Father's Day gift.

I am a Wondershare fan! Yes I have used this in the past and loved it as with all the Wondershare products. What I think is unique is that Wondershare is offering a template upgrade to purchase. What a wonderful marketing technique! I bought my upgrade without a second thought and I am very happy with it! I plan on making the dreaded annual family letter to the relatives with this program. I can tell the family all that has happened over the year and pop in a few pictures too in a short amount of time!

Portrait studios charge megabucks to add photos to a college and print out for a nice wall hanging. With this program you can do it yourself and upload the jpeg to a photo processing site. (Example: Walmart) and for little money you can choose a larger print then most home printers (11x14 up to 20x30), when the print is ready, pick it up and frame it, for about the 10th of the cost of what a professional portrait studio would charge.

#47 I agree! Not everyone has been to this site since it started! Repeating offers are going to happen and there are so many out there that use this site to complain. Maybe someday they will realize the world doesn't revolve around them.

Comments by #1, 7, 8 16 40, 55 and 66, You all have said what I have to say about the product BRAVO!

#3 I am glad you have the time to sit and design your own creative templates, unlike me I work all day at a computer, come home and work on my photography until late in the night! Not to mention the all the daily activities that plague me, like laundry, housework, sleep, and the need to go out once in awhile. Thanks Wondershare for making my life easier since I don't have the time to like #3 does!

#13 30 MB? Dude if you're so worried about space, they are selling terabyte drives real cheap now!

#64 Did you even look at this program? This is a College creator! Not a video story! Comparing this program to Photostory is way off base!

#67 Do you work for ANVSOFT? Your comment as #64's doesn't relate to a College creator! Personally I think Wondershare makes a GREAT slide show creator, but that is not what is being given away today!

One last comment I installed this on Vista 64 bit with No issues! GOTD maybe you should add a link at the side of the page For VISTA users only and put up a page explaining HOW to download and install your offers on Vista. I would say it is a fare estimate to figure at least 1/3 of the comments on the products are from people that just can't figure it out!
Thanks Wondershare and GOTD for a GREAT giveaway today!

Ok one last time LOL

It is not enough to be logged in under the Administrator log-on with Vista. You MUST right-click on the Activate file and select Run as Administrator. Then you should be good to go.

To Erika (#34):
You said "Limited number of templates available but you can download some more for free from their website (about 74+)"

In actuality, the 74+ templates are already included in the program, as stated on the template page:


No need to download those. The 110+ are the ones you would purchase to download in a combo pack.

Reply   |   Comment by BrianZachary  –  14 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Very nice. I know that there are a LOT of programs similar to this one, but I'm been delaying picking one out and messing with it, until this came along.
I downloaded it at 2am, took 30 minutes or so to pick out the photos that I wanted to use, another 15 minutes work created a collage file, which I then uploaded to Walmart.com's photo site, and I got to bed by 3am. At lunchtime I ran by and picked up my photo and picked out a frame.
With a little luck, my wife will have NO idea that this nice, sentimental anniversary gift was a last minute rush job.
And now I'm planning on using it to create some special collages for backgrounds and screen savers.
I'm going to get a lot of use out of this one, not to mention a lot of brownie points with my wife!
UNLIKE some of those posting on here, I don't expect GAOTD to present something that I want daily. My hope is to find something worth trying every two or three weeks, and maybe, just maybe, one or two special programs every year. I've already gotten my two special programs this year, so this one is an added bonus! Thanks, GAOTD!

Exactly the same as #25 - Jennifer: "Using XP I found the program does not register when using the readme.txt installation instructions. As per some previous GOTD programs I had to run the activate.exe before I installed the program. Works perfectly now."

Thanks, GAOTD (...and Jennifer as well).

Like #26, I just realised that the program is really a trial program, and the output is watermarked ! NO THANKS !

Thanks GAOTD. Missed this last time.

To bad the template shown in the image is not offered in the product we received. To get the template, you have to buy it. Still a nice program, would have liked to have more templates then are offered.

Just to note, the trial version offered, has the exact same features, templates and clip art as the one offered here.

I have tried several times to install & activate this.
I have Vista home. I followed everyones instructions here and it says it is activated but when I open the program it still wants the code.

I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. I followed #65 instruction also and still don't work.
Thanks GOTD I think I will like this program once I get it to install & activate correctly!

Never mind. Problem resolved. Ran the activation program while the giveaway was running, which, for whatever reason did the trick.

Common folkd, read the other comments. One last time if you don't mind! Download the give away, extract to your desktop, install the program!

For Vista users, after the programs installed, close it. Then run the extracted activate exe. as administrator. If you don't know how, right click on it & select "run as administrator.

It will be registered to GOTD when the process is finished as long as you do it exactly as I've explained. Re-0pen the program & in the splash screen, you'll see the registration information.

I lost this program due to a reformat in October & I'm glad to have it back. Not only do I do some digital photography things but I make my own desktop wallpapers & Firefox splash screen images. This makes it so simple to view the completed protects.

This program is a very good Photo Collage Studio. The support from "Wondershare" even on a give away just makes it even better. Good company, clean programs. Thanks!

Free add-ons/plug ins can also be downloaded here:
http://www.ourpix.com/photo-collage-template.html#2 - All free!

And here for the holidays:
http://www.ourpix.com/photo-collage-template.html#3 - But those aren't free!

First....let me say that the Wondershare products are WONDER(share)FUL!!! I've had the opportunity to try Photo Story, Photo collage, and Flash slides. Top of the mark products. They are easy to use, and provide beautiful professional results.

I took advantage of purchasing other Wondershare products at 50% off, and I'm not happy with that, however. I would have expected I would have received an activation code immediatly so I could use it..but what I received was a receipt and a key code of :

Apparently I can receive it by going to another location in 24 hrs. I just think that's kinda out-of-date computer wise.

Wondershare makes nice, simple products, always with something a bit extra to make them stand out from similar shareware. Installs and runs fine on Vista and XPsp3, as always, Vista will prompt you if it will not allow the program to run without elevation, so right click and run as administrator. I really find it hard to believe that full-time Vista users still don't understand that by now.

The program looks useful, has an attractive interface and I like scrapbooking, I had to uninstall because my computer froze not once but twice while trying to add pictures. I have two other Wondershare programs on my computer and never had a problem, so I'm surprised at this. I will probably write to them and ask about it, because from earlier comments I understand that the company is very helpful.

I downloaded this software as Administrator on vista but still wants a regitration code, i hope this can be resolved because i really like the looks of this program

VISTA USERS: To install this software, download, upzip, and extract the files to a folder on your computer. Right-click on the Activate file and from the drop down menu, choose "Run As Administrator". After that, run the Setup file. Should alleviate any problems described in previous posts for Vista users. I know it sounds backwards, but it works.

Using Vista. Opened as administrator and it still will not register. What else do I need to do?

Since this is the same version that was offered back in September, I didn't install it on my Vista laptop. I did install it on my desktop just to see if there was anything different in it since September. When I clicked "register" it opened a window showing the program correctly registered already.

I had no problem at all back in September when I installed this same version on my xp desktop and Vista laptop either. Both showed the program correctly registered back then too.

Thank You GOTD. I have used your other Wondershare giveaway, the Flashshow Builder by Wondershare and I loved it. In my book the Wondershare company produces excellent quality and easy to use programs. Way easier and faster to use than Windows Movie Maker. I can't see why anyone would not want to get this while it's free. You might not need it today, but if you take any pictures at all of your family or friends ---- you WILL need this and appreciate it in the future.

Very nice program IF you don't have a graphics program. If you do, it's not worth downloading. I had no problem installing and activting it. Unlike some of the programs, activate FIRST and then install.
