Got photos? If you’ve used iPhoto on your Mac for more than a year, then, yes, you have photos. Many Mac users have tens of thousands of photos. It’s almost as if photos breed once they’re transferred from camera to Mac.
What can you do with all those photos buried in iPhoto? You can edit photos, enhance photos, crop photos, share photos online, share with friends and family via email, even upload photo galleries and photo movies.
iPhoto even lets you make books of photos, but for less than $5 you can create photo collages that look as professional as you want them to be by using TurboCollage.
Without the Mac, a photo collage is a royal pain in the neck (or other anatomy part) to create. In TurboCollege it’s all drop dead easy with drag and drop.
Visually, TurboCollage is almost self explanatory.
Using TurboCollage is not challenging in the least. Choose a collage style (Picture Pile, Picture Grid, Mosaic, Center Frame, Zig Mosaic). Then choose a default picture size and aspect ration (or customize an existing one).
After that, it’s mostly just drag and drop to put photos into TurboCollage and then drag them around in each frame and resize to match your tastes and needs.
The entire collage can be re-shuffled to give you a different layout. All photos within frames can be panned and zoomed in or out.
Swapping out a photo in a frame is as simple as dragging and dropping in another photo.
The stack of photos can be changed to put important photos on the top. Use a background photo, background color, or a transparent background.
Four of the frame styles can have rounded corners with customizable radius. Even drop in and resize, rotate, or move text around.
This is the collage making app you’ve always wanted for iPhoto, but could never afford (less than $5). Left sidebar controls give you options to select the frame patterns, add pictures, drop in text, and change the layout size and backgrounds.
Once your collage is complete simply click the Facebook Share button and the whole she-bang is uploaded.
As nice as it is, and a good value at this price, TurboCollage has limitations. You can’t put in too many photos and too few. Changing frame sizes on-the-fly may blur some photos in smaller collages.
