Picture Collage Maker for Mac
“Picture Collage Maker for Mac is a powerful yet easy-to-use collage maker that helps turn your ordinary photos into stunning collages, scrapbooks, posters, greeting cards and more.”
We did not take their word for it and decided to use it for several projects and in the process, see whether it does what they say it does.
Designing an A2-size poster
We used it to make this poster, beginning with a blank page. With our images and the available tools, it did not take long to create this A2 sized poster. After setting the size (custom used in this case), we started inserting the images.
One can at any time with a click or a few more move pictures to the back or front, change the background and do much more. The result speaks for itself. The client was very impressed & said it looked much better than the sample she wanted it based on.
We could have also used one of the many poster templates as a starting point and customized it for our needs.
Kastelsburg ruined castle, Waldkirch & Glottertal
So we had this guy visiting the Kastelsburg ruined castle, built between 1260 and 1270 by the Lords of Schwarzenberg and nearby small towns, Waldkirch (located just below the castle ruins) & Glottertal, in the Black Forest, Southern Germany, wanting to show off photos made there. This was done using one of the inbuilt templates, producing fabulous results.
We decided to use a custom & not default template size. That is all possible with this software. It would be good, though if Picture Collage Maker for Mac had more pre-defined standard templates, i.e. A1 & co, which would make it interesting for even more graphic projects, especially for non-professionals.

Picture Collage Maker Pro for Windows
PearlMountainSoft also offers Picture Collage Maker Pro, which is however for Windows operating systems.
This is not a 1:1 copy of the MAC version, but it can basically be used to create a similar range of graphics.
Not only the graphic user interface is different. It offers more pre-defined sizes, including the standard A1 & A2 for large posters, which we used (A1) in the graphic, having started with a blank page.
