Shape Collage Styles Your Photo Collection

Posted by Rich On August - 7 - 2009

If you have a lot of personal photos and want to present them in a classic and fun way, Shape Collage may be just the tool you are looking for. Shape Collage creates a collage by taking a bunch of photos and moving them around on a page so that they form a shape. Making collages can be fun but can also be time consuming as you attempt to place the pictures so they can all be seen. Shape Collage take the hard work out of this process and produces great effects.

FotoSketcher Makes Your Photos Look Like Sketches

Posted by Rich On July - 31 - 2009

FotoSketcher is a free program which takes your digital photos and turns them into works of art. This program is really easy to use and can produce some really good-looking results. There are different styles available including the following: pencil sketch, pen and ink drawing, and various painting renderings. The program also comes with built-in tools to help you manipulate your photos.

One of the only issues I have with this program is the fact that you cannot open PNG graphics to manipulate them. This is not a major problem, but I’ve come to expect most programs supporting this format.

FotoSketcher works on all versions of Windows and can be downloaded below. See some examples of the effects, FotoSketcher can produce, below.
