Product Review: CollageIt

CollageIt is a great program from PearlMountain.  If you are looking for a quick and easy way to display all your vacation photos, pictures of your kids ball games or anything else you can think of – CollageIt can help you make a collage of your photographs in seconds!

CollageIt is a most easy-to-use collage maker which allows individuals to make photo collages on Mac and Windows automatically in minutes with just a few clicks! Whether a casual user or a professional photographer, one can easily and quickly master it. With CollageIt, people can share photos with friends and family in a unique way.

CollageIt assists users in recording beautiful moments in the easiest way. It has the following key features:

-Automatic, Easy to Use and Powerful

– Various collage templates to choose from

– Customize Photo Collages Freely

– Share the Collage Anywhere


CollageIt certainly is very easy to use.  In seconds I had all my photos from a recent baseball game loaded in the program. I chose the layout I wanted to create and picked where I wanted each photo to go.  It was easy to crop or rotate images so that the part that I wanted to be seen was shown in the spot for that photograph.

When you are done, you can save the image to your computer to order a print, set it as your computer wallpaper (a great alternative if you don’t like staring at just one photo as your background!), send it via email to friends and family or post it to Flickr and Facebook.

Unfortunately the time I tried to export my image to Facebook there were some errors (not sure if that was on CollageIt’s end or Facebooks) and all the images in my collage did not transfer over as they should have. This happened twice and then I gave up.  I just exported it as a jpg and uploaded it to Facebook myself, and then I had no problems.

My second attempt at a collage was with my One Direction photos after I was a bit more familiar with the program.

Product Review: Pearl Mountain Image Converter

I might have mentioned this before, but I run a website devoted to the locations the show Gossip Girl has filmed. (GossipGirl Filming Locations)  Each week, I get screen caps from the episode and then find out where the filming took place (when I can)  However, the screen caps are always not the ideal size for the website so often times I have to bring them in to photoshop and resize them all one by one.  (Photoshop also has an “Automate” option, but I end up getting everything I’d need to create an online Web Gallery, which is not that I’m looking to do.)

Recently I was asked to try out the Pearl Mountain Image Converter, so obviously I checked it out to see if I can resize my Gossip Girl caps and QUICKLY.  I was able to choose the size I wanted them to end up as and the process could not be quicker or easier.

From the task menu I chose to keep the format as a jpeg, resize them to 600 x 400 while not stretching the photo (therefore it would be in the ballpark of 400 if it would distort the image in any way – they ended up being 337 to keep them proportioned) and I skipped all the other options – but if I wanted to I could easily Watermark the photos (I’m going to have to try this soon to see if adding my Concert Katie image goes any quicker than one by one with photoshop), rename the files, correct the color and effects on the photo to make it brighter, have more contrast or saturation, add a border to the files or crop them.

The fact that the re-sizing of all the photos took the time it would have taken me to re-size just ONE in photoshop absolutely has me sold on this.  I’d love for you to try it too! It would be a quick and easy way to re-size your vacation photos before uploading them to your blog and add a watermark as well.  (My camera’s photos are too big for my WordPress blog to handle without reisizing them first.)  The possibilities with this program are endless.

PearlMountain will be providing me with some serial codes for the program – please leave a comment with your email address and I will be choosing winners on June 30th at 11:59pm EST.
