Ever want to create collage in linux? Then Shape Collage is the answer. Shape Collage was started by Vincent Cheung in 2007 because he had thousands of photos and didn’t know what to do with them. He thought about making a photo collage with his photos, but didn’t like the existing collage making programs. They required too much work to make a collage, they didn’t look nice, and they didn’t give you enough control. He begin tinkering around and invented a new algorithm for automatically arranging photos in a collage. Vincent then realized that his algorithm wasn’t restricted to just boring rectangular collages like everyone else, and so, Shape Collage was born!
Shape Collage is the only collage maker that:
- Optimally arranges photos
- Creates collages in different shapes
- Can handle thousands of photos
- Generates super high-resolution images (up to 200 megapixels)
- Makes collages in just seconds
You need java installed on your machine. To know how to install java you can refer my previous post.
