Snap Collage iPad app

Snap Collage is an app that will create attractive collages.  It also has significant Photo Editing capability.

When you open Snap Collage, you are presented with a scrolling list of layouts at the top of the screen and a view of the albums on the iPad.  As you select photos, the  layouts at the top will change to accommodate the number of photos selected.  Touch the desired layout to begin creating the collage.  Photos can be rearranged and resized in the collage.

Photo Editing

Touch an individual photo to edit it.  Even though the photo has a shape in accordance with the collage layout, you can alter the shape by selecting from various possibilities, such as a heart, a triangle, a star and many more.

There are basic adjustments like brightness, contrast, warmth and saturation.    In addition, there are many other edits including stickers, drawing on the photo, adding text, adjusting redeye and even changing the photo to black and white and colorizing specific portions.  There are also a number of filters to apply.

When you complete the photo editing on individual photos, you can enhance the collage.  The main enhancements are found by adjustments on the border of the collage.

Border adjustments

Adjust the aspect ratio of the collage to 3:2, 1:1, 2:3, Letter or a Facebook aspect ratio.  Adjust the size of the outer border.  For individual photo borders, adjust the size of the border, round the corners and create a drop shadow.

You can also add text and stickers to the collage as a whole.

Share the collage on Instagram, text messages, Twitter, Facebook, Email, etc.

Snap Collage is a fun app for creating collages.  The Photo Editing capability rivals many general purpose Photo Editing apps.  Another strength of the app is the large number of patterns and border adjustments.  The only downside of the app, is it takes a little exploring to discover all its capabilities.

Download Snap Collage in the App Store. It’s a free app with a number of upgrades available as In-App purchases.
