Avastthar ye swabbies! Don’t mind this old salt. Me and my fellow buccaneers are happy because of the booties that we got from our last treasure hunt. Yo-ho-ho and a bottle full of rum!!! While we’re having party in our ship, we’re also taking photos that we can share to our landlubber friends.
Aye, pirates and parrots love having their picture taken as well. Even the stinkin’ scallywags in me crew like Big Jim and Left-eye Morrison love it. We also use different apps to make our photos look more presentable like CollageIt Free and Instagram. Want to know which one is better to use? Let’s find out with this CollageIt Free vs Instagram review.
Make Your Collage
CollageIt Free as its name already suggests is an application that you can use for creating photo collage. And yes, it’s available for free; though it also comes with a paid version. The only difference between the premium and the free version is that collages created on paid version do not have watermark, they can be cropped and the size can be bigger. But if you do not want to spend anything for making a collage, the free version is already a great deal.
You can easily create a photo collage in a few minutes even if it is your first time trying so. This is because it has a user friendly interface. You would know immediately what the options are for. You can choose the template, layout, number of photos to include, background, spaces between photos, their sizes, etc. by simply adjusting on the settings. This can be done by moving a scroll bar, clicking from the drop down or entering a value, which is not difficult at all. Once done, you can save the collage locally, send via e-mail or share to social networking sites like Flickr and Facebook. It is available for Mac, Windows and iOS so you can use it on your computer or mobile device.
Filter Like a Pro
Instagram is a photo and video sharing, as well as a social networking application that lets you take photos, add filter and share them to other Instagram users and other sites like Facebook, Foursquare, Flickr, Tumblr and Twitter. It also lets you take a short video that you can also post on your account. There are various filters to choose from, which gives you an instant preview when selected. These filters are the most famous features of the app because they let you create pro-like photos with just one tap. However, this is only available for iOS and Android devices. This is not yet available on Mac or Windows.
A Final Word
The two applications are both great for making photos appear more attractive. If you are posting individual photos, then Instagram is the app to use. If you would like to create beautiful collages, CollageIt Free is the best option. Furthermore, it’s available for both mobile and computer platforms. Even if you do not have a compatible mobile device, you can still use it unlike Instagram.
