First of all I would like to say that I was pleasantly surprised after installing this giveaway. Yes it is a basic program but it could serve those people with less "tech" know how than others when it comes to working with photo's.
all you do is add a group of photos, generate your collage,pick a back ground style,choose a frame colour, preview in full screen,pick the out put format(BMP/GIF/JPG/PNG/TIF),then go to the layout tab and select your lay out. when your happy click save,choose format and your done.
also you can choose the size of the out put as:
800x600/ 1024x768/ 1280x720/ 1440x1080/ different scrapbook sizes/ greeting card/ half a fold card and more.
choose between land scape and portrait lay out.
making a collage takes very little time and anybody can do it with this software.
ya it's basic but some people like that feature.
this is a keeper
thanks GOTD and Pearl Mountain software
I have to add this note:
@ #7 freebird31- just because a program is user friendly does not make it for "dummies". I find that comment insulting to the people who visit this site every day and take the time to install and review the software presented.Ashraf gives it a good review, is he a dummy?
I give it a thumbs up,Am I a dummy?
If you dont like what is being given away,don't use it, but do not degrade or insult the fine people who visit this site daily.
This is not a personal attack on you just my view.sorry..

WWin XP SP3
Downloaded and installed without a hitch.
The "about" details show this as "CollageIt 1.2.2 Pro Version". Once installed it takes you to a link where you can purchase "Picture Collage Maker" at a discount price. This separate program has all the bells and whistles including 140+ templates and over 2300+ Collage Resources.
I cannot see a difference between this giveaway (Pro version) and the normal free version offered at Pearlmountainsoft's web site apart from the fact that no watermarks appear on the output. I also cannot find THIS version offered for sale.
In other words, it is my opinion that this is just a slightly manipulated copy of the free version given away with the sole purpose of promoting the paid for "Picture Collage Maker"
I would like to hear from the company “If” I am wrong.

Today's GOTD, CollageIt Pro zooms/crops, optionally rotates, & arranges imported photos into a collage. You have your choice of several page or screen sizes [+ dpi], portrait/landscape, & can place a simple frame around each image, setting the color & width. You can turn photo shadows on/off, but otherwise can't control them. The page [collage] background can be a solid color, vertical or horizontal gradient [you set to & from colors], or you can import an image for the background, setting opacity, & choosing Tile, Center, Stretch, or Stretch & Crop for how the image is applied. There are a couple of sliders to set photo spacing, & if you check the box for "Auto Sparse", you can use a slider to control the amount of clear space, i.e. how densely the images are packed together. Under "Layout" there's a "Use all photos" checkbox -- when unchecked you can set the number of photos to use... anything greater than the number of imported images causes them to repeat.
To use CollageIt Pro [I know the top of this page doesn't say pro, but the app's Title Bar does], you 1st add your photos -- you can't import folders or drag/drop but you can select more than one at a time using CTRL or Shift clicking... you can import .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png, & .tga. Then click the "Page Setup" button to at least set the background size/aspect & orientation. From there it's just a matter of playing & clicking until you get something your like. The "Generate Layout" button triggers a new auto-arrangement -- the "Shuffle" button keeps the photo arrangement as is, but changes the pictures in each position. At the lower right corner of the preview there's a round button with a "+" on it you can click to see the preview full-screen -- press Escape to get back. You can Save, & later Load a layout you like, & your collage can be saved in .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .png, & .tif formats. Oddly there's no Print option, & I also thought it odd that 1440 X 1080 was an included page size, but not full HD, 1920 X 1080.
Installation isn't bad at all -- if it was unpacked you wouldn't need to run setup... That's not to say CollageIt Pro is portable [strictly speaking], but it runs without installation, creating the same folders & adding the app's key to the registry. Running Setup.exe you'll get folders in User & All Users App Data [or Application Data], one folder under All Users Documents, + the program's folder [~10 MB with 90 files, 9 folders]. [70 files are backgrounds in ...\CollageIt \background \tile]. In the registry you get the app's key & an uninstall key.
CollageIt Pro is quick & easy, & I think that's why you'd use it. It doesn't have a lot of controls, or a re-sizable window, or editing or anything like that, but then if had more it probably wouldn't be so quick/easy, & you might as well use your regular image editing software. That said, there are alternatives to CollageIt Pro almost everywhere you look, & while it does it's job, I didn't see anything that makes it really stand out from the crowd. Ashampoo has been offering some pretty steep discounts, & their Photo Commander (besides editing etc) does collages. Printer software, downloaded (free) &/or included on CD, often includes image editing apps that do collages too -- the same with some cameras. That's not to mention free & share-ware apps, or the many photo sharing & printing sites that not only let you create a collage, but will print it for you [often costing you less than using your own ink & paper]. You don't even need a PC -- you can take your camera's memory card or a USB stick to the photo center at many local stores like pharmacies & DIY using their kiosks.

Yeah, Picasa 3 (From Google) already does this.
1) Picasa 3 is FREE
2) You can arrange the photo's and tilt them
3) Print them off or upload
...but the best point...its FREE!
