Currently, the only Windows software available from Spare Time Software is Grid Collage Maker.
(Grid) Collage Maker is a program that makes it easy to create a "grid collage" (among other collage types). What is a grid collage? It is the kind of collage where all of the pictures are aligned along specific grid lines (which can be either visible or invisible). So this program is not mainly designed to create random scatter collages (though this effect can be replicated using the Freestyle function). If you have ever created collages using Google's Picasa, then you probably have a pretty good idea about what a grid collage is.
Using Grid Collage Maker it is very easy to combine multiple picture (up to 20) into one picture (a grid collage) that can then be printed in such common picture sizes as 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, and 11x14.
There are many options available for picture layout and grid customizing---including the use of patterns that can be tinted with any color at any level, and special options like fade and shadow effects. The best thing to do is to experiment with the buttons (especially the "Grid Options" button) and learn what can be done by playing with the program.
For saving your collage, there are two options: 1) You can simply save the collage picture, which can then be printed; or 2) You can save the collage project, which allows you to come back and adjust any aspect of your collage at a later time.
The unregistered version of "Grid Collage Maker" is fully functional; HOWEVER, "Unregistered" will be printed across the middle of every saved collage picture. In order to remove this restriction, you need to register "Grid Collage Maker" by sending the Registration Fee of $5 (USD) through PayPal to email@example.com. After I have received the payment, I will e-mail you an invoice and a program called "ActivationCode_Request." You need to copy both of these files into your "Grid Collage Maker" folder and double-click the Activation Code Request. This will generate a file called "Send_Me," which you need to e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org); then I can send you your Activation Code, which will register Grid Collage Maker and allow you to use it without any restrictions. I know this sounds like a lot of work, but it is done to help prevent piracy (and it only needs to be done one time).
You can download the free unregistered version here: GridCollageMaker.zip
The program is also available from http://www.cnet.com/.
This is a shareware program. The demo is free, but the registration fee is $5 (USD). If you have any questions or comments concerning this product, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
