[prMac.com] Wuhan, China - Pinssible Labs, creators of Padgram, the world's #1 Instagram viewer for iPad, today announces HiCollage 1.3.3 free for iPad, an update to its Picture Collage and Stitch Maker with easy export to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. The intelligent app lets users import up to 16 photos from their iPad, Facebook, or Instagram, and then generates a variety of collages of overlapping photos, or stitches of non-overlapping photographs. HiCollage features 100+ layouts, 100+ text styles, borders, colors and shadows, 110+ stickers, and 50+ frames and backgrounds. The most intuitive and powerful of all picture collage apps, it allows users to move, resize, reorder, flip, rotate, and layer every picture independently, creating professional photo arrangements with just a few taps.
* Save and share with a choice of two layouts: free-form collages of overlapping pictures, or framed stitches of non-overlapping pictures
* Add photos from Instagram, Facebook, Camera Roll, or Photo Library
* Save completed photo arrays to the Photo Library
* Share completed collages via email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr
* 100+ different types of layouts
* 100+ text styles, borders, colors, and shadows allow fully customized collages
* 110+ stickers, including English Phrases, Emotions, Speech Bubbles, Hairstyles, and VFX packages
* 50+ frames and backgrounds
* Control rounded corners and change border widths
At launch, in either portrait or landscape orientation, the app displays its collage creation window, which occupies two-thirds of the screen, and the control panel, filling the remaining third. This is the only screen ever displayed, simplifying operation. The first step in creating a collage or stitch is touching the Add button to bring 1 to 16 photos into the workspace. With all the desired photos imported into the app, HiCollage automatically generates layouts customized for the number of photos added.
Users can experiment with sizing, positioning, borders, stickers, text and more at any time; there is no prescribed order in which the collage must be built. Perhaps the first design choice is between a collage or stitch layout. Stitch layouts include rectilinear, round, or shape cutouts of various sizes to accommodate each picture. Collage layouts arrange photos in various sizes against a user-selectable background, and usually include overlapping of photos, although pictures can be moved so they are non-overlapping.
"With so many collage apps out there, why have we created another?" asked Paul Yan of Pinssible Labs. "The key difference between HiCollage and similar apps is the collage-making process. The mainstream solutions, including Pic Collage and Pic Stitch, require quite a few taps to create a finished collage. Their workflows are neither efficient nor intuitive. For example, creating a four-picture collage in Pic Stitch requires at least 18 taps, whereas the same collage takes only 6 taps using HiCollage."
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 30.1 MB
