The top collage was done with Fuzel Pro, it’s a new collage/montage app I discovered in the App Store. It’s an iPhone Only app at the moment and hopefully it will be a universal or and iPad app in the near future. There are two versions of this app a FREE and PRO, right now the Fuzel Pro is at an intro price of $.99. Well worth picking up the app at that price just to have in your editing arsenal. Fuzel is an app that will give Diptic and Pic Frame a run for it’s money because of the editing collaging features.
Let’s get started with playing with app demo shall we…tap to create a new collage.
Layouts Screen the different layouts of collages.
Borders Screen is what type of width (thick or thin) you want with your borders.
Base Screen is how thick or thin you want your basic frame color.
Frame Screen, lots and lots of different styles to choose from…
I picked my layout of what collage I want so how it works is you tap on the layout itself.
Then you will see your two options. One is the camera to take photo. Two is your photo library on your iPhone. People wrote reviews in the App Store that you couldn’t use your camera roll or photo library, but as you can see there is a button of little squares. That is your photo library option button, sometimes it pays to tap on buttons to figure how it all works.
I pick the photos seven photos I want to do with Hex Collage and tap DONE.
This is the default setting after you pick out your photos for your collage.
It’s very easy to adjust how your want the thickness of your borders and outer frame. All you have to do is tap on which option you want and drag your finger up and down to adjust the thickness to your pleasing.
I decided to take out the outer borders and leave in the inner borders in the collage.
Now I decided to play with the base and give it an accent look to them. This will contrast the black and white to make my photos pop out and not blend in so much.
Now I’m going to show you something else you can do with your collage. It about cutting up your collage.
You can make cuts in your collage and add more photos in them, so it look like a puzzle of shapes.
You can also resize the different shapes to your liking and change the position of the placement of the photo you have in that shape.
There is the options of different ratios to pick from too. Sometimes you don’t always want to do a square collage.
These are the options to share your collage on other social and share sites. You can also save your collage to your camera roll too and make a mini gallery within the app.
Flickr and Twitter share.
You can email the collage too and get a bigger results in emailing it to someone. The hearts are covering who I’m sending the collage. Yes. it’s going to my girlfriend and no one needs to send her weird emails. Now if you want to get that large files to keep in your camera roll, send the email to yourself.
The video demo of the app and how it works is on top. Overall the app has a great UI (user interface), well designed and user friendly. The only cons to the are it’s iPhone/iTouch only and you can’t apply text to your image collage. I’m sure over time those options will happen in the near future. Other than that this app is amazing and very impressive, I would give this app 5 Stars for creativity and uniqueness of the cutting features in the layouts. It’s a very powerful collage app and worth paying the into price while lasts.
