Would you like to be able to create a collage of your own photographs where the images blend into one another, but you don’t feel you have the skills to blend them together? Then step up Microsoft Research Autocollage. All you do is put your chosen photographs into a folder on your computer, open the Autocollage software and select the folder, then choose the desired size of completed collage picture. Then click “create” and watch the collage create before your eyes. Save the finished collage creation – and if you’re not happy with it just click “create” again and again until you get just the image you wish.
