PhotoSpills 4.2
Create stylish, professional photo collages

PhotoSpills is designed to create attractive collages from your favourite digital images.

There are plenty of similar tools around, but PhotoSpills stands out for its range and variety of designs. Your photos can be scattered across the screen, or arranged in simple grids. There are a number of "block" designs where individual photos are displayed in different sizes. You can go further still by framing your pictures in circles, stars, hearts, clouds, leaves, and similar clipart-type designs. While "Themes" can present your images as negatives, valentines cards, playing cards, baseball cards and more.

The program has strong support for what it calls "Lettering Spills", where you enter some text - like "Happy Christmas" - and each letter is filled with a separate image.

The "Puzzle Spill" is another highlight, presenting your collage as a jigsaw puzzle.

All of these are extremely configurable. Choose the "Puzzle Spill", say, and you're able to select Portrait or Landscape mode, the number of rows and columns, whether you'd like one or four puzzle pieces per photo, and exactly which source photos to include.

A Preview window shows the results, and if you're not happy then you can shuffle the photos with a click, and view a new arrangement.

There are options to set a custom background colour or image for your collage, as well as provide a caption.

And once you've finished, the results can be saved as JPGs in print or web-friendly resolutions.

Please note, PhotoSpills requires registration if you want to use it more than once, or beyond its trial period. But although you're asked to give a donation to charity - and $1 to the developer - there's also an option to use it for free.

Verdict:

Some of the PhotoSpills templates are a little rough (the puzzle pieces look like they've been cut out manually with a large pair of scissors), and maybe won't stand up to close scrutiny in a poster-sized print. You don't always get a preview of your initial design choice, either, so if you're not happy then you may have to click Cancel and start again. But overall the program's configurability and wide range of themes helps it stand out from the competition.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
