Seamless and automated collage creation, the PRO edition of DgFlick's Collage Xpress is an efficient application for producing multi-photo compositions. Three distinct automated collage creation options, as well as over 200 unique templates, give way to a wide variety of organizational options, which can be further personalized through the addition of backgrounds, outlines, and clip art graphics. Manual control over collage styles, sizes, and templates is also possible, with the ability to define the layout depending on your sharing needs. Once laid out using a series of formatting options, layout guides, and alignment tools, collages can further be edited by adding text or titles, or adjusting the appearance of photos within the program. When finished, finalized collages can be exported as PDFs or JPGs, with the option to mirror your output for heat-press printing, or shared directly to Facebook for showcasing your final project.
Further benefitting the editing process, the user interface and workspace designs are customizable to suit individual workflows, and user-created templates can be saved or shared for future use. A Photo Quality indicator helps to ensure photos are of proper resolution for printing and a used photo indicator will detect photos that have already been used in the collage. Additionally, an Advanced Photo Manager allows you to batch select, sequence, and process groups of photos prior to inserting them in your collage.
This PRO edition is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems and is delivered on an installation disc with a USB dongle for use.
Auto Collage Creation
Automated collages can be created by simply selecting the collage type, size, and photos to be used. The photos can be sequenced based on time, size, or name, or can also be manually dragged and dropped into place. Three distinct collage creation options are available:
Expand: Photos are placed without any cropping and some of the images will overlap one another.
Fit: Photos will be placed within the collage without any overlapping and their original orientation will be maintained.
Crop: Photos will be cropped to the same size regardless of their orientation, and then fitted within the determined collage size.
Set Outline for Photos
Individual images can be highlighted through the addition of an outline, which can be applied with a single click.
Adjust the Tilt
Individual images' orientation can be adjusted and tilted using the minimum and maximum angle controls for rotating your photo in any direction.
Predefined Standard Collage Types and Sizes
An assortment of collage types and sizes can be used to give variety to your projects. Standard printing sizes are available as well as templates to arrange your imagery neatly and creatively.
Define Your Own Collage Types and Sizes
Beyond having a variety of predefined collage types and styles to use, you can also customize your own collage size, margins, and more to better suit specific applications.
Grids, Guidelines, and Ruler
Aiding in positioning images or elements, this tool helps with precise placement according to the width and height of the page. Guidelines are placed over the page, but will not be printed, and the lines can be moved or removed.
On-Board Photo Cropping and Transforming
An online photo crop feature allows you to quickly trim away unwanted portions of a source photo prior to incorporating it into the collage.
Online Zooming and Panning
Photos can be transformed, or zoomed into and scrolled across, in order to bring more attention to specific regions of an image. A built-in quality indicator will warn you if the image quality falls below the required printing standards.
Photos can be aligned with respect to other photos or elements in the collage. Also, an Auto-Align Layers command will automatically line-up layers based on similar content in different layers, such as detected corners or edges. Reference layers can be selected or automatically chosen, and multiple options are available for alignment points on different edges.
Using the full page as a reference, photos and elements can also be constrained to the edges of a page.
This tool permits manual control over the arrangement of photos, graphics, and other elements.
Equal Space Between Objects
This feature allows you to define the desired amount of space between photos in a grid arrangement, and then apply this spatial constraint to the remainder of images in order to create a balanced, equally-spaced composition.
Lock and Unlock Photo
Photos can be locked into place in order to maintain consistency throughout the designing process. However, for more personalized control, images can also be unlocked for a more free range of movement.
Edit Collage Page Design
Page designs can be enhanced by filling them with different colors; selecting different backgrounds; setting frames, masks, or effects on the photos; applying clip art or graphics, or by adding text.
Use Photo as Background
Beyond the hundreds of pre-installed backgrounds available, you can also use your own photographs as background images for a more personalized appearance.
Used Photo / Décor Indicator
Benefitting the editing and photo selection process, this indicator will display which photos from a group have already been used in the collage, and the number of occurrences they appear. Photos can also be sorted by whether or not they have been used within the project. Additionally, while re-editing previous pages or books, you can also easily locate the source image, border, or mask by right-clicking the image.
Photo Quality Indicator
A built-in quality indicator automatically determines whether or not the resolution of the photograph is high enough for the printing size selected. The visual indicator will display once a photos quality has dropped beneath the set quality standards.
This intuitive tool quickly allows you to swap out images due to issues with cropping or orientation (i.e. a horizontal photo has been placed within a vertical template).
Photos' appearance can be adjusted by rotating it in three different perspectives-X, Y, and Z axes-to add a sense of depth.
Create Your Own Workspace
Within the user interface, all of the panels and docks are expandable and movable; allowing you to customize the workspace to benefit your own workflow.
Copy, Paste, and Clear Effects
Any applied effects can be copied and pasted from one photo or collage to another. Additionally, effects can also be removed using a single click.
Advanced Photo Manager
Helping you to source or arrange and sequence groups of photos into the proper order, this photo management tool provides thumbnail, list, filmstrip, and full view modes to gain a quick overview of the files you're working with. A batch editing option is also available that allows you to edit, rename, and rotate multiple photos simultaneously, or one at a time, with the ability to constrain your editing and sorting based on preset parameters.
RGB Color Correction
Photographs' color balance can be intuitively adjusted through the use of RGB color sliders.
Dedicated sliders can be used to adjust photos' brightness, color, and gamma settings to enhance the overall clarity.
Curves and Levels
For more advanced control over brightness and contrast, curves and levels tools are available. These tools can be used to adjust the appearance of photos, masks, graphics, and other hues throughout the collage.
Basic Effects on Photos
Several creative effects can also be applied to imagery, including Blur, Colorize, Feather, Opacity, Crop, Rotate, Glow, Shadow, and Outline.
Batch Color Correction
You can adjust the look of multiple photos at a time with a single click with preset brightness, contrast, and color values. Automated color, contrast, and other tools can also be used for a faster workflow.
Over 200 Templates
More than 200 ready-to-use templates are included with Collage Xpress, which can help to expedite the creation process.
Advanced Search Option for Template Selection
You can search for specific templates using a system of filters to sort by orientation, number of photos, theme, style, and color.
Background, Border, Mask, and Clip Art Collections
Hundreds of borders, masking effects, backgrounds, and clip art graphics can be applied to projects, with 18 pre-generated ready tones for extended variety.
Single-Click Ready Tones
Regardless if working with pre-installed décor or with user-imported imagery, 18 ready tones can be generated per graphic for easy selecting of different backgrounds, masks, or borders.
When adding text to a collage, the font, text size, alignment, and color of text can be adjusted. Presets are also available for streamlined application of text to projects. Additionally, multi-line text can also be added as well as captions or comments.
Ready-to-Use Title Presets
Automated text presets are available for consistent formatting of text and titles.
Import Your Own Images
Any JPEG or PNG file can be imported for use as a clip art graphic, background, mask, or border.
A wide variety of preset effects are available to adjust the overall appearance of your collage and imagery.
Create, Save, and Share Your Own Templates
For more personalized looks, you can alter existing templates or create a completely new template; either of which can be saved for subsequent use. Once you've saved your template, you can also share them with DgFlick and other Collage Xpress users.
In addition to the array of templates pre-installed, more templates are downloadable and released at regular intervals from DgFlick.
Print & Share
Export to JPG
By exporting your collage as a JPG file, you can embed select printer profiles for consistent printing with different printer types.
Export as PDF
Finished projects can be exported as a PDF file for easy sharing or printing.
Share to Facebook
Collages can be directly shared to Facebook from the software without the need to upload through a separate browser.
Define Print Type for Dye-Sub and Heat Press Printing
Helping to expedite your process, you can quickly switch to having your final product exported as a mirrored image for a more seamless workflow when printing to dye-sub and other heat press printers. Rather than manually mirroring your imagery, this simple slider control automatically renders your final product ready for printing.
This program is a standalone application, and requires no additional software for complete use.
User Interface Design
An intuitive interface places all of the controls within easy reach for simple navigation. The interface's theme can also be changed with a single click.
This program is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems, and updates are issued for both operating system types simultaneously.
Free Lifetime Upgrades
This edition is the latest version of DgFlick Collage Xpress and all subsequent updates and upgrades are free for the lifetime of the program.
Get Photos from Facebook and Bluetooth
Direct photo importing from Facebook is supported as well as the ability to directly import images from Bluetooth-enabled devices.
A range of languages are available, including English, Spanish, French, Malay, and more. A variety of other languages are consistently added to the DgFlick Dictionary, which can be downloaded regularly to add support for additional languages. Furthermore, you can even add in your own languages to the dictionary for personalized support.
