Most of us would remember with an endearing grin, making collages at school for the art class. The whole activity of digging up colorful magazines and old books to cut pictures was a thoroughly enjoyed process. Whatever the theme, the colorful patchwork was an incredibly attractive piece of art for us which was cherished and preciously saved. This labor-intensive process has nowadays graciously given way to digital collages and albums made by most of us on our personal computers for sharing with friends and family alike. S_Merge 1.4 promises to assist us in a precisely similar setting.
The software interface has a light grey hue with main menu options located on top and the sub options right below. S_Merge 1.4 can amalgamate up to eight images or piece of text for our collage. Maximum flexibility is assured as options like editing, rotating, re-positioning and aligning are obtainable for not only images but inserted content as well. It is especially practical for overlaying images in maps or inclusion of a watermark in the picture. The sub options available help in stretching or skewing the placed images horizontally, perpendicularly or diagonally besides resizing the images and assisting in overlapping as well. The versatility of this software is further proven with the fact that we can change the background shade with the choices available or keep it translucent; and even set the brightness or contrast of the total saved image or simply minus the color from it and set it to black and white. All the images set in the alignment window can be blended in whatever order or orientation as desired by the user. The collages created through the software can be saved in image formats like the JPEG, PNG, and BMP etc.
S_Merge 1.4 is indeed software to look out for and will be immensely popular with the creative minds. The application deserves a score of 4 rating points owing to its simple and user friendly design and its innovative features.
