Mac users should not feel left out, either, because the Mac App Store has plenty of photo collage apps. What you won’t see as often is a video collage app, especially one like PhotoVideoCollage which combines photos, videos, and soundtrack music options into a single app.
Photo. Video. Music.
Most photo collage apps follow much the same pattern. Select a layout, adjust the number of frames within the layout, add photos to each frame, adjust as needed, customize here and there. PhotoVideoCollage does the same thing but with one notable exception. You can mix photos with video clips with music.
Setting up a photo video collage on a Mac is simple enough. Select the frame. Drop in the photo or video. Mix in a soundtrack of music. Adjust as needed. Voila! A photo video collage with sound.
Videos dropped into a layout’s frame can even be edited (to choose which segment of the video to play within the collage). Simply drag and drop photos or videos within their respective layout frames as needed.
Frames can be customized, too. Select a color or texture from the preset designs, but you’re not required to use a frame within a layout. Background music can be dropped in, too, and you select the starting point for each audio clip.
Each video clip and music selection has individual volume controls, and a video clip can be played sequentially with specific fade-in and fade-out for audio. It’s hard not to like Photo Video Collage but an option to export to HTML to a website or upload to a social network would be a plus. The price is nominal as many photo collage apps are priced far higher. The Mac App Store version is free with a few limitations but the Pro version can be purchased In App.
The only caveat has to do with stability. I’ve used this for about six months and didn’t write about it before because of a number of bugs. But the app gets updated frequently and has improved. It’s free to try so there’s little to lose.
