Collage programs?

by Parabraves1 / June 15, 2007 11:24 AM PDT

I desperately need to make a nice collage but only one. Which photo program is the best for this? I have Picasa2 already but used Irfanview in the past, but simply don't know which one would work the best.

Best to use?

I'm a bit confused by what you mean when you say "collage". If your just blending separate photo's into one single photo then I would say Photoshop is the best... and one of the most expensive as well.

For a free image manipulation program try GIMP. It's a heavy duty free ware program that is comparable in many ways to Photoshop. Learning all it's capabilities can be a chore but get the basics down and you can do wonders.

Actually, there's a middle ground.

Photoshop Elements sells for about $100.

True, I always forget about that one.

Actually, I've never had the opportunity to even see PS Elements. I've read some very nice reviews about it though.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
