With the popularity of smartphones that now capture great photos like digital cameras, it’s easier for users to take wonderful images. These pictures can also be enhanced or made into a collage using various applications. CollageIt Free (the latest version is CollageIt 3 Free) and Instagram are two of these programs.

You can save your collage to your computer, send it via e-mail or share on Facebook and Flickr. This is compatible for both Mac and Windows computers. It also has a version for iOS devices.

CollageIt comes with various layouts, templates and backgrounds. It has a user friendly interface so it would be easy for you to learn how to use it. Choose your template and add the photos that you would like to include by dragging them on the specified field or by clicking the add button and selecting the images.

What is Instagram?

Instagram on the other hand is a free photo editing and sharing application that is available for iOS users. There is currently no version for Mac, though there are third party programs that you can use to access Instagram on your Mac like InstaDesk. You can do everything that you usually do on your Instagram account except for uploading photos. This is only exclusive for the mobile app, as well as the creation of an Instagram account.

Instagram lets you enhance photos and save them on your phone, share with your Instagram followers or post on Twitter and Facebook. You can resize your photos before sharing. It is most popular for its filters that let you instantly add effects on your images, making them look more eye-catching.

Furthermore, it is compatible with Mac, as well as with iOS devices. The drawback is that it doesn’t come with photo enhancement feature like filters. But if your photos are already good, this wouldn’t be needed.

Pros and Cons of Instagram

The good thing about Instagram is that it lets you add filters making your photos look like they were taken by a pro. However, you cannot create a collage using it. Plus, it doesn’t come with a Mac version so you need to use another program in order to access your Instagram account, which would not even allow you to upload photos.
