How to quickly and automatically create a collage?

Post by Debugger » Mon Nov 19, 2018 5:35 pm

How to quickly and automatically create a collage in a row of rectangles? I have tested a dozen or so programs and none create normal from squares or rectangles of the same equal dimensions.
Example:

Such as?

Would IrfanView, Thumbnails (after setting Thumbnail options) do it for you?

This is impractical in IrfanView, I just want to add some photos (drag / drop) and super-quickly make a collage.
Only paid (TRIAL / DEMO) programs tested by me can do it, free programs - no.

This is minimally possible "Online" and I am looking for a free program that will do it automatically and without combining with sending and editing photos as in your proposed Online application.

I didn't suggest an online application; I suggested to do an online search ....

Can you please share the name of the Trial/Demo softwares?

I do not remember the names of TRIAL programs anymore, it does not matter, I am looking for a free alternative. For creating simple collages.

The reason i asked for the name of the program, is to find free alternative for the same (as i don't know much about collage). But find a software named "Picture Collage Maker Free" and within a few seconds created a 7x9 grid collage.

Here is a sample 4x4

Actually, I want there to be no space between photos. So it's still bad.
E.g. like here:

The program is for nothing, it does not support drag / drop only "add" from the location, and this is important to me. So it sucks! please provide a different, suitable, better program, support drag/drop.
The program sucks, truncates the original graphic files. does not match the original size proportions.
Pix size proportions pix should be preserved and here flap!

How to create a super-simple collage of photos? Without combining the proportions of the dimensions of the photo and with the support, drag and drop the photo / photos?

After running, no drag-and-drop option. Disqualifies it for action. The program must support these functions.

How to drag and drop in the application photos from many of any number of locations without having to select a folder/directory, etc. Because it's not possible in this application! Also it is not possible to create a collage without changing the proportion of each photo. I want support drag & drop and support super-simple collage.

a *very* quick internet search photo collage grid download free windows brought up a lot of tools.

I tested Collage-It and that one does what you (currently; your requirements keep shifting..) want.

https://www.fotojet.com/windows/photo-grid.html

Note: I bypassed the installer, but don't think that makes much difference.


EDIT: Or maybe it doesn't meetr your requirements (no x*y grid available). Maybe one of the other search results can help you, then.

I tested this paid program. It works by dragging and dropping photos, but you can not create according to the original aspect ratio of the image. It cuts the picture even if you set it differently!!! So is bad.
I tested a lot of paid and free tools, but it does not meet my expectations, eg. The templates are bad.

Templates do not match.

I want to create this:

You could definitely do it with python... probably pretty easily
