Picture Collage Maker 3 review: Keeping the iLife creative spirit alive

J.R. Bookwalter | July 21, 2015
With the untimely demise of iPhoto earlier this year, Apple appears to have finally abandoned the last vestiges of the iLife concept introduced in 2002, leaving iMovie and GarageBand as the sole remnants of a once-great legacy of whimsical creative applications for average folks.

PCM3 does have a leg or two up on competing apps: The ability to add multiple pages to any layout, as well as save templates from any custom designs you create or tweak and might want to reuse later on. Although the software includes a variety of built-in page dimensions (including popular mobile devices and Facebook covers), the default template is A4, which causes formatting issues when switching to the more commonly-used US Letter size.

Pro tip: Purchase from the Mac App Store, where the exact same application can be found for nearly half off the website version. Developer PearlMountain Technology also offers a far more limited iPhone version of Picture Collage Maker, but that app hasn't been updated in a couple of years and offers no cross-compatibility with the Mac version.

Picture Collage Maker 3 keeps the iLife spirit alive in a fun, easy-to-use software package that turns everyday photos into share-friendly collages for any occasion.
