Collage in the shape of a heart

Collage in the shape of a heart

Shape Collage Inc. today announced the launch of Shape Collage Online, a free online service for automatically creating photo collages in different shapes.

Shape Collage Online takes photos from anywhere on the web and uses a patent pending algorithm to automatically arrange these pictures into a collage that forms a particular shape, such as a rectangle, heart, word, or symbol. The result is a digital image that looks like a pile of real photos on a table where the photos have been spread out and moved around to create a certain shape. With just a few mouse clicks and a couple of seconds, Shape Collage Online creates a unique and personalized collage that can be posted on a blog, website, emailed, or used as a desktop wallpaper.

The shape of the collage adds an extra dimension of creativity and expression to the photo collage and Shape Collage is the only collage maker that can create collages in different shapes. Shape Collage is also the only collage tool that optimally arranges the photos in the collage to maximize the use of the collage space and minimize the amount of overlap of the photos.

Besides aesthetic qualities, a collage created by Shape Collage Online also serves as an image browsing tool because the individual photos in the collage are linked to the original source, so when clicked, the user is taken to the full resolution picture or the original hyperlinked page for that photo. This is an effective method for browsing through large collections of personal photos as well as images on news or shopping websites.

Shape Collage Online is available immediately as a free service at

The Shape Collage Online web application is a complement to the Shape Collage desktop software, which has been downloaded over 600,000 times since February 2009. The desktop program, available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, has a number of additional features and options, including the ability to generate extremely high resolution image files, create custom shapes, and export to Adobe Photoshop PSD format with each photo in its own layer.

Shape Collage Inc. was founded in 2009 by Vincent Cheung, who did his PhD in Computer Engineering and is an alumni of Google and Microsoft Research, to make it easy to share, display, organize, and browse large collections of digital media in creative ways. For more information, visit
