I just noticed this product on the website. In case an offer comes in the mail, I'd like to find out how good it is.
I used a similar product that was included as a promo version with my printer a while back. It had limitations on the number of, and size of, custom collections. As a result, if I wanted good quality output, I usually had to include their built-in generic collection. Any such limitations in MP?
What options does the creation process give you? ie: size of thumbnails, dimensions of output, can it enhance the thumbs to more closely match the big picture?
Any other info?
I have recently purchased montage plus and its a good little package that you can have lots fun redesigning new matieral with photos you have taken you dont find they came out to good so by using the montage you can make them look diffrent and alot better than a normal photo,plus its a good way to be creative and arty with a comp and some photos
I must be missing the point because, as the proud owner of Montage Plus, I can,t see a lot of use for it. Yes it's easy to use and it does create a lot of thumbmails easily etc. However I thought the idea of a montage was to take a shape i.e a face and fill that shape with thumbnails but retaining the outline of the shape.If I put a shape in the middle of an A4 sheet then 'activate' Montage the result is an A4 sheet full of tiny thumbnails that completley cover the original shape.
Perhaps it's me doing it wrong, if anyone cares to illuminate me I'd be only to pleased.
The problem that I am having is that after the montage is made, I can't see the picture because the thumbnails are distorting the picture. What I mainly see are the thumbnails and not the picture.
You need a large collection of thumbnail images to make the montage turn out with clarity. Create your own thumbnail collection with more images than the default collections. Also try decreasing or increasing the thumbnail size.
<<What I mainly see are the thumbnails and not the picture>>
I recommend standing back a few yards. :-) Then you can enjoy the original picture from afar and be pleasantly surprised at the tiny thumbnails when you look up close, especially if the thumbnails are of your own creation or are pertinant to the main image. Imagine a wedding snap composed entirely of thumbnails extracted from a wedding video, or you can infuse the image with some irony by making a thumbnail collection that is entirely opposite in theme to the main image. The more thumnails in your collection, the better the resulting montage should be.
When I loaded my own thunbnails there was a dialouge box that said "can't find tile bitmap". Also when I stand back from the montage after MP. makes the image from the defalt, the picture is still distorted (I can't see the face).
