Some alternatives to Picture Collage Maker are Fotor Photo Collage, BeFunky Collage Maker and PicMonkey. However, these are web apps and they are not standalone applications. So the main disadvantage of these web apps is that they require an internet connection to run. Moreover, the images, templates, and other items take time to get uploaded. Picture Collage Maker has an intuitive and easy to use interface that can be easily figured out by users of low-level experience.
If you are a professional or just a home user who loves making collages, greeting cards and other creative items with your images, Picture Collage Maker can be your best time saver.
