We tested six different services for our New York Times piece on ways to show off digital images. Yesterday we showed our results from Canvas Pop, and today we look at what you can do with Collage Wall. The service helps you create a mounted, you guessed it, collage out of your own digital photos.
One of the important things to remember when using a digital image-to-print service like CollageWall is that you're not limited to the photos you've snapped in the 21st century with your digital camera. If you have access to a scanner, you can do as we did and convert old family heirlooms into digital images. Better yet, you can scan them at a resolution that allows you to enlarge them.
Since the New York Times' piece was published, CollageWall has added a design service, in which, for $25 you upload your images and one of their designers will design three custom collages for you that you can then pick from. That's a pretty sweet deal for those who may be overwhelmed with the limitless options the service provides.
Pros: Easy to use service that takes the guesswork out of creating a haphazard collage on your wall. Also a great way to blow up those old school photos.
Cons: A limitation on cropping sizes makes the process take a bit longer and may limit your vision.
