Microsoft AutoCollage is a free software program designed for creating fun, artistic and professional-looking photo collages for personal use.

The imaging software is fairly sophisticated for such a small and free program. The face-recognition technology is an especially impressive feature of this software that helps to emphasize the right focal points of your photos for more-attractive finished collages.

This software performs a very simple function: It creates attractive-looking collages from user photos. It can be done automatically for quick, professional-looking finished collages, or users can tweak some of the options to make the collages a little more personalized and custom. However, there really are not a lot of editing tools available.

You can use the auto function to let the software randomly select the photos that will be included in your collage, or you can choose to exclude some photos so that they will not appear in the collage you are currently working on.

A few of the editing tools that you can use include: creating collages of as few as four photos and up to as many as 25, rotating photos so that they face the way you want, incorporating facial recognition for the right focus and photo resolution tweaking.

Additionally, the auto feature seems to be pretty adept at weeding out available photos that are not already in focus or are otherwise of poor quality, helping you to create collages that only display good-quality photos.

This photo collage software is an ideal way to create photo collages for use on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. It's also a great way to arrange photos that you want to print and display in frames or add to your scrapbook.
