Let me introduce to you Loupe, a new web photo app. It has been recently launched by the Shape Collage team. Loupe is designed to make shape collages for birthdays, anniversary gifts, family photo collages and any memorable events. It will be also useful for illustrating an article, a review or a post.
For making a collage you grab photos from Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and any photo sharing website. You can also import your favourite pins from Pinterest and Instagram photos. Just connect to the necessary website with Loupe.
The main Loupe principle is that it organizes a bunch of photos into a certain shape. Photos should be evenly spread over the page forming the selected figure. If you are not satisfied with the automatic result you can edit the collage: delete a specific photo and move images across the page the way you like.
Loupe amazes with an impressive range of shapes. There are various geometrical objects, animals, different forms of hearts, popular symbols including characters from other languages and even ASCII characters like ♥, ♫, ☼, and π! Besides, you can arrange images into any word. In the shape tab choose the Text option and type in any word or a phrase. Thus the word will be spelled out of a pile of photos.
The collages are saved in JPEG format. While saving there are 2 options – choose between keeping collages private or making them public. You can share awesome collages with friends and family via social networks or download the image from the website onto your PC.
- fast and easy
1. a watermark
All collages made with Loupe are watermarked. To get rid of the annoying Loupe signature it is necessary to use Shape Collage Pro.
Though Loupe’s shortcomings look rather serious I have fallen in love with the new web app at first sight. It gives everybody much fun and inspiration. No doubt you should give it a try.
