The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.4
DO you know how to make interesting collages with your photos in an easy and fun manner? Photoshine allows to do this. Unlike other more professional and complicated programs, this one is extremely easy to use.
You only need to choose the photo(s) you want to use, select any of the templates available in nine different categories, and that's it. Then, you can make other adjustments, like changing the photo size, rotate it and add some preset effects, like sketch, black-and-white and sepia. Also, you can adjust the brightness, contrast and saturation of the image. Once you get the collage you've desired, you can save it as .jpg or .bmp (lower and higher quality, respectively) for sending, showing or printing it.
One of the downsides of the program is that you can't create your own templates or edit the existing ones, at least not from the program itself. What is more, other more complex modifications are not possible as well, such as adjusting the rotation degree or adding some more effects. Please, take into account that the shareware version does not include all the 700 templates available in the full version, and that the installation file is somewhat bulky. Except for the templates available, no obvious new features were observed in this version.
