Title: MS autocollage 2008
Post by: Jeff on April 28, 2020, 07:43:11 AM
Hello All

I have just installed MS autocollage 2008 on Win10

Previously this was a free program.

Now is a trial version with Watermark.

There appears to be no option to buy the prog and remove the watermark.

Any ideas or info.



Jeff

Hi Jeff,
Good to hear from you -  looking for lock-down things to do it seems  ;D.
MS Autocollage is not supposed to work for W10 but it does
There is a free up t date version here called Coolage!:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/coollage/9wzdncrcs1h5?activetab=pivot:overviewtab (https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/coollage/9wzdncrcs1h5?activetab=pivot:overviewtab)

I've had a very quick play, it possibly has more features that the old version but I've only just installed it.
Click "GET" on the web page, It should then automatically download and install. It's free so not need to go via checkout. I have an MS account so not sure if that's essential.

I'll send you a private message which may help with the old version.

Hi again Jeff,
I've just looked at this Coollage again, it's very basic and only does up to 7 images.
However, there's a "Version PRO" for 4.19. See screen shot below. You will need a MS login for this.
THis version seems more like the old MS Autocollage, possibly better.
