*closed* Collageit Pro review and give away *20 copies to be won*

I was asked if I wanted to try out Collageit Pro and if I liked it to tell you all about it and offer 20 free copies to give away, well I liked it, I'm telling you all about it and I have 20 copies to give away. 

CollageIt is an easy-to-use photo collage maker for Mac OS X & Windows, which makes collage automatically. In a matter of seconds, this collage software can turn any ordinary photos into impressive collages.
This is the spiel I was sent when I was asked to try it out, and I thought sounds good, having been joining in with Project 365 for over a year now and having seen so many others using collages I had to give it a go. 

with a plain background
It loaded very easily, it runs smoothly and as very easy to use.
Load up the pictures you want, choose the template you want, and it does it all for you. If you don't like the arrangement you can change your template, or  hit shuffle and it shuffles your pictures round.

The programme automatically chooses which parts of your picture to show, but by clicking on crop you can choose your own area if you would prefer a slightly different view of the same picture.

Once your pictures are in the collage you can change the spacing in between the pictures, the colour and size of the margins and you can change your back ground colour. You can set up your own page size or choose your pixels.

So what can Collgeit do?
