I’ve been interested in photo collages for years. Those who know me well have likely seen my Many Faces from a few years ago (pictured above), which was inspired by some improv classes I was taking at the time. It was fun to put together, but also very time-consuming. A couple months ago I realized it would be fun to turn the concept into an app that could help quickly and easily make ManyFace-esque collages. I’m happy to say that the app has launched in the app store today. For a bit more info on the app you can also visit the website. Please check it out, and if you like it, share your ManyFaces on twitter or facebook.
