Free version available. More functional/less restrictive versions have a cost.

Watch the uTube video. I was impressed!

I tried this and saved a PSP file, but my CS4 would not recognize it...

Hmmm - I thought Photoshop could open PSP (Paintshop Pro) files, but I don't know for sure.

Any luck with other file formats?

jpg...worked...but then I tried a large collage with lots of photos and the program or computer would not support the size...it suggested saving as a PSD ...that worked, but I then couldn't open the file.

Photoshop has some file limits with PSD files. It cannot open files larger than 2GB or images with higher resolution than 30,000 x 30,000 pixels. If your collage exceeds either of these two limits, then you have to reduce the size of the collage before creating the PSD file.

You can also try using Gimp (www.gimp.org), which is a free alternative to Photoshop.
