Question Collage making plugin or software?

Hello all, Wondering if anyone can share with me information on either photoshop plugins or good stand-alone software for making great collages? I searched the forum but the couple threads I found on collage making were nearly 5 years old. I am looking to make some collages for a friend whose son died. I know you can do them manually in photoshop using layers and masks and they come out very nicely if you know what you are doing. I am trying to learn that currently. But I am pretty much looking for the best collage software or photoshop plugin for making an auto collage by picking a background and your photos.

I am using Photoshop CS5

Thanks so much for your help... Gary

OlBaldy, Thanks for the suggestion of shapecollage. It is different than I had in mind, but pretty neat. Anyone else have any ideas?

gmambro...Making collages requires making selections. I've never found software that will do that for me with good results.

Re: Collage making plugin or software?

hi gmambro,
I am sort of a novice here... all these other guys are just so great...

unless there some feature or tools i need with a collage... many times i use printshop.... it makes fairly decent collages .... it weakest point is maybe it selecting tool if you need to outlilne a object... but otherwise i can make some nice picture frame collages..
