FotoFusion provides multiple options for automated collage settings, including Auto Collage, Sparse Auto Collage and Auto Jumble. Choosing any one of these will automatically build an instant collage using photos you’ve selected. This is an excellent option for those on-the-go photo projects, but for those that want a little more input, you can resize, move or delete photos to improve the arrangement. You can also open your photo folder and a clip art folder simultaneously, enabling you to mix clip art images with photos in your collage.

FotoFusion shines in its finished digital scrapbooking projects. With embellishments and design considerations strictly following those set by physical scrapbooking, the unique look of the scrapbook is preserved, without the mess of glue and glitter. It also comes with per-character text attributes, as well as text shapes and text effects which allow you to blur, emboss or shade your text.

You can now take advantage of Form Factors, which are power tools that ensure that your layouts match specifications.

FotoFusion Summary:
7.8/10

FotoFusion is one of the only digital scrapbooking software programs that take scrapbooking in a new direction without forgetting its roots. While it still lacks the multimedia, importing and publishing features of the top-rated programs, FotoFusion still makes a very strong argument for itself. And with additional Enhanced and Extreme upgraded versions available, FotoFusion is certainly claiming a lot of territory in the right direction.
