Microsoft has announced its AutoCollage software, which was developed in its Research Labs, is being made available to the public.
The software automatically identifies 'interesting' sections of photographs from pre-selected albums and pastes them together to create a collage. AutoColleage is available as a free 30-day download, which embeds watermarks into the collages. Alternatively the full version is priced at £19.90 and available from the Microsoft Store.
"AutoCollage is a great example of some very innovative computer science research from Cambridge and our partner labs in the United States and China. We are furthering our commitment to transfer scientific innovations by providing consumers with access to technologies that are on the cutting edge of computer science," said Andrew Herbert, managing director of Microsoft Research Cambridge.
