Microsoft AutoCollage: Free for UK educational use
From the Microsoft UK Schools blog:
Edit: Long story short, go to http://uk.innovativeteachers.com/Pages/Welcome.aspx and sign up, then go to http://secure.uk.innovativeteachers....toCollage.aspx to get the download.
The UK Partners in Learning team have been working with MS Research for the past several months to persuade them to let teachers get AutoCollage free (normally you can download a free 30-day trial version, but then it costs £18).
Obviously their persuasive powers have worked and it is available through the UK Innovative Teachers Network
. So anyone wishing to use AutoCollage for educational purposes can go to the UK ITN, register for a free username and password, and download their free copy of AutoCollage directly from the site. The UK ITN is currently the only location in the world with this offer.
The "educational purposes" bit means that you can also let students have copies to pull together all of their field-trip photos too.
