Create Collages from Videos with Visummly
Not too long ago, we took a look at PicPac Camera, a cool application by XDA Forum Member genliang.guan geared at helping users create small collages from a series of images. PicPac Camera drew inspiration from photographer Adde Adesokan’s Triptychs of Strangers collection by turning three images into a vertical collage.
Now, genliang.guan brings a new collage-generating camera app. Except this time, the collages are significantly more customizable than in PicPac Camera, and the images come from still frames in your on-device videos.
What’s the point of creating collages from videos? Simple. We all record video on our devices. However, sharing video with others is often difficult due to large file sizes and the time that it takes to physically view the videos. With Visummly, however, you can distill the most interesting moments from your videos and share them with a simple collage image.
Visummly is a genuinely unique and fun app aimed at helping you share your memories with others. Make your way over to the application thread to get started.
