Shape Collage Launches New Web App for Photo Collages Called Loupe

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

Shape Collage has launched Loupe, a new web app that offers "a free and east way to share and shape your photos online."

Founded by Vincent Cheung, who graduated from the University of Toronto with a PhD in Computer Engineering, Shape's Loupe allows users to take a bunch of pictures and shape them into a collage—so you can have a Facebook photo album become a penguin, for example.

“People are taking 500 million photos a year and their photos are all over the place. Loupe lets you do something meaningful with these photos,” says Vincent. “With Loupe, people can effortlessly make awesome creations and visualize them like never before.”

Users can pull photos from social media, including Twitter and Instagram, as well as web searches and blogs. The HTML5-based service quietly started up last week and has already churned out more than 60,000 collages worldwide.

Shape Collage was part of the inaugural cohort at GrowLab in Vancouver.
