My Verdict

Pixel Mixer is a nice free Windows 8 Collage Maker app to quickly create picture collage of your photos. You can use photos from your local picture library or take snaps with webcam. The app offers to create a collage of as many pictures as you want. However, while selecting odd number of photos or converting too many photos into a collage, the aspect ratio of pictures get affected and the beauty of the collage is lost. There are better Windows 8 collage maker apps available which you can try. But if you want to quickly create a simple collage of your photos, you can give this app a try.
