Shape Collage

I wanted to share with you a cool website i've recently discovered and have fun with. ShapeCollage.com is a website where you can download a free automatic collage maker, in any shape possible! Any letter, any shape, you can even design your own shape and it's pretty customizable.

Shape Collage creates a collage by taking a bunch of photos and moving them around on a page so that they form a shape. When arranging the photos, they should be spread apart as far as possible so that you can see each one. The photos should cover the entire shape.

This sounds easy, but it's actually a lot harder than it sounds. Figuring out how to perfectly place the photos is an "NP-complete" problem, which is Computer Science lingo for "really, really hard".
