All of us have made a collage at some point in our lives – probably at school, where we patiently cut out cool pictures from a magazine, applied elmer’s white glue or rubber cement, and then took it home to mom and dad to put up on the refrigerator.
Just think how much fun it would have been to pinch or expand those images, copy parts of collages from friends, and skip the paper cuts. And do it all on an iPad.
That’s Mixel, a new startup that is launching now. They’re also announcing a $600,000 first funding round that CrunchFund is participating in along with Polaris Venture Partners, Betaworks and Allen & Company. The company also took $100,000 from a TechFellow Award in 2010.
Grab images from a search, or from Mixels created by others, or your gallery, crop them (with your finger), rearrange and resize it, and then add more images on top of or below it (or anywhere). Then publish and share.
It’s a ton of fun.
