i am trying to put together a collage of photos... and i want to crop photos in non-rectangular shapes (circle, ellipse, polygon, etc.). iphoto can't do this. any free or shareware apps out there that can do this? i also own photoshop elements and freehand and also can access illustrator. i'm sure one of the programs above can do this, but i can't find the way. i'm in kind of a hurry (a gift for a date coming up very soon) so any simple pointers would be greatly appreciated.
