10 popular collage apps that can combine two photos into one

What exactly is collage?

① Collage effect

 For those who are hearing the word “collage” for the first time, I will explain it to you!

 In this article, collage refers to combining multiple photos into one! Image photos are below! ↓

 For example, you may want to combine two photos into one, such as on Instagram Stories, but you may not be able to edit them in a very fashionable way.

 As shown in the image, we recommend collaging your photos with a collage app! (^_-)-☆

②Conditions for choosing a collage app

 I think there are some people who don’t know about smartphone apps that collage photos, so I’ll start by introducing the criteria for choosing a collage app ♥

 I will introduce specific free collage apps later!

  (i) Are there a variety of collage formats?

   When you say you want to make a collage of photos, you want to make them look stylish, right? (´。✪ω✪。`)

   Since you have a purpose for it, such as posting it on Instagram or using it as wallpaper on your smartphone, it is important to have a collage design that suits your taste!

   Take a look at our collage app and check out the wide variety of stylish and trendy designs!

(ii) Can I freely drag/replace images I want to collage?

   When you start a collage, you will be asked to select the photos you want to use.

   The photos are arranged in the order you select them, but there are times when you want to rearrange or change the location of the photos while editing!

   In such a case, it would be quite troublesome to reset the editing from scratch (;∀;) It makes beginners cry…

   Therefore, being able to freely drag/replace photos you want to collage with is an essential feature!

(iii) Is it possible to change the collage ratio to a size suitable for each SNS?

   Instagram, Twitter, Threads There are many social networking sites for posting now, and on Instagram, the recommended photo/video sizes are different for Stories/Reels and Feed.

   I made a collage of multiple photos, but when I posted it, it was cut off! If something like that happens, all the effort put into editing will be wasted (sweat).

   Be sure to check whether you can change the size to suit each SNS!

(iv) Is it possible to freely adjust the space between images?

   If there are many photos that I want to collage, the spacing between the images will become narrower.

   If you prefer wider intervals, you may want to adjust them!

   In such a case, being able to freely adjust the space between images manually is an easy trick to editing photo collages ☆ 彡

(v) Are there many functions other than collage?

   After making a photo collage, you can add stamps, filters, brushes, text, etc. to make it even more stylish!

   If you want to edit with +α, we recommend checking if your collage app has these functions ♥

When posting on Instagram, you want to put a lot of effort into it!

(vi) Is it convenient to operate?

   For beginners, I think it’s hard enough just to learn the collage function that combines multiple photos into one.

   When choosing a collage app, look for features that are easy to find and easy to use! |•ω•。)و”
