5 apps for creating collages | iOS, Android
Let's start this rating with the app that everyone of us definitely has. It's Instagram! This social network has long had in its functionality not only the feature of sharing photos, but also photo editing and even collage creating. Instagram offers you to try its classical collage maker that can combine 2, 3, 4, or 8 photos into one. You can upload files from the Camera roll or create new ones directly from the app. All this is absolutely free.
- To do this, open Instagram and tap Your story in the upper left corner.
- Hit Layout.
- Tap Change Grid to choose the right one.
For instance, you can come up with such collages.

Collages are trending in the Instagram world now. People add them to Stories and to the Instagram Feed to beautify it. Cards or posters are created based on collages. Moreover, collages are the best option if you are a business owner. Thus, you can show your goods and products using them. For instance, if you are a nail service master, then create a collage to show the comparison of what was before and after your work. If you want to make your business even more efficient, use Taplink.
