A photo collage is the perfect way to share photos to social media or print beautiful memories. Do you want to show off an amazing vacation, a night out or the best meal you have had in a long time? Those are just a few of the many reasons a collage app is an excellent solution for showing off a collection of moments. Most photo collage apps for iPhone do the same thing with a presentation of grids and other layouts to display photos. This list will show apps that can create a photo collage, each in its own unique way.
Available for $2.99, Diptic is one of the best apps for making beautiful collages on your iPhone. With more than 194 layouts, you can combine up to nine photos/videos in a single layout. As is the case with most collage apps, images can be customized by sliding around in each frame to get the ideal layout. The Diptic interface is one of the best-looking with a seemingly elegant design and feel. You can quickly navigate and choose from one of 14 additional filters. Choosing from brightness, contrast hue and color saturation will help you perfect each collage until it’s ready for sharing.
Diptic can import photos from the iPhone library as well as Dropbox, Instagram, Facebook and Flickr. Collages can be shared similarly through Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or any other apps available in the iOS share sheet. Want to spice up your collage even more? Add music from your iTunes library to any collages that include video. One final highlight of Diptic is the ability to drag the lines in order to change the size and shape of each frame in a collage.
2. Moldiv App
A combination collage and photo editor app, Moldiv is a standout among the hundreds of collage apps available on the iPhone. Available as a free download (in-app purchases offered), Moldiv offers an eye-popping 310 frames available including 135 magazine-style layouts. Each of the 310 frame options can incorporate stickers, text overlays or patterns as part of the background. Want to tweak the frame style so they are shadowed, thicker, or rounder? Those options are just a tap or two away.
As good as it is as a collage app, the real highlight of Moldiv is its ability to edit any photos captured in the app. Whereas most collage apps require you to edit photos before importing, Moldvi is a one-stop-shop. There are more than 201 filters that can be add to each photo, and for each text overlay, you can choose from one of more than 300 fonts. Another major highlight with Moldiv is that you can add up to 16 photos to a collage, among the highest number across all collage apps on the iPhone.
3. Collage Maker
Appropriately named, Collage Maker is another app that features up to 16 photos in a single collage. While that might be a large number of photos, where Collage Maker (free with in-app purchases) really shines is its choice of more than 10,000 layouts. Not only are there preset templates to choose from, but users of Collage Maker can create their own unique layout. Inside each layout, images can be rotated, cropped, moved and set up however you like.
With a unique built-in AI art tool, images can be edited to appear as though they were created in the style of famous artists like Picasso, Van Gogh and more. Want to change a photo background and remove a stop sign or light post? An AI background eraser is enabled right in the app so you do not have to sacrifice your favorite shot with an unfortunate photobomb. How about creating 3D collages? Collage Maker includes that functionality as well. A meme maker is available to really spice things up and start the next Internet trend. A selfie editor enables users to touch up their photos. It even includes red-eye removal so everyone looks presentable.
4. Layout from Instagram
If there is any company that knows a thing or two about specialized photo layouts, it’s Instagram. The company’s dedicated collage app, Layout from Instagram (free to download) is a superb choice. The best part? You do not need to use or even have an Instagram account to take advantage of the app’s features. The app features up to nine photos at a time in any of the personalized collage layouts. When creating a layout, the “Faces” tab searches your phone to find any other photos with the same face.
Every photo can be paired with Instagram’s standout selection of filters and creative tools. The most unique aspect of Layout is that you start by picking out the photos you want to combine first. Most collages apps are the opposite, you choose the layout first and then the photos. Once you have selected the photos, you then choose whichever layout works best. Each photo can be resized in the frame to fit properly. Unlike other collage apps, Layout does not offer an editing feature in lieu of its huge selection of filters. The best part? Every collage you build is perfectly formatted for Instagram so you can share to the platform without any extra steps.
The above list of photo collage apps for iPhone allow you to easily and quickly create photo collages. However, if you desire more than a collage, you can easily combine your live photos into a video.
