Photo collage has been in trend for good 5-6 years, and it still refuses to get outdated. It is very unlikely that you visit a fascinating place only to take a single picture. Likewise, it is unlikely that you visit a wonderful vacation spot alone. In this case, accommodating all the stunning pictures or combining all of the wonderful people involved in a single frame is what collage do for you.
iPhone photography itself is a trend these days. Many people actually buy the iPhone over its counterpart just because of the camera quality. So, people who own iPhones/iPad and use it as a camera definitely need to know how to make a photo collage on iDevices. If you are one of the users who love taking photos on their iPhone but do not know how to make a collage, simply follow the guideline below.
There are loads of amazing, free third-party apps that you can use to create a collage and apply many other photo features. Since there is no direct way to create a collage on from iPhone’ photo app, you would have to go for one of these third-party apps. If you have reservations regarding the third-party apps then Google Photos is one save option. You would have to download it via App Store and then you can make collage through it.
1. Go to the App Store and search for Google Photos.

That’s how a collage can be made using Google Photos. There are a lot of good features in this app and therefore it leads the chart of third-party apps that can help with creating a collage. Moreover, Google is also the safest option if you are concerned with data privacy issues. It doesn’t mean that you can’t go for any other app as the options are unlimited.
Additionally, many third-party apps have been scraped by Apple, and they are no longer compatible on the iDevices. Even if they are compatible, the functionality won’t be as smooth as many would like. Therefore, picking the best collage app is imperative.

With this app, you will find amazing templates, different ways to decorate your collage, add text, touch gestures, and more. It also has a very user-friendly interface that a layman can easily comprehend. The only drawback is that a few features on this app are not free to use.
