1. Filter by Layout and Orientation

We offer 58 collage templates in total – plenty of choice! So to help you choose the one that’s right for you, why not filter the selection using the preference buttons to the left of the template list.

Filter by Layout to narrow down the choices to a certain number of photos, or by Orientation if you’ve got a landscape, portrait, or square print in mind.

2. Filter by Theme

You can also filter by Theme to help you find the perfect text/background for your images. We offer 6 collage theme categories: Love, Travel, Wedding, Winter, Pets, and Family. It’s always a good idea to apply a bit of lateral thinking here and try more than one filter – your perfect template might be in a category you didn’t expect!

3. Select Images That Work Together

To create an effective collage, you’ll need to combine multiple photos into one cohesive whole. So there needs to be some common thread between your image (style, color, etc) if you want to achieve that unified composition. Don’t shy away from telling a story with your photos – a striking piece of wall art with a deeper significance can turn a house into a home.

4. Take Advantage of Our Handy Design Tools

Once you’ve reached the product design page, you’ll find a wide range of design options to help you get the very best out of your collage. You can change the background design, refigure the layout, overlay your photos with “masks” that hide sections of the content, or add your own text.

Just drag and drop the design options you want into the relevant part of your collage.

And for those who prefer to keep things simple, we offer an Easy Editing mode that focuses on only the most important design choices.
