Everyone loves to express their creativity on social media regarding photos and reels.

A great tool to gain views and express your creativity, all you need to create a photo collage is your iPhone and a few apps (not necessary). In this guide, we will show you how to make a photo collage on iPhone using our 4 easy methods.


How to Make a Photo Collage on iPhone Using Google Photos

One of the easiest and most beginner-friendly apps for making a photo collage on your iPhone is Google Photos. First, install the Google Photos app on your iPhone and then go to it to start making your collage.

Step 1: Open Google Photos App.

Step 2: Click on the ‘+’ icon on the right-hand top side of the app.

Step 3: Add the photos you want to create into a collage. Note that the free Google Plus option has only two collage layouts. If you have a Google One subscription, you can unlock more layouts.

Step 4: Once you’re happy with how the collage looks, go ahead and save it and download it.

It is very easy and accessible to use Google Photos to make collages. However, it does not offer a lot of options when it comes to layouts for photo collages.
