A collage is a fun way to share photos that tell a story with your friends. Whether it's vacation photos or photos from a party, collages help you keep great memories so you can enjoy them forever. This article will teach you to create collages on your phone and share them on Instagram for all your friends to see. Read on to find out how.
Step #1. Download Instagram if you haven't already
Instagram is a free mobile app to edit and exchange digital photos or videos with friends via mobile devices. To download it, go to the App Store on your phone or other mobile device and type "Instagram" in the search box.
Step 2. Download a photo editing app that allows you to create collages
You can't make collages within Instagram, so you need a separate app to create the collage, save it on your phone, and then upload it to Instagram. Before downloading the app, make sure you can make collages with it, as not all photo editing apps can. Try Instapic Frames, Pic Collage, Collage Shaper, Photo Shaper, or Collage Maker.
- Instapic Frames is a free app where you can choose from a variety of shapes, edit photos individually and then upload directly to Instagram. This app is recommended for Instagram users as it uses the same square format.
- Pic Collage is a free app where you can create collages in 15 different shapes with up to 9 photos at a time.
- Collage Shaper is another free app that allows you to create collages in various shapes like hearts, stars, butterflies, palm trees and so on.
Step 3. Create your collage
Select the photos you want to use and upload them to the photo editing app you chose. You also need to choose a shape and, depending on the app you're using, the right thickness of the edges.
Step 4. Save the collage to your camera roll
Some apps, such as Instapic Frames, allow you to import the collage directly into Instagram. If this is the case, you don't need to save it to your phone first.
Step 5. Upload the collage to Instagram
To upload an image to Instagram, click on the camera button on your screen and select the button that appears immediately to the right with the image of the Polaroid on it.
Step 6. Edit and share your collage
Choose the filter you want (or don't choose a filter) and share the collage when you're done.
