If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a collage must be a million words worth. Collage is simply a collection of similar photos which are put together in a particular layout. It's a new way of creating an amazing artwork. If you have a bunch of pictures, you can combine them in a collage and then it would be very easy to share it on social media.

Another interesting thing is, collages tends to gain more people attention because they are more than just a simple picture. According to my study, the organic reach of a collage post is comparatively high. Anyways, our basic purpose is just to share our beautiful moments in a creative way.

Creating a photo collage in your Android phone is very simple. To make it more easy, let's divide it in two parts. First you have select the theme of a collage where you have to choose similar pictures. In the next part, we will create a collage by using a photo-editor app. Here's a complete guide on this topic -

Selecting the collage theme

Collage looks more good when it describes an event (like your Birthday party or trip) and have a specific theme. It should be clear to the viewer why you have chosen those photos. In other words, all pictures should be similar to each other. Follow these 3 simple steps to create an excellent theme for your collage -
  • First choose the number of photos you want to add in it. Starting from 2, you can add up to hundreds of pictures. But to make it simple, use less than 10 only.
  • Next, you have to choose the photos. Adding some random and irrelevant pictures will make your collage look ugly. So choose them wisely. Keep color combination and layout in your mind.
  • Finally choose the background color of your collage. It should match with the theme color of your photos. White background can work any where and its my favorite.
