How do people make those collages on their Instagram photos?

I’ve been eyeing up the adorable photo collages on my Instagram feed, wondering how my fellow iPhoneographers were making them. Well, it definitely can’t hurt to ask, because I got the scoop on the coolest collage app that’s super easy to use.

PicFrame offers you a ton of different photo collage options, allowing you to showcase more than one photo in a large square that’s perfect for Instagram.  I’ve made a bunch already, all of which just require you to tap to upload your photo into the frame of your choice, then slide to fit (or expand, depending on the photo size), and save. You can even share to Instagram directly from the app.

My only gripe is that the “tap” feature is super sensitive, so on numerous occasions, I’ve ended up back at my photo library when all I wanted to do was expand a photo. Of course that’s a minor annoyance thanks to a simple click on the cancel button–and well worth it for a handy app that’s less than a buck. -Kristen

You can purchase PicFrame for Instagram at iTunes. And thanks to my favorite collage Instagrammers–Marie, Ciaran, and Danielle–for the tip.

    According to my husband there are more Android users than iPhone users. It would be great if you could include non-iPhone apps more often.

    umar, I have been using PhotoGrid, and so far it is good (and free.)

    Hi Julie, we have an entire category of apps for Android

    Good ones remain harder to find (and meet our standards) than iOS apps, but we are always on the lookout.

    I just discovered PosterFuse (www.posterfuse) that is similar to PicFrame for your PC.

    It turns your Instagram photos into a collage either to print on a huge poster for a great price or to use as a Facebook cover photo.

    Highly recommend them and hope you support them too!

  • So cool -will try it out now! Thank you for all your helpful tip and ideas!
