Instagram collages are a great way to tell a story with your photos and make your content stand out.
Making collages is also easy to do directly from your phone, and uploading them to Instagram takes only a few extra seconds.
Although you can’t create collages directly from the Instagram app, there are dozens of third party apps up to the task.
Below you’ll find the top five collage apps as well as a brief description of what makes them worth your while.
Ready for all your one-tap collage creation needs, the InstaPicFrame app allows you to use either preset photo templates or customized overlays to create professional looking collages instantly. Simply shake your device to change the photo template and then share them through Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and Flickr all from the same app. InstaPicFrame is free and has over ten million installations to date.
Calling itself the easiest way to create collages, Collage Shaper allows you to select from more than 70 shape templates to make your collages. Browse from categories like romance and sports or shapes and animals to pick the perfect shape stencil for your collages.
