The apps we selected each have unique features you can use to create your Facebook photo collages. Find the one that fits your needs and experiment with the features to put together an exciting photo collage for your profile.
After creating a collage using any of these apps, you’ll need to download it to your phone. Once this is done, open Facebook, click the ‘Photo’ option, and select your custom image from your camera roll. Tag your friends, type a caption, use hashtags if you like, then click the option to post.
If you’re using an app that leaves messy watermarks after you download you can use your phone’s screenshot function and crop out the photo. This will save an undisturbed version of your image to your phone for better quality.
Choosing Your Facebook Layout
One of the newer Facebook features gives you the ability to choose your photo’s layout. While this isn’t a collage per se, it is another useful feature in your posting toolbox.
What makes a photo collage great isn’t just the ability to compress a bunch of images into one, it also gives the creator the ability to tell a story through photos.

You can choose one of the four available options before posting your photos. Simply tap the “Photo” option, select your images from your Gallery, and tap on one of the layouts available. As your friends, followers, and families scroll through their own Newsfeeds, they’ll all of your photos in one frame.
