How to create photo collages on Android

Instead of sharing pictures individually, make a collage to share through your social media apps.

Sharing photos allows friends and family to relive one of your moments. However, sometimes a single picture just isn't enough. So whether you want to show off pictures from a fun day at a theme park, your kids doing something funny, or your pets being cute, using Photo Grid for Android is a great way to start.

Step 4: Tap on individual photos to select them and then click Create. If you make a mistake, the photo or photos can be removed at the bottom of the screen.

Step 5: Press the left and right arrows at the bottom of the screen to change the order of the pictures in the collage.

Step 6: For some reason, the app starts you with a frilly pink border for collages. Luckily, this can be changed by sliding your finger left and right across the images.

Step 7: Now you can Save the collage to your SD card, or Share it via one of the apps on your phone. (There's also an Edit button in case you need to swap out a pic or two.)

That's it. Now instead of having to individually upload each photo, you can share groups of them at a time with an artsy twist.
