Want to stitch a bunch of screenshots into a single picture so you can compare them? Need to make a collage with photos on iPhone so you can share with your friends in social networks? Apple’s Photos app can’t help you with that. You need to use a collage maker or some photo editors with collage tools to create a photo collage on iPhone.
The Photos by Google is not a dedicated photo collage app, but a smart photo & video manager and storage service. Google Photos has a simple collage maker that is perfect for quickly combining photos into a collage on iPhone.
Some limitations of Google Photos
Before you start using Google Photos to make collage or join together your photos, there are some limitations you should know. Google Photos’ collage tool allows users to select up to 9 photos to combine. Another limitation is that it will create collages of the image files you choose automatically with a layout that it thinks suits best, and there’s no way to manually re-position the photos in a grid or change grid type. Download it from the App Store if not yet onto your iPhone.
