How to make your photo collage

Step 1: Select your layout

Choose from any of Lucidpress's professionally designed photo layouts to start using our photo collage maker. If you would like to start from scratch, then open a blank canvas and select your desired size.

Once you've created your document, you can select background colors and decide whether to add any borders to your collage.

Step 2: Upload your photos

Click on the Image Manager (or the picture icon on the left side of your screen) to open your image folder. Click Upload to select the type of file you'd like to add to your Lucidpress account.

Select the photos you'd like to use from your computer, then click Choose. Your photos will appear in your Image Manager window, and you can start inserting your photos into the collage from there.

Step 3: Design your photo collage

With your images handy in the Image Manager, and with Lucidpress's robust design features, you can create a perfect collage for your photos. Add any graphics or shapes to your collage using the left vertical toolbar to access the Bing Image Finder or the shapes library.

You can also pick the a color scheme that complements your images and background, on the right-hand side of the editor. Next, choose from the dozens of stylistic fonts available to add text to your photo collage.

Do you have a video that goes perfectly with your images? You can add that to your photo collage, too, by clicking on Buttons, Videos, & Scroll Areas at the bottom of the left vertical toolbar. Simply link to your video on Youtube or Vimeo to have your video play right next to your pictures.

The combination of photos, background, colors, text and even video will lead to an impressive result.
