14 Instagram collage apps

A Design Kit

A Color Story, a photo-editing favourite, created its graphic design tool A Design Kit several years ago and it has since become a classic. It’s on almost every list of the top Instagram apps!

You can create design templates that allow you to experiment with texture, shapes and colors. Elements like stickers and font-nerd-approved Fonts add the finishing touch.


Squarespace’s app offers hundreds of templates that can be used to spice up your photos, videos, and texts. It also features stylized collage options.

Unfold offers fun effects and fonts that will make your post stand out. Professional-grade preset filter adds a unique feel to your images.


Over regularly updates their collection with striking new templates and graphic elements. This means that you will always have something to choose from when creating your Insta collage.

The program also includes photo-editing tools. You can layer, mask and tweak like a professional Photoshop user with no previous experience.


Mojo’s animation features offer more than a large selection of Instagram collage templates. They also allow you to combine your favorite photos with dynamic text and graphic elements.

You can adjust the timing and components to personalize pre-loaded designs.


Do you love a vintage vibe? Tezza could be the app for you. Templates draw inspiration from magazines of the ’90s, Y2K mood boards and dreamy vintage cinema.

Textural overlays such as dust and paper can give your collages depth and dimension. If you are looking for something more dynamic, create a video collage using special effects.


PicCollage may make the vibe a little more “Scrapbook mom”, but it is loved by over 200 million users. You can’t judge!

There are tons of grid options to combine multiple images quickly. However, themed templates can be used to make it easy to commemorate or celebrate auspicious occasions (Happy Halloween!). ).

Every week, new backgrounds and stickers are added so that you always have something to play with.

Pic Jointer

Although we aren’t convinced that “jointer” technically is a word, there are dozens of grid combinations (sorted alphabetically by ‘classics’ and’stylishes) at your disposal. Who cares about English language?

Grammar nerds, let the pictures speak for themselves! You can brand your collages with patterned or colored backgrounds.


For next-level collagery, download SCRL. The app allows you create seamless scrolling images for Instagram’s carousel function (a format that is actually privileged and favored by the Instagram algorithm, FYI!). It’s pretty impressive.

Layer your favorite camera-roll photos (or videos!) SCRL will combine the images into one large graphic.

Collage Maker *

There are many apps called “Collage Maker” out there. (Get that sweet, sweet SEO!) This is our favorite.

There are over 20,000 combinations to choose from for your photo collages. These grid options include all the formats you could want, as well as formats like cascading hearts or kissing faces. If you feel bold, include videos in your collage and add music.

Layout from Instagram

Official collage app from Insta. It’s annoying that you need to download an additional app to access the multi-photo design feature. But it’s what it is.

Mix your favorite photos into different grid combinations, then export to Instagram’s create mode.


StoryArt offers a variety of formatting and editing options. Chic typography and design details that are influencer-cool like faux-Polaroid frames make it easy to create trendy collages for your Stories, Reels, and main feed.


StoryChic has been downloaded over 10 million times and has a 4.4 star rating on the Android App Store — it’s safe to say that StoryChic’s a fan favorite.

There are more than 500 templates, tons of fonts, preset filters, and tons of fonts to inspire your creativity.


Storyluxe’s collage templates, which are many of them, are stylized to look just like old-fashioned film strips or prints. This could be the app to create all your future Instagram collages with if you like this look.

Storyluxe also offers specialty designer fonts. This allows you to stand out from the crowd by adding key text phrases.


PicMonkey is an online photo editor that allows you to create graphic designs from your desktop.

Although it’s owned and maintained by Shutterstock, you can upload your images (even those from free stock photo sites!) You can save on premium charges by using their Instacollage templates.

These designs are especially useful if you want to combine images and text.
