Hi, I know how to make a collage of pictures on google photos and if I have 3 or 4 it nicely arranges them with a nice white frame around each picture and then the frame around the total pictures making it one.  I have a lot of my specific dog breed friends who post a lot of pictures of their dogs in a collage, however, their frames are very often pretty colors which makes them stand out nicely.  I can’t find out how to do that.  Do you have any idea?  I tried to upload an example but it says the file is too large.

Google Photos collage-maker has no options. What you get is what you get.

If you need to adjust picture locations, borders, size, you simply can’t do it. You need to use another tool. My favorite collage tool was Picasa. If by chance you have Picasa and it still works on your computer, you can do anything with collages. Here are all my tutorials on that: Picasa: How to make photo collages and banners with Picasa

If you don’t already have Picasa, I don’t recommend getting it. It is old, retired, software and much of its functionality no longer works. Collages is the exception.

So, other tools I know about:

  • On windows 10 – Pic Collage
  • On Android – PicsArt
  • On Android – Layout from Instagram

Are you sure you need to make a collage? If you just post 3-5 photos on Facebook, they look kind of like a collage, yet they are separate photos.

Thanks very much for your reply.  I do still have Picasa but haven’t used it recently.  I realize I don’t need to make a frame, I just like the looks of the ones I see.  I will look into your other suggestions.Smile
