If you choose to use our collection of stock images, just enter your search term and click on any results you find intriguing. Any photos you click on will appear in your Image Manager once you exit the Library. Selected images will appear as thumbnails that you can drag and drop into collage cells.

Step 2: Choose a Collage Layout

Next, browse our selection of collage layouts, available in the Layouts tab on the left. If you can't find anything specific to your needs, don't worry! It's easy to adjust the width, height, cell size, and more. You can also use the Collage Wizard for layout suggestions.

Step 3: Add Images to Your Collage

When you select multi-celled collage templates, all you have to do is drag and drop your photos in your preferred arrangement. If you need to swap images in a cell, simply drag the new one onto the image you're wishing to replace.

You can also choose to leave a cell blank and add a pattern or a space for text later on.

If you decide that you need to make any edits to your images mid-collage, it's easy to do so right from your layout. Just click on an image and select Edit Image to open it in the Photo Editor with full access to BeFunky's available photo editing tools and effects. And when you're done, click Done Editing Image to head back to the Collage Maker.

To add more photos, simply drag and drop them into your layout and it will automatically adjust the sizing of surrounding cells. Here's a video showing how easy it is to add a new cell to any layout. And if you find your images are too crowded or the canvas size is too small, it's easy to make those adjustments by clicking and dragging or using the sizing options in the Customize menu.
