Sometimes a photo is not enough to show everything you want to show, and it is not optimal to publish the 3,000 photos you took during your last trip. The solution is simple: create a collage that summarizes multiple photos into one, easier to share on social networks.
In Android the apps to create collages They have been with us practically since the beginning, although not all apps are equally useful. Here we have compiled the nine best apps to create collages with an Android mobile today.
They say that the best camera is the one you always carry, and the same can be applied to creating collages. If you need to create one quickly and you don’t have any apps installed, you can always create them with Google Photos.
The good news is that you only need to tap on the menu> Collage and choose the photos, and the bad news is that you have absolutely no no option to customize the result. What Google creates is what you get, which is generally a normal grid. If you are looking for something more special, you will have to install a specific application.
LINE Camera is a camera app, photo editor and collage maker all in one. To have a bit of everything, the truth is that the collages function has quite a few customization options.
You can choose between all kinds of templates with the most unlikely shapes, modify borders and colors, add effects and texts to your collages, as well as stickers, the specialty of the house. All this for free, except for some sticker packages, which must be purchased separately.
