This article explains how to make a photo collage, and introduces our online service for printing your photos as a canvas collage.

A photo collage is a collection of photo images arranged together in a single composition. They’re a fun, creative way to showcase multiple photos in a single image, and can be used to create a memorable keepsake, tell a visual story, or simply display a collection of favourite photos.

In this article, we’ll talk you through our canvas collage service step by step – making it easy for you to create stunning photo collages that capture your memories and tell your story!

Step 1: Select Photos

Choose the theme or subject of your collage, then select images which are appropriate to the theme you've chosen. For example, if the collage is for a wedding, photos of the bride and groom, the wedding party, and the ceremony would be appropriate.

The photos you choose should work together visually as well as thematically – for example, you should stick to a certain colour palette so that the shades don’t clash.

The number of pictures you choose will depend on the size of the collage you want, as well as the effect desired. A good rule of thumb is to include enough photos to convey the theme, but not so many that the collage becomes cluttered and overwhelming.

MYPICTURE canvas collages can feature up to 9 photos.
