    What's a layout?

    What is a photo collage? It's an arrangement of the pictures, of course! Put it differently: it's a layout! Depending on size and format, you can use a different number of photos and arrange them true to your taste.

    • first of all, you choose how many photos you want to use. Simply click on the tab "Layout": you'll find it both in the Pixum Photo World software or directly our Online Designer.
    • what matters now is the amount of the pictures you've selected, how large each photo should be and how you'd like them to be arranged - for example, with two images of the same size with a small gap between them, or a large photo as the background and several smaller ones placed on the right side above it.
    • you can also create your own layout: simply re-arrange the empty place holders, for example by making some of them smaller, moving them or adding new photo areas.
    • as soon as you have uploaded the photos, easily place them into the picture area by drag & drop.

    Tips on Editing a Photo Collage

    Photo collages with several pictures from the same topic or with the same subject have a superb effect: for example, wedding photographs or portraits from the photo studio. If you've got a number of photos of a different quality and shot at a different time, try the image editing to change them to sepia or make the colours look similar bright or faded. This way, you get a harmonic overall impression of the photo collage.

    Pixum tip

    • Give your photo collage a personal character by adding text: refine your images with a suitable quote or a dedication to someone you love.
    • Your photo collage is displayed in a horizontal format. By clicking on the button "portrait" in the upper left menu bar of the editor, you can change the orientation to the portrait format and back again.
    • And don't forget to add a background colour to enhance the colours on the images.

    Photo Collage Inspiration

    Inspiring tip: Your Holiday Impressions on a Photo Collage

    Remember all the photos of those challenging hikes that reward you at the end with the most beautiful view or the snapshots of your fellow travellers? It's time to display all these great memories in a Photo Collage! Pick the classical Canvas Print and place it in the hallway or living room. Share your holiday memories with guests!

    Pick a panoramic size to arrange a panoramic shot and a few snaps of the details above it on a photo collage. This helps you to get a full impression of the holiday.

    Of course, it's not all about holidays! There is plenty of funny photos from your everyday life in a shared house or from the recent family celebration. Snapshots of the kids visiting the Zoo or playing in the backyard are also perfect for a Photo Collage.

    Best Practice Tips

    Mixture of large photos with lots of details each
    • save time and use pre-set design templates, such as with the design Posters, to set a particular theme or to add a colourful background.
    • keep in mind where you want to mount the delivered Photo Collage in your house. Will it hang over the dining table? A landscape layout. would then be a better choice. This way, no parts of the picture will be cut off by furniture and each photo will get a nice display.
    • be sure to create a good versatile mixture of the different pictures. Use both images of the whole scenery and snapshots of some curious details. Otherwise, you would only pick one of photos, right?
    • pay attention to the effect of the photos among each other: photos with similar colours placed next to each other sometimes look monotonous, a photo collage of snaps with strong contrasting colours might look chaotic. The prefect mixture is the key.

    Pixum tip

    If you prefer taking photos of single details, creating a photo collage of many smaller pictures would be a good idea. Pick only a few photos and arrange these in large areas if you've got lanscape or panoramic photos of nature.
