Creating free photo collages

For a project, I wanted to create a photo collage, something I have never done before.

I did a Google search and found several free photo collage makers, such as Kizoa, piZapPhotovisi, Picture2life, and Photo Collage.

The first one I tried, Kizoa, required registration, which was a turnoff for me. I have enough accounts, usernames and passwords to remember, I didn’t want to create another one if not absolutely necessary.

I asked my daughter who had recently created a photo collage, which program she used and whether registration was required. She showed me piZap. That’s the one I used. I thought if my 12 year-old daughter could do it on her own, I probably could too.

piZap is really simple and easy to use. No registration and download required. Creating a collage takes only a few simple steps:

  1. Select Make a Collage.
  2. Choose a design template (depending on how many photos you want to use, whether the photos are vertical and horizontal, and what appeals to you) and click on it.
  3. Click Add Photo and then Upload Photo from your computer. Repeat the process for each box. You can move a photo around from one box to another.
  4. Click Save Image on the upper right corner.
  5. Download the collage to your computer. You can also save it to your Facebook.

A word of caution. Once you have downloaded the collage to your computer, you can’t go back and edit it on piZap. You have to start from scratch again. So try to save all the photos you use in one folder in case you want to go back and recreate the collage with some changes. Then you don’t have to hunt for the photos from different folders.

The most time consuming part for me was selecting photos. I had to redo it twice because I wanted to change some photos after I downloaded it.

Overall, it was very simple and fun.
