Facebook is still the world’s largest social network, with over 1.3 billion users. Most of them share photos and videos with other people, but Facebook does not have a built-in function to create collages of Pictures.

If you are using an app that leaves messy watermarks after downloading, you can use your phone’s screenshot feature and crop the photo. This will allow you to save an unedited version of your image to your phone for better quality.
Choose your Facebook page layout
One of the new features of Facebook allows you to choose the layout of your photo. While not a collage per se, it is another useful feature in your publishing toolkit.
What makes a photo collage awesome is not only the ability to compress a bunch of images into one, but also the ability for the creator to tell a story through photos. Rather than the standard feature of touching an image and scrolling down, this allows you to drag the next photo. Previewing the image is even more fun.
You can choose one of the four options available before posting your photos. All you need to do is press the “Photo” option, select your images from your gallery and click on one of the available layouts. When your friends, followers, and families scroll through their own news feeds, they’ll be able to see all of your photos in one frame.
