Framatic is an app for Instagram designed to create beautiful collages. You’re probably familiar with most of its features – if not, you can read about them below. In short, it’s an app for stitching photos together, editing them, framing and all that.
This app is a true leader in this category. There is one problem however – it’s not available on Google Play. If you are an Android owner, don’t worry! There are lots of other great apps that can do the job Framatic does quite perfectly. And even if you can have Framatic on your phone, the apps below are still worth checking out. Without further ado, let’s get started!
1. PicsArt Photo & Video Editor
Even though the app has received a lot of criticism lately, it’s not about the app itself being bad, it’s because some people overdo all the photoshop functions it carries – so images look natural. But this time we’re not talking about PicsArt’s photoshop features, we’re taking a look at its flawless dramatic functionality.
PicsArt brings you tons of possibilities for editing photos and creating beautiful collages. When you want to care for a new collage, you can choose an existing template or choose a free form – it’s up to you. There are dozens of templates to choose from. If the photo doesn’t fit into the frame, you can always edit and crop it.
What’s more, you can add colorful descriptions and sayings under each photo which will make the college as a whole more authentic. Or, you can go another way – first, edit all the images you want to combine – add details, fix imperfections, layer filters, but – then compile a collage in a unique style.
2. Pic Collage
Photo Collage is an excellent collage app that gives you so much freedom to get creative! You can select one of the app’s grid layouts or templates. You can create freestyle collages, in which you place your own photos.

You can even write on your collage. Fancy fonts are provided to make this process more interesting. You can also draw. Overall, you can do whatever you want to get a unique picture.
The power of this application cannot be measured. No, don’t even try. No ads – nothing to distract you from being creative. And the application is completely free!
There are only a few extra filters, stickers, etc. That has a price, but even without them, the app is cool enough to use. Download Photo Collage now and start making amazing collages! Your Instagram account can’t wait to get such beauties!
3. Layout from Instagram
Of course, the social media biggest about sharing photos makes the right collage app. In fact, if you’ve been using Instagram for a long time, which I’m sure you are, this app is offered to you as an opportunity to easily combine photos into collages.
The layout is pretty simple – no funky frames or filters, not too much layout – just the basics. The maximum number of photos that can be used as a collage is 9.
What’s great about this app is that everything is very intuitive. You can mirror, flip, replace, zoom in and out photos without looking for the right button to do it.
What’s more, there are no ads or premium offers which can be very annoying. Filters can be applied on Instagram both to all photos at once and to each photo separately. If you’re looking for something simple that can quickly turn your photos into great collages to share with friends, you’ve found it!
MOLDIVE is more than just a collage app. It has it all – everything for handling photos. First of all, it is a very powerful photo editor with more than a hundred filters. Then it’s a pro camera and selfie enhancement tool (or how do they call it?). After all, this little app will give you everything you might need to get good pictures.
However, our topic is about collages & framing. And this feature is also in Moldiv. You can make regular collages, of course, but with the tools this app has, you can create true masterpieces! You can use text, stickers, change the background – you name it.
If the collage isn’t enough for you, you can make a whole magazine! Or album. Or a poster. What’s more, you can save all those wonderful things in the highest resolution. It will be easier if you want to print your images or just view them from your PC.
Overall, this minimalist app with attractive appearance will certainly meet the needs of those who frequently use social media or those who just love photography. There are several features that require payment. Apart from that, the app is great!
5. Photo Grid
Photo Grid is also a very complex application. There are many features for creating & editing photos, but let’s think about what we are interested in.
And that’s collage making. This one is unique in that it lets users create collages from videos! It’s even possible to use videos and photos together, which is wonderful. There are 300 templates, tons of backgrounds and more.
The only problem with this app is that it is full of ads, at least on Android, and it spoils the overall impression.
However, if you think it can be a hassle to get an awesome looking collage made of videos with cool filters and stickers, then I’m pretty sure you should download this app! Great for making birthday cards for friends and family.
Okay, let’s be honest from the start. This app is not free (which frees you from ads and so on), but it is worth considering. Especially since it costs less than a dollar. PicFrame has more than 70 frames and many different shapes to beautify your photos.
You can apply filters and shadows to your photos. You can choose a frame color, add text, and more. The only thing that makes me unsure about this app is that it can only use 9 photos at a time, while some other free apps take this number up to 16.
The good thing is that it also uses videos that you can edit and you can add your favorite music. One more advantage of this app is its simplicity, which makes it very easy to use. So if you have the extra bucks you can try this one out!
7. Live Collage
Live college is a collage or, as we name it in the title, a dramatic app for iOS, so if you have an Android device you can skip this part.
Great, now only iOS owners are with me 🙂 The number of downloads for this app is insane! And there’s a reason for that. The app has more than 5 thousand layouts, 500 borders, and lots of cool templates to use on special occasions, like birthdays, X-mas, love, etc.

Videos can be edited and used too. Get this amazing app now and explore all the possibilities it offers! This one’s completely free.
Initially, Canva was just a PC program, but recently it has become so popular that developers have also created apps. In fact, Canva is a multi-functional image maker, where you can not only create collages and edit images, but also compile completely new images from them and put them in different shapes.
For example, Canca can help you create a CV or main image for your website, or your photo album cover. This app provides excellent options for photo layouts and combinations. In addition, all images are saved in high quality and multiple formats.
In all, there are over 60,000 templates created by professional designers – a guarantee that your collage won’t look like junk. In addition, you can easily add quotes or lots of text to photos. Change the font (there are about 700 options), size, color, spacing, and position.
The best thing about not that it’s completely free. You can create truly beautiful pictures here in lovely frames, create family posters, collages with photos of you and your friends – and they will look like they were created by a real professional.

You can choose from thousands of templates or create your own. The main features of Adobe Spark may not be relevant here, however, it is also a great video collage maker, with cool video editing options. So, you can, for example, make a collage with photos and videos at the same time!
BeFunky is an excellent basic app for editing photos. It has everything an average user would ask for – lots of editing tools, filters, tools that make you prettier (still don’t know how they’re called). But there is more to it than that. As you may have guessed, this app is on our list for creating collages. And I think that makes them pretty good.
There are many templates, to start with, and they are all grouped into categories – one photo, two photos, six photos, etc. You can change the width and roundness if there are such words.
Then you add a photo, change the frame background (template), add all the necessary details and here it is, with a great new collage for Instagram, Facebook, or just for yourself.
The details are in the form of text and stickers as usual. And there are lots of cool stickers! The nice thing is that they are all free. I think this app is worth downloading just because of the stickers. For example, there are categories such as speech balloons, zodiac signs, food. Overall, if you want to have a cool modern collage app that works well, BeFunky is worth checking out!
