When you want to collect multiple pics into one tidy image, then photo grid templates are the most stylish way to go. Using the collage tool you can easily add images to a photo grid layout of your choice, rearrange pics, adjust the border and spacing sizes, and even add more cells if you need to. What’s especially fun and functional about PicMonkey’s collage capabilities is that you can add words or graphics right on top of your photo grid—super easy holiday cards, anyone? 

Use our pre-made photo grid templates to get started on your next campaign or project quickly—choose a collage template in the size you need, open, and then simply replace our images and words with your own. Our templates are sized right for Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, ads, calendars—you name it! Let's check out just a few of them:

Create a big mood with a photo grid Instagram post

Why share a single image post when you can share one with sixteen? Okay, admittedly that is a big number and you probably shouldn't include 16 tiny pics of your family vacation, but putting together a collage of 16 sweet images that all together create a specific mood is a great idea for getting your brand out there in a single glance.

Pro tip: Keep your color palette simple when presenting multiple photos together so as not to create a chaotic collage, but rather a mellow melange.

Using the collage templates and collage tool is an excellent way to lay out a design that you plan to print.

This layout is perfect for business promos, cards or invitations; and don't be afraid to mix up color and black and white photos in your grid for a contrast that's pleasing to the eyes.

Pro tip: Customize the background of your photo grid by replacing the plain white collage background with another color, a texture, or a photo.
