How to Create Stunning Collages on Samsung Galaxy Phones

A photo collage is a creative way to showcase multiple photographs in a single image. It allows you to arrange and combine photos and videos into various layouts, creating a visually appealing composition. While many people use third-party collage-making apps, Samsung Galaxy phones come with a built-in collage maker that offers a seamless and convenient experience. In this article, we will guide you through the process of creating and editing collages on your Samsung Galaxy phone.

Creating a Collage on Samsung Phone

Samsung Galaxy phones feature a hidden collage maker within the Gallery app. To access this feature and start creating your collage, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the Samsung Gallery app on your phone. This app is pre-installed on Samsung Galaxy phones.

  2. Touch and hold the first picture that you want to add to the collage. A blue checkmark will appear on the selected image. Tap on other images to include them in your collage. You can always add or remove images later.

Note: You can add up to 6 items in a collage.

  1. With the images selected, tap on the three-dot icon and choose “Create” from the menu.

  2. Select “Collage” from the list of options.

  3. The collage maker will automatically choose a layout for your collage. If you are satisfied with the layout, tap on “Save” at the top to download the collage. If you want to make further edits, continue reading.

Editing a Collage on Samsung

Once you have selected the pictures and created the collage, you can further customize it using the editing features available. Here are the editing tasks you can perform:

Change Layout

At the bottom of the collage editing screen, you will find different collage layouts. Tap on a layout to use it. The added images will automatically switch to the selected layout. Alternatively, you can press the Shuffle button to explore various layout options.

Add More Pictures or Videos

To add more photos or videos to your collage, tap on the “+” icon located before the layouts. Remember, you can only add a maximum of 6 items to a collage.

Change Aspect Ratio of Collage

By default, the collage will have a 1:1 aspect ratio. If you prefer a different aspect ratio, tap on the Aspect ratio icon at the bottom and choose the desired size (9:16 or 16:9).

Change Border Style, Color, and Size

To customize the border of the collage, tap on the Border tab at the bottom of the editing screen. Use the top slider to adjust the roundness of the border and the second slider to change the border size. You can also choose different border colors using the color palette.

Replace Photo or Video

If you want to replace a photo or video in your collage, simply tap on it and select the Replace icon. Choose the desired photo or video from your Gallery to replace the existing one.

Delete Photo

To remove a photo from your collage entirely, tap on it and select the Delete icon. This will delete the photo along with its image box, resulting in one fewer image box in your collage.

Edit Photo

If you wish to edit individual photos within the collage, you can do so directly from the collage itself. Tap on the photo you want to edit and press the Pencil (edit) icon. This will take you to the photo editor screen, where you can crop, resize, add filters, and perform other editing tasks using the built-in photo editor.

Zoom Picture

Unlike many other collage-making apps, the Samsung collage maker allows you to adjust the zoom of the pictures in your collage. To zoom in or out on a picture, simply tap on it and use the pinch-in and pinch-out gestures. You can also drag the picture to reposition it within the collage.

Change Image Box Size

By default, an image will fit the size of its image box in the collage. However, if you want to resize the image box, tap on the image and a yellow border will appear around it. You will also see a yellow dot on the box's center-left or right edge. Drag the dot to increase or decrease the size of the image box according to your preference.


Creating collages on Samsung Galaxy phones has never been easier. With the built-in collage maker in the Gallery app, you can unleash your creativity and transform your collection of photos and videos into stunning compositions. Follow the steps and explore the editing options to craft personalized collages that capture your unique style.
