How to Make a Collage for Facebook Profile Pictures

A photo collage for your Facebook profile displays all your favorite pictures as one big collection in a single photo. Using free online photo-editing tools, you can have your collage up on your profile in a matter of minutes. While Picture2Life requires you to register, Shape Collage and Photovisi do not. Each tool offers different ways to create and edit your collage, so consider trying them all, seeing what each brings to the table.

Creating your collage requires no software downloads or money.

Shape Collage

Step

Log into Facebook and upload the photos you want to add to your collage. Place your photos into the same album, since Shape Collage uses all pictures in a selected album when creating your collage.

Step

Type "Shape Collage" into the search box near the top of the page, to the right of your notifications. Choose "Shape Collage" under the "Apps" heading.

Step

Click "Go to App" if Facebook takes you to the page to "Like" the tool. Click the large blue "Start!" and click "Allow" when the app requests permission to access your account information.

Step

Select the album containing the photos you want in your collage. Choose the shape you want your collage to take under "Choose a shape." Enter any text you want to accompany the collage in the text box and click "Create."

Step

If you do not like the results, hit the "back" button and choose a new shape or album. If you are satisfied, click "Save to Album" in the upper-right corner of the app. Wait until the button's text changes to "Photo Saved!" Clicking it takes you to the photo in a new album.

Step

Choose the picture's resolution, which determines the collage's physical size, quality and how large the file is, with higher resolutions comes a larger, higher quality picture. Click "Click Here to Continue," then "Click here to download your collage!"

Step

Select "Click to share on Facebook" to post it straight from the website to your Facebook wall. To upload the picture, click the black "X" and "Click here to download your collage." If your Web browser gives you the option, choose a download location you will easily remember, like your desktop.
