How to Create Collages Using iPhoto

By Mar 30,2017 10:10 am

We always store tons of photos of events like birthday party, summer trip, Christmas gathering and more. Creating unique personalized photo collages with these photos and post them on blog or Facebook page is a good idea. We can even add the photos to the digital photo frame or print it out for a physical poster display. For Mac users, iPhoto is a great tool to make a photo collage.

But before you make a photo collage using iPhoto, here are some important things for you to know:

  1. Technically, iPhoto can’t make fancy photo collages like other Mac Photo Collages software. So don’t expect too much of it. iPhoto only create greeting cards with a simple collage layout.
  2. The templates iPhoto offers are quite limited and ordinary that you might feel a little bit disappointed.
  3. iPhoto offers no share options to save photo collage to desktop or to post on Facebook, which is a basic feature of picture collage applications.

So, if this isn’t quite what you’re looking for, get Collage Maker for Mac instead or use some online photo collage service instead.
