The common features to all these websites are,

  • No software download required
  • No watermark
  • Free
  • Easy sharing

Let’s see all these sites one-by-one.

1) Ribbet

This website allows you to create collages using over 50 different templates. You are also able to edit your photos and the overall shape of the collage. Another great aspect of the website is that you are not required to use your email address to sign up. After visiting the website, you can begin your work immediately. If you do not have many photos saved on your computer, you can use the photos off your Facebook or flickr. You can also store the photos you previously used on Ribbet and reuse them at any time. After you have finished making montage, you will have access to an assortment of stickers and frames to polish your collage. The one downside of Ribbet is that you are only able to import photos from two social media websites.

2) Photosvisi

Unlike Ribbet, Photosvisi requires you to register for an account. Having to register for an account can be either a negative or a positive depending on the type of person you are. If you like being able to get to work right away, than you might prefer not having to make an account. However, if you like more of a safe and secure setting in which you can save your collages and photos, then a photo collage website with a required account is great for you! Photovisi allows you to choose a few different templates for your photo collage, but it has a far smaller selection than Ribbet. You are also able to upload photos to the website, but Photovisi does not have the photo editing or montage customizing tools that Ribbet has. For detailed review of Photovisi, see our earlier article.

3) Fotor

Fotor does not require you to create an account, so you will be able to get to work right away! Fotor only has three different types of collages, which could be limiting for some users. These three types of collages include template, photo stitching, or free collage. You also have the opportunity to connect Fotor to your Facebook so that you can use the photos stored in your account. Fotor has nine photo effects including color splash, lomo effect, photo effects, frames, overlays, 1-tap enhance, crop, tilt-shift and text. As far as photo collage making websites, Fotor has a moderate amount of tools.

4) Picture2Life

It is an easy to use and highly effective photo collage website. Picture2Life allows users to make a free account and either upload photos or import photos from all social media websites including Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Friendster, and more. Access to any of your social media accounts makes it easy to use and allows you to make beautiful collages from any computer. This website also allows you to use over 50 different effects to customize your photos and gives you the ability to animate pictures. Another great feature on this website is that you are able to purchase professional quality prints of your collages or you can just keep the collage at no cost. The one downside of Picture2Life is that it does not offer the amount of tools that Ribbet offers.

5) Kizoa

Is not your average photo collage-making website. Kizoa allows users to also make slideshows and store photos. This particular website requires you to make an account. Unlike many of the other popular photo collage making websites, you do have to pay for the more premium services. Kizoa offers a few dozen photo collage effects, but it lacks the photo and collage editing tools offered on similar websites. One unique feature that Kizoa offers is a template which allows users to make their collages into special cards. Though Kizoa is a professional and easy-to-use website, it lacks many of the tools that such websites as Ribbet and Picture2Life.com offer.

6) Poster2MyWall

It requires you to make a free account and allows you to import photos from your Facebook. Poster2MyWall also allows you to use various background templates, but it’s really more for making posters from one or two pictures rather than a collage. Like Picture2life, Poster2MyWall allows you to purchase prints once you are done. Poster2MyWall is a convenient website but it lacks many features that others similar websites offer.

7) Beezmap

It requires you to make a free account and import photos from your Facebook, Twitter or StumbleUpon account. Beezmap offers numerous photo editing tools, but the quality of these tools are not of the same caliber as other photo collage making websites. A unique feature on the website allows users the ability to have other users follows your collages. This feature allows for a social network feeling to the website. Some of the photo effects on the website may be found by some users to be graphic or offensive.

8 ) Tapcollage

Another popular photo collage-making website is Tapcollage, which requires you to make an account and offers a number of accessible collage-making tools. TapCollage is more of a collage-archiving and -sharing website than a collage-making website. TapCollage archives created collages by the month they were created. This feature allows other people to view your collages, which you may or may not be comfortable with. Because you can link TapCollage to your Facebook, you will not only able to import photos from your page, but you will also be able to share your collages with friends.

9) Photocollage

It requires you to make an account and allows you to import photos from your Facebook. This website will be particularly beneficial to users that want to make a quick, simple collage. Users who are looking for advanced tools will mostly be disappointed by what this website has to offer. As a collage-making website, PhotoCollage is not that much different or more sophisticated than similar, free websites such as Kizoa.

10) ShapeCollage

It does not require you to make an account, but it does not allow you to import photos from any of your social networking accounts. One of the unique features of ShapeCollage is that users are able to turn their collages into unique shapes such their favorite symbols and various animals. Unlike many of the other photo collage making websites, ShapeCollage has an iPhone application for users that want to make collages on the go. As far as editing tools, ShapeCollage does not offer as many features as other websites famous for photo collages do, such as Ribbet and Photo2Life.

So that’s exhaustive list of online collage making websites. Now let’s see some wonderful photo collages.
