Do I need to convince you that collages are a fun way to share photos with friends and family? It really doesn’t matter if I am talking about birthdays or holidays, family vacations or other special events, but in all the cases they are simply the best way to tell a story and to let you enjoy it forever.

So, are you looking for an app for your pics that lets you easily combine multiple photos into a single image?

A while ago, Instagram released an app called Layout that does the trick that I am telling you about: it makes it easier than ever to create photo layouts to post onto social media or just share with your loved ones.

To be more precise, Layout lets you combine multiple photos into a collage, giving you complete control over the size and position of the photos in one of the available layouts, not to mention the chance to utilize some new filtering techniques that provide access to just the photos you want.

And that’s not even all! If you’re looking to create layouts for means other than posting to Instagram, let me tell you that the app does not require having an Instagram account. Go ahead and install Layout for Android and follow along these steps as they are given:
