How to Make a Photo Grid Collage
A photo grid is a set of photos arranged in a regular grid arrangement with a fixed number of rows and columns. It’s probably the simplest and most commonly used photo collage pattern.
This post will show you how to make a photo grid comprising any number of rows and columns. You can make small 2 X 1, 2 X 2, 2 X 3 grids and large grids consisting of hundreds of photos using TurboCollage’s photo grid editor.
We will also show you 2 variations of photo grids — those where photos fill their frames and those where images fit inside their frames.
Anyone can do it — no design background, no expertise required!

Make a Photo Grid
In this post, we will learn to make a regular photo grid, i.e., a grid with photos arranged in equal-sized rows and columns.
Steps to build a photo grid:
1. Open TurboCollage and set your collage to use the Grid pattern.
2. Set the number of rows and columns as per your requirement. For the above example, we will use 1 row and 6 columns.
3. Add pictures to your Photo Grid.
4. If you want to fit pictures inside their frames, set "Fit Pictures" to “Inside".
The above steps are illustrated in the following video:
Fit Pictures Inside vs Outside
When your pictures fill their frames, all canvas area gets utilized. Photos are scaled uniformly, maintaining their aspect ratio, so their dimensions are equal to or larger than the corresponding dimension of the frame. The downside is some pictures are cropped because the frame size for each cell is fixed by the number of rows and columns in the regular grid arrangement.
When you fit a picture inside its frame, it fits entirely within the frame and isn’t cropped. In this case, some blank space is left in the frame.
