How to Make a Photo Pile

by TurboCollage Team

Make Photo Pile

You have returned from a holiday, and you’re excited and anxious to share photos with your friends. The only problem is that you have too many images — no one would have the time to go over them all. Even if you were to share all the photos individually, they wouldn’t convey a story or the essence of your trip.

Every one of us has faced the same problem at some point in time. How do you get over this?

One solution is to combine your photos into a picture pile collage that is easy to share and captures your photos’ essence.

With TurboCollage, you can easily create a photo pile in minutes.

Moreover, TurboCollage gives you complete manual control over your collage design so you can stack, position, and overlap your photos exactly as you want.

What do you call them - Photo Pile Collage, Messy Photo Collage, or Freestyle Photo Collage?

Because of the unstructured nature of a photo pile collage with photos overlapping and positioned freely, some people also like to call them messy photo collages or freestyle photo collages!
