How to Make a Side by Side Photo in 60 Seconds
Side by side photos are used in many ways - before-after photos, to compare two pictures, instagram photos, kid grown-up photos, and clever art photos to name a few.
But how do you make one easily and quickly?
In this post, we will show you how to make various types of side by side photos - horizontal, vertical, 2 picture, 3 picture, 4 picture, and multi-picture.
Anyone can do it — no design background, no expertise required!
In artists parlance, a 2 picture side-by-side photo is known as a diptych, 3 picture as triptych, and 4 picture as quadtych. Some times such photo arrangements are collectively called polyphtchs.
Make a Side by Side Photo
The basic concept behind creating a side by side photo remains the same — you start with a blank collage of desired output size, then split your canvas into cells, and finally place your pictures in the vacant cells.
These following steps are also demonstrated in a short video, later in this post.
1. Open TurboCollage and set your collage to use Mosaic pattern.
2. To start with, there's one cell that covers the whole canvas. Click this cell to select it; then split it horizontally using the tool shown in the screenshot below.
If you want your photos to combine vertically you would instead split the cell in that direction.
3. Split the second cell again to create the third cell.
3. Now add pictures to the empty cells in our side by side photo collage.
The above steps are illustrated in the following video:
You can combine two, three, four or more photos horizontally or vertically using the same steps outlined above.Tweet This Side by Side Photo Making Method
