Services like Design A Mosaic, College.com, Pixisnap, Picartia, Picture2Life and PhotoVisi can help you to easily make great free collages. On your computer and on your iPhone - there are a growing number of collage makers. Turn you collages into posters; post them on your own website or your Facebook or MySpace pages; print them out - there are a ton of ways to have fun with photo collages. They are especially awesome gifts if you make a collage of a party or a trip and share it with all the other folks who were there with you.

Collage.com

I thought I had tried out all the photo collage tools out there, but a reader left me a comment about collage.com and I was amazed! This website lets you upload pictures, make them into a shape collage, and order high-quality prints. You can share Collage.com collages online for free on Facebook or via a direct link. Each collage can include hundreds of pictures arranged however you like.

I love the variety of shapes - wedding, wedding kiss, US map, paw, wedding cake, mountain, tree and even a teddy bear! Other services have some interesting shapes but the technology that differentiates Collage.com from other software is its patent-pending auto-placement engine. Collage.com will automatically arrange photos to cover any shape without gaps or overlapping - something you can't get anywhere else!

But that isn't all. Collage.com also lets you place photos anywhere you want. It will automatically adjust surrounding photos to eliminate gaps and overlapping, leaving a picture-perfect shape collage!

In the above example 481 photos were used to create this mosaic and in the inset you can see several individual photos. You can view the mosaic online and even print it WORLDWIDE via the Peecho printing option. I like this application for ease of use and I used it for those photos I had already stored on Dropbox. Likewise, if your photos are on Facebook, Instagram or Dropbox it could be a great service for you!

Like most collage programs, Loupe organizes a bunch of photos into a certain shape. But beyond that, Loupe gets better and better. If you are not satisfied with the automatic result you can edit the collage: delete a specific photo and move images across the shape any way you want. And Loupe tops most other programs with a wide range of shapes. There are animals, hearts, geometrical shapes, characters from multiple languages and even ASCII characters! In addition, you can arrange images into any word or phrase.

Try out Shape Collage

Shape Collage Online is a web application that takes photos from anywhere on the web and automatically creates a photo collage in a number of different shapes, such as a rectangle, heart, cat, or a word. These collages can then be posted on a blog, website, emailed, used as a desktop wallpaper, etc. Amazingly easy to create collages!

Besides the aesthetic nature of these collages, they can also serve as image browsing tools because the individual photos in these online collages can be clicked to take you to the high resolution photo or the webpage that was linked to by the original image. This is particularly interesting when you use images from sites like YouTube, Amazon, eBay, or news websites, because it lets you visually scan through a large number of videos, shopping items, or news articles very quickly, and then you can click on the ones that interest you.

Mazaika Photo mosaic software

Using Mazaika you can make professional looking mosaic pictures from almost any kind and type of image files. Mazaika is the ONLY photo mosaic application that allows manual changes to every single tile in the finished mosaic. If you don't like an image, substitute it with another matching candidate image! You could even insert specific images as a sort of personal signature, or as a hidden picture riddle (as in a "Where are they?" puzzle book). Or you might need to make sure that a particularly well-liked image is not passed over as a tile; for example that Uncle Bob appears somewhere in your final mosaic. Wherea most of the mosaic and collage tools we have reviewed are web based, Mazaika is released as shareware software you download - including a free trial version.

Frintr

Frintr creates a collage of all your friend's profile pictures and tries to arrange them in such a way that when viewed from a distance they appear to form another image, most often your own profile picture. For best results you will need at least 50 friends, the more friends, the more profile pictures you can use and so the more detailed and less repetitive the final collaged Frint will appear.You can make as many low resolution (600x600) collages as you want, free of charge, if you'd like a higher resolution version then you can pay for a digital download or have an A3 print posted to you. As you can see in the comments - it's still evolving, but I like the potential.

I am a big sports fan and the Tabblo-Poster Collages would be ideal...I hope HP brings the service back. Very useful list of photo editing softwares and services.

It can easily combine several digital photos into one, copying part of one photo and pasting it into another by using your image-editing software.
