How to Combine Photos on iPhone or iPad

Apple iOS is a powerful operating system but they don’t have an advanced photo editor to combine photos on iPhone. You have to download a third-party photo editor to merge photos on iPhone or iPad and there are plenty of free apps available out there. We will introduce a number of photo editors available for free to use and guide you on how to use them smoothly.

PS Express

Photoshop Express is an award-winning app developed by Adobe themselves. You can find another Adobe Lightroom Photoshop but it doesn’t have the feature to combine photos on your Apple device. PS Express has interesting features and have simplified the process for the beginners. We have combined three pictures into one collage and you have tons of features in it.

  • Download & install Photoshop Express in the device.
  • Tap on “COLLAGE” located at the top.
  • Find the photos that you want to add within the app and tap the photos to select it.
  • Now, you can find the selected photos in collage form.
  • You can find layouts if you take a look at the bottom menu.
  • Tap on “Save” button located at the top and then tap on “Save & Share” to save it in local storage.
  • You can find the collage in the local storage or photos app.

Adobe developed easy-to-use app for the users and you can make a good use of it. The American developer does not offer freeware to the audience and you have to pay for it. Fortunately, you can use the app in limited mode for free and it does get the job done.

Aspect Ratio

Millions of iPhone & iPad users are active on social media or other platforms. The developer added aspect ratio option for the users, where you can make the output in specific resolution. The American developer thought this thorough and brought Basic, Social Media, Print and Digital Ads option in the app.

Effects or Filters

The biggest photos & pictures social media platform Instagram went viral because of the effects or filters on the platform. PS Express has lots of effects in the arsenal and you can add effects to the image and make it look stand out. You can choose colors and style transfer to make it bright and look unique.

Multiple Layers

Adobe is calling an all-in-one photo editor, which might be not satisfying for the audience, but it does bring PRO-level features. You can add multiple layers to make it unique and add more elements. The American developer designed the app for beginners, so you have to spend an hour or so to master the controls. Play around with multiple layers and you will master the art of tweaking.

Advanced Photo Editor

PS Express is an advanced photo editor for beginners and semi-professional, who need a tool to make changes or enhance the photos. The developer has added advanced functions to change the color, saturation, vibrance, and make it unique and appealing to the users.

The premium version costs $24 per year and if you want to pay on monthly basis, then it will be $3.99. Of course, there is a three-day free trial version and after three days Apple will charge on yearly basis or monthly basis.

PS Express Alternatives

Photoshop Express might be the big-time player in the category but that’s not what everyone wants in the device. Here are some PS Express alternatives that you can try to put 2 photos together on iPhone and iPad.

Live Collage

Live Collage is one of the apps that I consider a perfect replacement because it has a straightforward user-interface and does the job for us. The developer designed the app for an iPad but it works flawlessly on iPhone as well. You have tons of customization and features that will enhance the photo output. The photo editor has tons of layouts to choose and you can add multiple photos for one grid. The app is free-to-use but you have to subscribe to premium package to unlock 2000+ layouts, effects and others.

Photo Editor

The developer has worked on the app, where you can combine photos but it looks a little outdated. We can ignore the dated user-interface because you have tons of features that gets the job done. The photo editor app equipped with effects, stickers, grids, elements, and more.

PicsArt Collage Maker

PicsArt is an old player in the Android & iOS market and they have been the progressing photo & video editor. The app developer designed the photo & video editor to be all-in-one for everyone. You can make collages or combine photos into one to make good family or friend’s fame.

You can combine photos using the apps that we have suggested here and all of them are available on Apple App Store.

Bottom Line

You can combine photos on iPhone & iPad by following our guide and suggestions. Of course, we have selected Photoshop Express as it is a popular choice among the Apple device owners and it does deliver quality output. You can try suggested alternatives like PicsArt, Live Collage and Photo Editor with limitations and get what you need for the task.
