Sometimes you may want to put two pictures side by side on your iphone, or maybe you have more than one great picture and need to decide which one to save. Using various apps, you can easily combine photos on iphone to make a photo strip or a grid collage. If you don’t want to download a new app, there are also online web tools that can help you with this task. The most popular is probably Photojoiner – it allows you to upload multiple images from your camera roll, iCloud or other apps and then merge them into one.

Apple’s official iOS app, Shortcuts, also has an action that can be used to put two photos together on your iPhone. The shortcut is simple to create, but you’ll need to have an iPhone with iOS 11 or higher and allow shared shortcuts first. To enable this, go to your iPhone’s Settings, tap “Shortcuts,” then scroll down and tap the blue button that says “Allow Untrusted Shortcuts.” Once you do this, you can run the Combine Images shortcut whenever you want.

Another option is Pic Stitch, a free third-party photo and video collage maker. It’s a great alternative to the Shortcuts app method, as it gives you more flexibility in your image combinations and lets you use different layout styles and backgrounds for your collages. It’s also easier to use than the Shortcuts app method, since it doesn’t require you to create a shortcut or open the app.
