How to make a photo collage in Photoshop CC

Learning how to make a photo collage in Photoshop will come in handy in lots of different situations. Individual photos capture single moments in time, but invoke a collage and you'll be able to illustrate a whole story, archiving a treasured family holiday or creating a megamix of memories for a partner's birthday. Collating a collage is also a great test of your composition skills.

There are collage maker apps in abundance out there, but Photoshop CC will give you even more control. It allows you to complete the whole process using just one app, and that includes any image adjustments needed. (For some of the best apps, see our roundup of the best collage maker tools out there.)
