FotoJet is easy to use, doesn't require any software downloads, won't save with a watermark, and isn't cluttered with lots of tools and unnecessary screens.

The collage layouts here are organized in sections called Classic Collages, Creative Collages, and Misc. Some of them include art, 3D, poster, photo card, comic, and frame layouts. There's also a classic photo grid layout like how you see most collages.

Images can be edited directly from the collage with the built-in image editing tools. They aren't as robust as a true image editor, but they do let you make quick changes, such as by flipping and rotating, changing the size, applying a filter, and modifying exposure, saturation, brightness, opacity, and more.

There's also a text tool, clipart you can freely use, and several background options.

Images can be imported from your computer, taken with a webcam, or copied from your Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Google Drive, or Dropbox account. There also are many images freely available from piZap. However, only one picture at a time can be uploaded, so it might take a little longer to create a collage than with some other collage makers.

The background is editable and can feature any color or photo. You also can edit the borders and round their corners of the images you’ve added.

Dozens of effects are just a click away, so you can add a nice touch to the entire collage. There are also per-photo editing tools, frames, stickers, a cut out tool, text boxes, a paintbrush, and a meme generator all built into this collage maker.

Ribbet

Ribbet lets you make a collage in a modern editor that's super simple to use. However, there are several features available only to subscribers, so free users will run into some limitations.

However, you can upload images from your computer only, and only one at a time. Some other severe limitations put in place for free users includes the inability to go full screen, no option to save the images you upload (they disappear once you add them to the collage), very few layouts to pick from, and

Photovisi

Photovisi collage example

Photovisi is another neat collage maker that's totally free if you don't mind the watermark it places on your image when you're done. You're also limited to downloading a low-resolution version of the collage unless you want to pay for premium.

This collage maker site has lots of unique customization options that you won't find in other collage makers. There are several collage layouts, such as Vintage Colors, Overlapping Fade, Fenced In, Summer Beach, and Love On a Line.

What I like most about these layouts is that they're super flexible, so what you end up making won't look like every other collage out there. If you're wanting really interesting designs, Photovisi is the collage maker to try.
