Put two pictures side by side on iPhone and iPad

Want to join two photos or multiple photos together using your iPhone? This article will teach you how to do it!

You may have heard of putting two photos side by side using some collage apps. Actually, most of these apps will divide a canvas into multiple panes with fixed width and height. It means you have to crop and adjust your photos to make them fit into those panes.

It’s obviously not what we want to do, we want to adjust the canvas and join our photos fully into one. Below are the two easiest methods you can use right now.


#1 – Using an app

The app I’m going to use in this article is Photoshop Mix. It’s a free photo editing application for iOS devices provided by Adobe. Here’s how to use it to combine two photos (or multiple photos) into one on iPhone.

Step 1: Install Photoshop Mix from the App Store. Then launch the app and sign in, you can quickly sign in with your Facebook or Google account.

Step 2: Tap the + button at the top-right corner of the screen to create a new project. Then select “Image”, choose the first photo that you would like to join with others.

Step 3: Next, tap on the + button on the right side, select “Image” to add a new image layer. Just select the second photo. Now two photos have been added to the canvas as two layers.

Step 4: Tap on the resize button as in the screenshot, then you can resize the canvas to fit two images.

Go back to the editor, tap and drag one photo to put them side by side. You can also pinch your fingers to resize each photo as well.

Once you’re satisfied with the result, tap the Share button, then select “Camera Roll” to save the new image.


#2 – Merge photos online

There are plenty of websites that allow you to merge photos online. This method is simple and quick since you don’t need to install an extra application.

You can use a tool like Pinetool. Launch Safari on your iPhone or iPad, then go to the website.

The tool only allows you to merge two images. Once you’ve loaded the website, just select images you wish to put together. Under the options area, you can choose how to position the image (vertically or horizontally), how to adjust the size of the images (useful when two images are different in height).

Finally, tap the Merge button at the bottom of the page. Once the new image is generated, it will appear in the Output image section. Just tap and hold on the new image, then select “Save Image” to save it to your Camera Roll.


That’s how you can combine two photos into one using an iPhone or iPad. Do you know any other way that is quick and efficient? Please let us know in the comment below.
