How to Put 2 Pictures side by side on iPhone & iPad

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

A quick note: Collage apps are not what we want. 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 the Photoshop Mix 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. Select “Image”, then choose “On my iPhone” to choose the photo from your Photos app. When the app asks for permission to access your photos, tap “OK”. You will be able to select images from your Camera Roll and other albums.

Step 3: Next, tap on the + button on the right side, select “Image” to add a new image layer. Just select the second photo.

Step 4: Now two photos have been added to the canvas as two layers. Tap on the resize button as in the screenshot, then you can resize the canvas so its width and length will fit two component pictures.

Step 5: Go back to the editor, tap and pinch your fingers to resize each photo, then tap and drag them to put them side by side. When two images are set, tap the resize button again and adjust the canvas size to remove the blank area left.

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 any 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.
