Photos- Tools for collages, picture sharing and editing

Tools for photo sharing, creation of collages, editing of photos, using quotes on pictures, and templates for profiles on social media.




Canva makes design simple for everyone. Create designs for Web or print: blog graphics, presentations, Facebook covers, flyers, posters, invitations and so much more.

With Canva you get thousands of templates- some are free, many are $1.00 each. It's easy to create stunning pieces of design from their set up- but you need to be creative if you're going to do so without running up your bill.

Their set up is pretty extensive with layouts, text versions that would usually be professional, backgrounds, elements, and of course the ability for you to upload your own photos.

The short answer with Canva is you can create beautiful projects, but know going in that you may either have to sacrifice the dream choice or you'll need to pay for it...

Flickr sells photo books and wall art from your photos or from Flickr collections (it's very unclear what's included or which photos are allowed to be sold to others versus your own photos).

  • Editing of photo book: this is a pretty simple photo book- you can change the book's title, adjust images in the book (but we don't see anything about text or collages) and add, remove or rearrange photos in the order of which they will go into the book
