How does it Work?


Create fun, one-of-a-kind layouts by remixing your own photos and sharing them with your friends. Choose photos from your camera roll—or use the built-in Photo Booth to take spur-of-the-moment shots—and instantly see them laid out in various combinations. Pick the layout you like best, then edit it to make it your own. Layout's smooth, intuitive process gives you complete creative control. Tap to mirror, flip or replace images, hold and drag to swap them, pinch to zoom in or out, or pull the handles to resize. You're the editor, so get creative—tell a story, show off an outfit or just splice, dice and change the look of your regular photos to convey a mood or theme. FEATURES * Re-mix up to 9 of your photos at a time to create fun, personalized layouts. * Use the Faces tab to quickly find photos with people in them. * Capture the moment in Photo Booth mode with quick, spontaneous shots. * Save your layouts to your camera roll and share them seamlessly to Instagram or other networks. * Easily see the last 30 photos you've selected in the Recents tab. * Pair your layouts with Instagram's filters and creative tools afterwards to make them stand out even more. * Download and start creating immediately. No signup or account required—and no clutter breaking up your flow.

  • Needs a fix to let you start over


    By Lurkling
    Let me just say that I have used this all the time, and would give it 5 stars, until an update that broke something. So one of the more recent updates, not sure which one, made it so that you can’t get back to the starting screen. You have to close the app. It added extra steps into selecting photos and making your layout. And I’m not really sure why? From a user experience perspective, it makes zero sense— Because not only does it add the extra steps, but there’s no way to clear the selection and start over. You can’t access your photo roll, if you click on recents it only has the things you recently selected. Which I find to be completely unuseful. It’s the GUI equivalent of a keyboard trap. I was hoping that maybe the logo or something else would let me clear the selection and access my photo roll once more. But there doesn’t appear to be any way to do this. I am super bummed that I have to close the app every time just to get a pop-up to ask if I want to clear my selection and use different photos. If something was done to address this, I would totally give this 6 stars! I use this app all the time and I’m really disappointed that the functionality has been crippled in this way. (The reason I’m not sure which update caused this change is because I hadn’t installed any of the updates for a while. But had to recently when I upgraded my phone.)
  • So close . . . and yet so very FAR!

    Having the Layout app was having the slayout slap, towering in comparison against similar collage apps—since 2015 for me! I finally ditched my iPhone 6 for a 12 pro max (not just to get a new phone but because my 6 did not play well with others [so many new technologies, like my watch & home pod)]. Now—maybe because my new phone’s so slick? 🤔—Layout crashes repeatedly and to the point where I have yet completed one collage. I can choose photos and a configuration; sometimes, I get as far as sizing and placing pics where I want. Then, CRASH! Oh the HUMANITY!! Layout, clean up your act and feel your self worth! You are better than this and you are widely loved by loyal users! Make like a sailor and get your ship together before we make like shepherds and get the flock outta here!
  • Quick and easy


    By whatwerks
    I just used this app for the first time. I liked it a lot as it was quick and easy for me. The reason I did not give it five stars is because I wanted a layout configuration I did not see and couldn’t figure out as quickly how to get it or create it myself: a rectangle on the left with two boxes (probably squares) on the right. In the end the larger rectangle on the left with the slimmer one on the right worked better, I think for what I’m doing, but I want full flexibility to create on the screen what I envision in my mind. This may be just a function of my lack of familiarity with the software, and lack of sufficient time to look it up. Thus, I stand by my rating as the rest of the functionality was... Quick and easy.😆
  • Layout better then Just Good


    By woriiisikin
    The Layout app is a creative way to download more than 1 photo to other apps allowing photos to be shared. Layout allows you to pick, edit & share your favorite photos in the format you select. Layout is a great tool, easy to use & quick to apply. Layout users can format photo layouts at their leisure & save as single photos. Download your saved Layout photos at a moments notice to create books, cards & other creative ideas. The only downside to this app- you can’t add text, emojis, stickers or background coloring. If Layout offered the above mentioned items it would appeal to the modern day scrapbooker using today’s technology, making Layout a 5 star app.
  • Unassuming, Humble, Effective, Reliable


    By munchero ryan
    The Layout app has always been there for you. It’s the friend you’ve always had, but never fully appreciated. Always been free — no motive but to assist you in your mobile collaging endeavors, be they in Instagram or others. From the moment it was born its was a separated concern in spirit from general commercial interests. The humble Layout app merely wishes you the best in your daily rituals. Being a loss leader, It hopes you will use it for Instagram but is equally happy just to juxtapose any of your captures for any ultimately square format. Layout app, you are a shining star in the field of ad-laden, subscription poisoned money grabs. Thank you for being you.
  • A few quirks


    By SellitagainSam
    I love this app; I use it every day for my online selling pictures. But it does suddenly close on me at least 1 -2 times a day and loses the content I’d been just editing. The other thing I’d like to see would be more control over the size of an image with an the frame of a multi frame layout. There’s a bit now, but I’d like more. Lastly, when switching/dragging more than two frames into different spots it will sometimes “freeze”; I can’t find an image to drag or it freezes into frames that only show the image partially. So a few kinks, but overall I love and need what this app allows me to do; thank you.
  • Simple and easy to use.


    By lil_jj96
    This app is very cool! Absolutely love it! It’s cool how you can combine multiple photos into one collage/layout. Once you’ve chosen all your photos you are then taken to another screen where you can re-order them or position them how you like. You can move them around, flip them, adjust them (make them bigger or smaller within the collage), adjust the brightness etc... and then after all your edits are done it takes you to another screen where you can post them to your social media like Facebook or Instagram! Love this app! Others may too! Highly recommended!
  • Love hate relationship


    By munky bee
    Love.. it’s a fickle thing in itself ... this app is a conundrum I love it and I hate it... it gives you this amazing app with so many different ways to slice and dice my photos but it randomly crashes and as if that’s not bad enough already it doesn’t always save them when it is supposed to I have tried to learn to randomly save my progress as I go along so that maybe I wouldn’t have so much trouble trying to go back and piece them together the way I had originally liked but poof they’re gone and what you thought you saved is not there and you are left two hours of wasted time and nothing to show for it... heart wrenching and painful to say the least... please help lol
  • Instagram is the magnum opus of apps


    By Gus Malveaux
    I loved MySpace until The Zuch came along and created his mini world which has its limits. And then Instagram happened. That was the moment that I fell in love with photography. There’s nothing more satisfying than walking around the city that you are not familiar with and exploring it with your camera. As I got older I discovered that I could manipulate the algorithm so that I Instagram became marketing tool, a way for me to engage with other professionals in my field and learn incidental and up-and-coming information that was coming down the pipeline. Of course you can always look at cat pictures too.
  • Not sure right now

    Layout has been a massive piece of a large art puzzle I've been uncovering over the past year. The convenience and speed of stitching photos together played to a larger aspect of my art that I was in desperate need of. It crashes. It didn't always, but it crashes when I scroll from left to right through the layout templates. The single most important aspect of this app, to me as an artist, was the convenience of resizing and combining different pieces without interruption. Now that's all it does. I have no clue how to ask about this other than through a review. This app was a cornerstone of my work over the past year and for some reason that's gone.
