Tutorial - Free Facebook Photo Collage for Your Computer Desktop

I just happened to come across a really cool site tonight. I have so many pictures on my computer and memory cards that I haven't done anything with. All of a sudden, it's really bothering me and I want to create some books, collages, etc.

This is a free service that you can upload pictures from your facebook, flickr, or from your computer. It is super easy to make and you don't have to give them any personal information! If you would like, you can order prints of the poster collages for a pretty decent price as well.

Go to and click on "Create your poster now".

Next click Facebook InstaCollage

Choose your orientation

Now you will have to allow access to your facebook account. It will pull up all of your albums. Click the photos that you want to appear on your poster. For a good quality poster, the site recommends that you choose at least 80 photos. It seems like a lot, but I have way more than that on my page.

When you have chosen your photos, it will give you a few more options for borders, etc.

When you are finished, click on Download at the top of the page. It will allow you to save to your computer. It will automatically save with a different extension, although it is a jpg. So, you will need to save it with .jpg in order to be able to open the collage.

Go to your control panel and choose Display. Change the photo in the Desktop tab to your poster and it makes the best desktop background ever!

It will look better than it does on my blog because it is a lot bigger!
