How to Make a Circle Collage
Your friend posted a circle photo collage on Facebook, and you wonder how they made it but don't want to ask for fear of looking like a novice. Or, you're a design guru but don't like the fact that it takes so much time and effort to make one in Photoshop.
In this post, we will show you how to make a circle collage.
Anyone, with or without design experience would be able to follow this post and make a collage of circles.

2. You can size them large or small as per your wish.
Three types of circle collage
Before we learn to make a circle collage, let’s differentiate between three types of photos as shown in the following illustration:
Circle photo collage made from unequal circles
Circle photo collage made with equal circles placed in a regular pattern
Circle shape collage - photos are arranged to form the circle shape
The sample on the right constructs a circle by arranging many smaller photos. If you’re looking to make such a circle shape collage, you’d have to use our FigrCollage shape collage software.
In this post, we’ll learn to make pictures like those on the left.
