2. Since we're combining photos horizontally, we need a wide output size. In this demo, we’ve used a 18 inches wide and 6 inches high size. Learn more about output sizes.

3. As we plan to join photos horizontally, set the number of rows to 1 and the number of columns to the number of pictures. For this example, we’ll combine four pictures — you can combine any number of pictures.

4. Fill photos in cells. To select a picture for a cell, click the picture picker and choose an image. You can also add pictures in one go by clicking the "+" button on the Pictures tab. Learn more about adding photos to your collage.
