Make Hexagon Collage

Hexagons are often called nature’s perfect shape because they naturally appear in so many places — beehive honeycombs, molecular structures etc. They are amazingly eye-catching and perfect for your photo collages!

How much time do you think would it take to make a photo collage similar to the one above?

With TurboCollage, it would take a couple of minutes and no design expertise to make such a hexagon collage. 

This post will show you how to make 2 types of hexagon collages — freeform like the one above and regular hexagon collage. 

Here're some sample hexagon collages you can make:

Make a Regular Hexagon Collage

A regular hexagon collage arranges pictures in a fixed pattern of equal-sized cells. It is possible to keep some cells empty to develop some fresh photo arrangements. You can use the hexagon shape shown in either of the two sample images below.
