PicMonkey is a very intuitive collage maker that lets you open multiple images at once from your computer, Dropbox, Facebook, or Flickr, and you can share your collage to places like Tumbr and Pinterest or via email.
You can switch between more than 20 collage layouts at any time, and the photos you've already added to the collage will automatically adjust to the new layout. You also can make your own layout by simply dragging and dropping photos anywhere you want them.
Collages can be sized to a custom pixel height and width, and the background spacing can be adjusted and colored or left transparent. You also can make the corners of the images round.
The rotation and exposure of each individual photo can be modified, and you can open the whole collage in the PicMonkey online photo editor for further enhancements.
BeFunky is another wonderful online collage maker that lets you edit in fullscreen mode for a greater work area.
About 100 templates are available with even more options if you choose to pay for them. Of the free ones, there are layouts made specifically for birthday cards, Facebook covers, Pinterest, baby showers, and more.
