Once you've hit save, the shiny new custom collage will immediately appear in your Google Photos gallery. All the original images will remain unaffected.

Play around with all the different frames available to discover your favorite styles. If you're using the Google Photos app on a Pixel device or you are subscribed to the Google One plan, you'll see 30 extra designs for collages. And of course, more frames and styles will be added over time. This applies to all users, Google One subscription or not.

Google's photo editor is top-notch

Google Photos is an incredible image editor with extensive filters and tools. The app is free for all Android phones, but you get so many extra features if you have a Google Pixel phone or a Google One subscription. Install the app if you haven't already to take advantage of all its cool functions.

Even if you're not a Google One subscriber, you still get 15GB of free cloud storage for free. This includes Google Drive, Gmail, and all other Google services, so make sure you utilize it cautiously. The Photos app allows you to back up images in a compressed quality to reduce the amount of space they take up to help conserve that 15GB.
