Montage is an app for people who think outside the box. No templates are provided - you place images on an infinite canvas, where they can be edited and moved around. Everything you create with Montage is unique.
The sales pitch ends here, and what follows is a description of what you can actually do with the app:
- Put objects on an infinite canvas
Photos, text, clipart, emoji - they are your building blocks. You can place as many as you like on the canvas. Once there, they can be moved, rotated, scaled and blended together, as well as duplicated, deleted or reordered - using a variety of familiar multi-touch gestures. You can also move around the canvas and transform the entire composition at once.
- Images can take any shape
You are not limited to rectangular shapes: object can take any form, from simple geometric shapes like circles or stars, to complex shapes like blocks of text or hand drawn blobs.
- There are filters, but without presets
Choose from over 50 building blocks to build unique filters that can completely transform each element of your composition. Manipulate colours, distort geometry and emulate art styles - applied one after another, these tools can add style to any image.
- Share just the parts you want
In the end, you will most likely want to create an image - one you can share on Instagram or print out and hang on a wall. With Montage, you have full control over this process. You get to define which part of the composition you wish to export, and you can specify the image format and the exact size of the final image.
Some other features you might find interesting:
- Over 200 high quality emoji to choose from
- Mix colors and access a huge color library
- Use repeating background patterns
- Document manager with autosave and previews
- Search Flickr, Pixabay and OCAL for images
- Search ColourLovers for background patterns
- Import custom fonts

Montage is one of the oldest of the photography applications still in development: its first version was released in 2009, and there have been 5 major releases since then. Its development has been continuous and feedback driven: suggestions of people like you have helped make it what it is today. I encourage you to purchase this fine product, and afterwards, should you have any requests or problems, to contact me - many people have done so over the years, and I take pride in responding to each and every request personally.
Behold, Montage has just reached its 10 year anniversary. Highlights for this update include:
- Support new iPhone and iPad device sizes
- Fixed certain photos not showing up in the image picker
- Various minor fixes to user interface appearance and image search
- Bokeh blur filter was added
- Shake to help was removed
Ratings and Reviews
Great but could use a few improvements
There desperately needs to be an option to lock the rotation of your images. I can't do anything without making the images lopsided which is incredibly frustrating when trying to match two different edits of the same picture. I may just be using the wrong type of app for the edits I'm trying to make but it seems the developers ignored very basic pinch/zoom/rotate options. And also to lock the size of the shapes. Ill cut a shape out of an image and once it loads into the montage, it's suddenly blown up to the full size of the montage. We have the option to resize it to what we want so don't immediately enlarge it in the montage.
not one to leave reviews ever, but needed to say this is the greatest and most powerful photo editing, fun formatting, instagram cropping, meme making, anything editing app there is for mobile. it is even better functioning and more useful than anything remotely similar on a COMPUTER, save perhaps photoshop. once you play with it a bit you can make almost anything and produce at any resolution you need for whatever format. i use it professionally no sweat. it’s astonishing. have been using this on iphone since what seems like before 2010 maybe? when it first appeared in the store. might even be one of your first users. i love your app. it’s incredible. please bring it to desktop app store one day, in all its simplicity. would probably pay anything.
One of my most useful design apps
This is a really useful app. The layering and cropping are extremely well done. It’s become part of my regular workflow on the iPad and iPhone. Nothing does what this app does, so specifically and easily. It’s never failed to make my compositions happen. Combined with another app (PhotoWizard) and it’s ability to mask quickly, I’m able to do a lot of stuff that’s hard to accomplish even on a laptop. Good work.
