Create online or use our app?
You can create your wall art in our online creator tool or in our smartphone app. Whether you choose to create your wall art on your computer or on your phone you’ll have 29 background colours available and can easily change the orientation and size.
The online creator tool has more margin options so you’ll have more control over the spacing of your layout and the app allows you to save your projects and come back later. If you want to get creative on your phone, find out about our recent app updates that will make creating wall art in the app even easier.
Life’s little moments
Create a wall art layout with lots of photos. In the online creator tool you can use up to 15 photos in one wall art and in the mobile app it’s nine so there are so many ways you can display your moments. Use low resolution photos from your phone to create a series of small wall arts – perfect in living spaces.
Wall art that tells a story
When you attend an event like a wedding or go on holiday it’s not unusual to have a whole camera roll filled with moments from the day or week. To save yourself choosing just one, opt for a wall art layout that allows you to tell a story. A series of your favourite photos showcases more than just one moment.
If you have your photos saved in order on your device it will be simple to choose a series to feature. We’ve created the ultimate guide to organising your photos to make this easier than ever.
Get creative with colours
Your wall art should be an extension of your taste so when you’re creating it consider using a colour scheme that will match the décor in your home. Bright colours and eye-catching backgrounds are perfect for light and breezy living spaces while a series of black and white photos will look great in a modern home.
Words and quotes
Add words or quotes to your photos using one of our favourite photo editing apps before uploading it to the creator tool. Or create wall art in the app and add text directly to your photo thanks to a recent update. Perhaps try some inspiring life advice on a holiday photo…
If you’ve taken a photo of a building or landscape it can be nice to zoom in on a specific detail in the photo for an unusual result that you won’t see anywhere else. We love close-up photos of tiles and interesting textures from nature. The lines on a leaf or the details in bark on a tree also work well. Take a look at our urban photography tips for some more inspiration.
