Quickly Combine Pictures with Quick Picture Tools’ Combine Images

Screen Shot 2014-08-24 at 3.40.33 PMThere are a lot of tools out there for editing images, whether you need to do intensive edits or simple changes. But, sometimes if you have a simple task, heavy duty tools are too complicated and time consuming to be useful, and all you really want and need is a basic image editing tool. When I recently needed to create simple side-by-side image comparisons I found just such a tool in Combine Images. Part of the Quick Picture Tools suite, this tool is very narrowly focused: its sole purpose is allowing users to combine up to four images into a single image file. However, despite its simplicity, it offers a wide range of features that make customizing your final image very straightforward.

Using Combine Images, you can add up to four different pictures to your final collage and can upload JPEGs, PNGs and GIFs. Once you have uploaded an image, you can specify the height and width at which you would like them to be displayed, though you cannot include images with height or width of greater than 2000 pixels. You can also specify that the same ratio be used for all of the images. The look of the final collage can also be customized by changing the background color, adding padding between each of the images, increasing the outer margin on the image, or rounding the corners of the images. Text can also be added to the image and moved around to get the perfect placement. Finished images can be generated as either JPEGs or PNGs. This is a great tool for quickly making simple combinations of photos.
