Facebook is a social media platform that you can use to connect to other people who have their own Facebook accounts.
You can use this to share photos, videos, and communicate with other people. All you have to do is sign up and set up your profile.
You can add people as your friends by clicking on their profile and click the Add as Friend button.
Signing up is free, but you are required to be at least 13 years old in order to create your account.
Posting photos are a very well-known feature of Facebook other than messaging your friends and family.
How to Create a Facebook Post
But there are only a few edits you can make before you post your photo. You can only change the effects, filters, and size of your photos.
You can also add texts, music, sketches, and even tag other accounts. However, you cannot collage photos to form one photo.
So what if you wanted to just combine two photos into one and put them side-by-side?
How to put Pictures Side by Side on Facebook?
Since Facebook does not directly give you the option to put pictures side-by-side before publishing them, you can only use photo editing software or tools to edit your photos.
Below is some photo editing software that you can use.
Canva is a free design tool that you can use to create your own design and edit your photo. Choose Facebook post so that the dimension will automatically set to the right size. You can use it to upload the photos that you want to put side-by-side and start editing.
Adobe Photoshop is paid Photo & Design Software that you can also use to edit your photos. You just have to choose the right dimension of the Facebook post, which is 1200 x 630 px.
Fotor is another software that you can download to edit your photos. You can start your free trial and choose the collage template you wish to use.
Can I put my photos side-by-side without using any other photo editing tools listed above?
