Montage Maker

Montage Maker

Montage Maker is a fun tool that lets you create large, colourful montages of any topic using images sourced from the internet. Not only is it an interesting way of browsing the net, it can also be used to create desktop pictures or even posters.

Things to try:

  • Use the settings to change the grid size of your montage
  • Change the size of your montage by resizing your browser window
  • Want to publish your montage? Check 'Creative commons' to make a montage using images that have a Creative Commons license.

Note: This tool was previously called Montage-a-google but has been updated to fetch images from Flickr instead of Google – which is more reliable and faster to fetch a range of image sizes. Also, this version no longer requires the Flash plugin.

    1. Montage Maker seems to be having troubles in Internet Explorer. If you can, I suggest using one of the other popular browsers out there such as Firefox or Chrome.

  1. Absolutely love the idea.
    Just curious about whether it is possible to restrict the results to only include 1 image from a particular site/flickr user? This would be great for showing variety.

  2. Great Project! Last time I visited I was able to find images of myself, other artist and just so many more than today. I just get the “no images found try again” Even the ones available are few, even when using the “unique” option.

    Were you slapped with some sort of restrictions, is there a “bug” or has the project just became very limited for some other reason? Disappointing.

    1. How long has it been since you last visited? Montage Maker now uses Flickr’s photo API, so that might explain the changes in what you’re seeing.
