Photo frames are a great way of preserving memories of your loved ones and memorable moments.

Framing a heart photo collage starts with three things - the heart collage, the photo frame, and the space where you intend to place the frame.

You'd like to choose those three considering the aesthetic you want to create.

Suppose you are showcasing happy moments. In that case, you can choose a frame with bright colours and create a heart collage with pictures of happy moments.

You'd select a frame with size as per the amount of space you've got to put it.

Once you've selected the frame size, make the heart collage in that size. FigrCollage comes with a wide range of standard sizes, and you can also create a personalized size by specifying dimensions.

Once you've designed the collage, print it on a paper of the right size and place the print inside the selected photo frame.
