Make a Number 1 Shaped Photo Collage - Step by Step Instructions

Let's see how to make a collage for number 1. You can make a collage for any other number using similar steps.

We'll use screenshots of the Windows PC app for this demo. Still, Mac users can follow the same steps because the interface and functionality are similar on both platforms.

Number one photo collage

1. Open FigrCollage software, and click "Use Text" as the shape as shown in the screenshot below. Enter any number that you want to turn into a photo collage. For this example, we will use number 1. You can also set a font for the selected number.
