Loupe Collage – 11 Best Shape Photo Collage Ideas [Review+Tutorial]

Let me introduce to you Loupe, a new web photo app. It has been recently launched by the Shape Collage team.

What is Loupe?

Loupe is an online photo collage generator designed to make shape collages for birthdays, anniversary gifts, family photo collages and any memorable events. It will be also useful for learning photography art among preshool children and kindergarten kids. Toddlers and their parents will be encouraged by the easiness of the collage maker freeware and the vast array of designs and ready templates.

The main Loupe principle is that it organizes a bunch of photos into a certain shape. Photos should be evenly spread over the page forming the selected figure. If you are not satisfied with the automatic result you can edit the collage: delete a specific photo and move images across the page the way you like.

Loupe amazes with an impressive range of shapes. There are various geometrical objects, animals, different forms of hearts, popular symbols including characters from other languages and even ASCII characters like ♥, ♫, ☼, and π! Besides, you can arrange images into any word. In the shape tab choose the Text option and type in any word or a phrase. Thus the word will be spelled out of a pile of photos.

Loupe Collage Review Summary


  1. fast and easy
  2. fun
  3. creative
  4. cross-platform
  5. easy even for toddlers


1. a watermark
All collages made with Loupe are watermarked. To get rid of the annoying Loupe signature it is necessary to use Shape Collage Pro.

2. a lack of photo editing features
To add a text or a filter you must use another photo editing program like MS Paint, Adobe Photoshop, PhotoScape, GIMP, etc.

Though Loupe’s shortcomings look rather serious I have fallen in love with the new web app at first sight. It gives everybody much fun and inspiration. No doubt you should give it a try.
