The point of making Insta-collages is to post them on your clients’ IG feeds, Stories, and Reels, right?

Vista Social has social media publishing, management, and photo editing features all in one solution.
The platform’s Canva integration lets you create collages and edit photos for Instagram for your clients without leaving Vista Social.
Create a new post on Vista Social’s Publisher.
On the Publisher, click the camera icon and select Design with Canva.
Choose Instagram Post or Instagram Story as your design category and click Design with Canva.
This should open the Canva editor within Vista Social, so you won’t need to switch platforms. Pretty convenient, right?
Upload images from your local drive or your client’s Facebook, Google Drive, and Google Photos accounts (if you have access).
Don’t want to create an Instagram collage from scratch? Perhaps you’d like some inspiration?
Canva’s got you covered with its customizable collage templates.
Choose your collage template (with already prepped Instagram Reels dimensions, Story and post size, and specs and ratios) and design, edit, and tweak away.
Use Canva’s photo editing tools to add filters, stock photos, backgrounds, texts, animations, GIFs, vectors, and other elements to make your clients’ collages a visual masterpiece.
Here’s another nifty trick: Use Canva’s Artificial Intelligence or AI Image Generator to create images for your client’s collage in a flash.
Click Apps on the Canva editor’s side menu and select the Text to Image option.
Describe the image you want to create, and Canva’s AI generator will make it for you in seconds.
For example, I typed in “4 panel Instagram collage showing a social media manager and team with blue theme,” and this is what the AI generator came up with:
With this handy feature, you can easily create Instagram Story, Reel, and Feed photo collages for multiple clients hassle-free.
Learning how to make a Reel with photos from scratch will be a thing of the past with this tool.

Add the finishing touches to your client’s IG collage by creating captions, using hashtags, adding labels, links, and more.
You can save the post as a draft for your client’s review before publishing, add it to a queue, or set a specific date and time to auto-publish the content.
Vista Social makes it easy to create and post Instagram collages and other social media content while managing your clients’ accounts, interactions, and engagement.

Instagram has this little rule that only lets you add one video per Story.
But we’ve got a cool workaround for you.
To create an Instagram Story with multiple videos for your clients, use awesome third-party apps like Canva or, better yet, Vista Social with its Canva integration.
The integration is like a secret weapon that unlocks all the cool SMM and photo and video editing features you need in one platform.

Help your clients effortlessly capture attention, tell engaging stories, and showcase their brand like a pro by using collages.
Remember to tailor the collages to your client’s unique style, experiment with layouts and effects, and leverage the power of user-friendly tools and apps.
