    Hi all,

    Sorry if this is a silly question (with an easy answer) but I would like to be able to create something for my sister with some pictures she has had taken with her new baby. I've attached what I want to achieve below.

    I want to use a main photo and then lay three pictures on top of it. I have Aperture but cannot seem to do it / dont know if its possible with Aperture.

    Is it possible or is there another better piece of software to use?

    Thanks for any help

    I dont use Aperture so not sure on that end, but if this is a one off thing you may be better off using an online service like or

    Pixelmator is probably your best bet and is fairly straight forward if you're familiar with working with layers. You can use it to add text as well.

    Do your individual shot editing in Aperture first then use Pixelmator for the final layout.

    Pixelmator is also one of the best bargains on the App Store.

    I agree with previous posters too, but maybe if its a simple collage, a free option is that you can create one on, save the newly created image and print as you normally would.
