Pixplit is not your average photo collage app. While users can create content on their own, the app also allows user to work with others to build collaborative collages. Users have the option of publishing both incomplete and completed creations, and there are quite a few different presentation and “splitting” options from which users can choose to customize how they want their photos to be cut and cropped. Pixplit brings the social world and the creative world together, as friends can work together on a photo collage, combining pictures from their own collections that work well with what others have added to the existing frames. There are a set of custom filters for users to choose from, similar the Instagram’s selection, where users can manipulate the color and contrast of their photographs. Due to the social nature of the app, it is only recommended for use with children ages 10 and older and all activity should be monitored by and adult.

this app is good for kids who need help with:


Because Pixplit encourages users to combine a collection of images in a way that is both expressive and meaningful, users should be creative and open-minded in their approach. Especially if they are adding to existing submissions, users must think creatively, either by scouring the internet for an image that fits, or searching through their camera roll for a suitable picture. Users can make a photograph humorous, satirical, or dramatic simply by adding an appropriate photograph. Every time users browse the images in "Gallery," they should begin with a "blank slate." Many of the best photo collages within the app take unorthodox approaches to the subject matter, so experimenting with different photos helps create something truly unique.


It's important that users fully understand the potential of Pixplit's social element before making edits and additions to uploaded photographs. Once a users adds a photo to the college, it becomes a visible part of the public photo steam. Therefore, users should demonstrate good taste and mindfulness whenever they make any post that is not private. Of course, users have the option of uploading pictures of their own without making them public. But Pixplit really isn't a singular experience, and is at its best when operating with a community of creative individuals.  Users can even "split" images that are already complete, allowing them to add their personal touch to completed collages. Pictures can be shared on Facebook and Twitter, as can even be posted to Instagram for further edits. Users are also encouraged to write comments and like pictures that they are particularly fond of. But it's all about demonstrating good taste, and making another user's photograph significantly better with each contribution.
