Now with video! Do amazing things with photos & text using ImageChef. Use our amazing photo and text templates, or arrange text and stickers manually. Output as images, animated GIF, or videos that you can post to Instagram.


Photo Templates
Drop your photo into a series in scenes such as a wanted poster, billboard, picture frame and many more. Also browse and download animated frames and collages generated by community members. Some frames support up to four photos combined in unique ways.

Text Templates
Start with a brief phrase or a name, and watch your text instantly transformed into a message written on the sand in the beach, printed on a billboard and more. Over 40 text templates are included and new ones are featured weekly.

Visual Poetry
Your words are arranged into a shape of your choosing such as a heart, skull or star. Customize colors and styles.

'Sketchpad' Collage Tools
Anywhere in the app, click the 'magic wand' icon to add text and stickers on top of the your image. Drag your finger to reposition and scale each element. If you want video output, when saving you can pick from one of three different animation styles that control how the stickers appear and move.

With integration to the community site, you can connect to friends on ImageChef and see their posts in a shared feed. Photo frames you design with the Sketchpad tool at can be used in this app.

Want the best ImageChef experience? You may be interested in ImageChef+ which has more text templates, no ads, higher resolution support as well as no watermarks on the video output. Search ImageChef+ to find it.
