Complement your collage with images from our stock photo library

What better way to start your collage than with pictures of the musicians themselves? It's simple to upload photos from your own collection of band artwork, album covers, music video stills, or anything you can imagine.

Complement your own photos with mood-setting images from our expansive collections of over 1 million stock photos, illustrations, and design elements. Search for images of ticket stubs, glowsticks, or sunburst Stratocasters to fill our your collage and express the music you love. With plenty of photos available for free and premium photos available for only a small cost, there’s no reason not to hit every note.

Customize your photos

Get the mood you envision for your collage using the built-in photo editor.

Stylize the selfies of your KPop idols using photo effects and filters. Draw attention to any member of a band with the Auto Focus tool. Use Auto Enhance to amplify (or subdue) the hues in a rockstar’s portrait. If the concert photos look dark or dull, you can easily adjust the brightness, saturation, contrast, and more. And with Canva Pro’s background remover, you can elevate every photo taken backstage.

Print your music collage to adorn your walls

Sure, the Jim Morrison poster in your dorm room is wicked cool, by why not decorate your space with a music poster of your own design? Every Canva design looks great in print, and we make it easy to download your collage as a high-quality PDF, ready to hand off to a print professional.
