Smilebox is easy to use and makes it super fun to create and customize beautiful designs for everything from Instagram stories, birthday cards, photo collages, party invitations and more.

Wherever you are, we are! The Smilebox app is available on your iPhone for designs on the go or computer for an extended product collection.


1. Choose from hundreds of designs
We have stunning card, collage, story & invitation templates that are ready-to-customize and can be shared in minutes. Scroll through our story templates at the top to find the category that fits your need—like mood, photo of the day, friends, days of the week and more. You can add photos & text to every design you see on Smilebox. You can also scroll through the occasions like birthday, baby, holidays, sympathy—we’re always adding new designs!

2. Customize text and font
Add your text, move around the text boxes, adjust fonts, size, alignment, and colors.

3. Choose background colors, patterns or frames
From funky shapes to pristine blues and every shade and pattern in between—choose a background or frame that suits your style!

4. Add photos and collages
Add up to 9 photos in every design. Either upload as separate images on the template or choose a special collage layout and add within. You can zoom in and out of each photo, move around and rotate.

5. Send it near and far
Share your stunning designs directly to Instagram (Stories or posts!), Facebook, text, email or just save to your phone for later.

6. Come back for more!
We’re always adding new templates, stickers, backgrounds and features. So any time you have a story or photo you want to share, Smilebox-it first to make sure it looks perfect!

    Smilebox is a downloadable software for PC/Mac or an iPhone (iPad) app. It allows users to quickly create a collage of images or a slideshow. It’s fairly simple to use but the app works best on the iPhone and the software has to be downloaded and installed so if you were to have students create a slideshow, another tool such as Magisto or Mixbook may make more sense.

    Smilebox has been around for years. It is an easy way for students to make a great flip book! It is really just a online scrapbook. However, the way that my students have used this is for Storytelling when they have to write and “publish” their personal story. This tool makes it easy for them to drop in pictures and easily illustrate their story. However, since students have to download this App, it is not one of my favorites.

    I chose this app because I like to personalize my photos and videos alot. I found this interesting when I was first introduced to this app and could not wait to start personalizing. The app is very easy to manage and easy to learn. I could use this app in my lesson objective to help tell a story and show pictures as I am reading a book to students. I can incorporate artwork and storytelling with this app as well and have a song to go along with the slides.
