Step 2: Select the Pictures

In the Photos app, navigate to the album containing the pictures you want to put side by side. Once you are in the desired album, tap on Select located at the top-right corner of the screen.

A selection circle will appear in the top-left corner of each picture. Tap on each picture that you want to include in your side-by-side arrangement. As you select a picture, a blue checkmark will appear in its selection circle.


  • You can select up to two pictures for this tutorial.
  • The order in which you select the pictures will determine their arrangement from left to right.

Step 3: Create a Side-by-Side Arrangement

After selecting your desired pictures, tap on Share located at the bottom-left corner of the screen. This will open a menu with various sharing options.

In this menu, scroll horizontally until you find and tap on Create Watch Face. This option may be hidden depending on your iPhone model and iOS version, so make sure to look for it carefully.


  • If you don’t see the Create Watch Face option, try tapping on More to reveal additional options.
  • If you still can’t find it, you may need to update your iPhone’s software to the latest version.

Step 4: Adjust the Side-by-Side Layout

After tapping on Create Watch Face, you will be taken to the watch face editor. Here, you can adjust the layout of your side-by-side pictures.

To change the layout, swipe left or right on the preview until you find a desired layout that puts your pictures side by side. You can choose from a variety of layouts such as vertical, horizontal, and diagonal arrangements.


  • The available layouts may vary depending on your iPhone model and iOS version.
  • You can also customize other aspects of the watch face like complications and colors if desired.

Step 5: Apply and Enjoy!

Once you are satisfied with the layout, tap on Add located at the top-right corner of the screen. This will apply the side-by-side arrangement as your new watch face.

Congratulations! You have successfully put two pictures side by side on your iPhone using the built-in Photos app. Now every time you check your watch face, you’ll be greeted with this personalized arrangement.

Note: If at any point you want to change or remove the side-by-side arrangement, simply go back to the Photos app and follow these steps again with different pictures or layouts.

We hope this tutorial was helpful in achieving your desired picture arrangement. Enjoy your customized watch face and have fun exploring other features of your iPhone!
