Make Scrapbooks and Photo Collages with Paper by WeTransfer
New Collage feature available now.
Amsterdam, March 2019 - WeTransfer announces a new Collage tool for sketching app Paper, available today on iOS.
With its latest release, Paper adds a highly requested feature making it possible for creators to cut and combine multiple images in a simple and intuitive manner. On a single journal page, users can cut, stick, move and fix different images at the same time - all without the fuss of complicated layers.
Alongside collaging, the tool can be used for scrapbooking, mood boarding and visual notetaking — giving users a new way to save, edit and arrange photos. Like the rest of Paper, the Collage tool is designed for touch — which means it’s quicks, intuitive, and easy to use — mirroring the tactile experience of working with scissors and glue (but without the mess).
Kris Martin, Product Manager for Paper by WeTransfer, notes:
While an army of apps have offered countless new ways to layer, retouch, and filter your photos, there’s still something missing. The simple, tangible experience of clipping and arranging images together has never been faithfully translated to our touch screens. With our latest release, Paper invites creators of all ages to rediscover the experience of cutting and combining images we all had when we were young. It’s simple, intuitive, and useful for creators of any age.
Paper by WeTransfer is the immersive sketching app for capturing ideas anywhere. Over 25 million people have found their personal creative space in Paper—handwriting notes, drafting, diagramming, sketching, and giving form to their vision.

From the beginning, WeTransfer has prioritized bringing “offline” values - trust, transparency, and ethics - online. This means having a responsible data policy and tools that don’t distract people from their creative flow. WeTransfer has pioneered a new means of online advertising, resulting in the platform’s full-page wallpapers, designed by our award-winning in-house creative studio. Advertisers include industry-leading brands like Apple, Saint Laurent, Google, Balenciaga, Samsung, Netflix, Adidas, and Squarespace.
Since its founding, WeTransfer has proudly supported the creative communities and given up to 30% of advertising space to support the arts, donating over 5 billion impressions in 2017. Through our ongoing advertising grant program and content platform, WePresent, we have partnered with hundreds of groundbreaking artists and organizations, including Björk, King Krule, FKA twigs, Ryan McGinley, Ami Vitale, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the UN Development Program, the World Wildlife Foundation and the Prince Estate. In 2016, WeTransfer launched the world’s first free Masters of the Arts in design thinking with the University of the Underground and Worldwide FM, the global radio station run by legendary BBC DJ Gilles Peterson.
Following a $25 million investment from Highland Europe in 2015, WeTransfer opened a US office in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, to add to the Amsterdam headquarters. In 2018, WeTransfer acquired popular creative apps Paper® and Paste® and expanded its US presence to New York City.
