NEW YORK (AP) — Instagram's latest stand-alone app, released Monday, lets users combine multiple photos and post them as a single image.

Called Layout, it is the second app that Facebook-owned Instagram has released. Last August, it came out with Hyperlapse, which lets users create time-lapse videos to share on Instagram.

Layout lets users choose custom layouts for photo collages, rearranging the images and adjusting their size and shape. A feature called Faces shows users all the photos in their camera that feature people. Another tool, called Photo Booth, works like a real-life photo booth, counting down to capture photos instantly.

The app is available for iOS devices, and Instagram says it will be available for Android devices in the coming months.
