A search for heavy resonances decaying into two photons in the ATLAS experiment is presented. The analysis uses proton-proton collision data accumulated at the Large Hadron Collider during 2015 and 2016 with a corresponding luminosity of 36.7 fb^{-1} at 13 TeV. Two searches are shown, a search for spin-0 particles using a heavy Higgs-like particle as a benchmark model, and a search for spin-2 particles using a Randall-Sundrum graviton as a benchmark model. Limits on the production cross section times branching ratio to two photons for the two resonance types are reported.
