It is not always possible to embody an artistic idea in a photograph, and in order to create an interesting composition and an original story of the photo, it is often necessary to add new elements or, on the contrary, remove them, i. e. , make a photo montage.
The photo montage includes:
- Add, remove, or edit objects, people, or graphic elements;
- Editing multiple photos into one;
- Change of clothes, hairstyle, face;
- Special effects, changing the background, adding text elements;
- Moving the objects of the snapshot composition;
Collage is one of the methods of obtaining high-quality and original photos. Creating a collage in Photoshop involves combining various illustrations, photos, or images into a single composition.
The process of creating a collage includes:
- Development of the idea and artistic concept of the collage;
- Change the background or delete it;
- Add or remove new items;
- Use of special effects.
Collages have a strong impact on human emotions and have a colossal aesthetic effect.
Collages are used in advertising, in the production of souvenirs (calendars, T-shirts, tableware) and POS materials.
