Chapter 10. Collage Effects

If you think it’s hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

—Jack Lemmon

In Photoshop, you can do more than adjust, tone, and paint images. You can create an entirely new image by blending diverse visual elements into one big picture, called compositing or image blending. This is where Photoshop really gets to strut its stuff, and where you can put your creative agility to the test. The possibilities with compositing are truly boundless. With Photoshop, all you need is your imagination and a bag full of good collage techniques.
