Collaging

Perhaps the opposite of “natural” compositing is collaging—the combination of objects and images. Collages can be collections of mementos and souvenirs or the “artistic” combination of elements, such as leaves, flowers, shapes, and photographs. Although most of this chapter has concentrated on compositing images to make the end result look as realistic as possible, realism is less of a concern in collaging. Basically, you're trying to make it look artistic.

Simple collages can contain only one layer. Indeed, all the collaging may have already been done on, say, the scanner bed—you arrange a group of objects on your scanner and then scan it. If you're adept at making prescan adjustments, you might not even need to do any postscan tweaking. You can just save it and/or print it, if desired.
