Computer Arts Tutorials on Image Manipulation/Photo Montage

Computer Arts

1. Bring Graphic Accent to Texture Work


I like how the title conveys the meaning in the image. I like how her face has been manipulated to look very flawless.

2. Make Mural-Sized Images, Fast


I like the compositions used in this mural. The colours and shapes used are bright, yet the eyes of the audience fall on the faces in the image, which are not so bright.

3. Create a Cut and Sew Range


This image is put together with various cut outs from different omages, which is what I like about this image..It’s unique.

4. Take Your Artwork Cosmic


I like astronamy and the thought of ‘Out of This World’, which is why I find this image appealing. Also the colours and spherical shapes used together compliment the image.

I like the composition in this image because the use of colours and media are put together very well. Looks almost like a tattoo.

Image Manipulation/Photo Montage – Water Effect


The link above shows how to convert this image:

To this image:

I like how the image has been manipulated to look like the body figure is splashing out water. The garments are quite bright so they stand out from the black background making the subject appear clearly to the audience. This is very important when you want the audience to focus on a particular area. The link above gives you a tutorial on how to create this.

Photomontage Tutorial


This is the original image that we will use to create a photomontage in Adobe Photoshop.



OutcomeThis is what the outcome will look like – a bunch of photographs put together to create a larger image.


Step 1

Step 1Using the ‘Rectangular Marquee Tool’ select a random part of the original image, right click and select Layer via Copy. Repeat until the whole image is covered, but keeping in mind that each time layers are created from the original image.

Step 2

Right click on one of the layers and select ‘Blending Options’.

Step 3

Tick ‘Drop Shadow’ and enter the settings above.

Step 4

Also tick ‘Outer Glow’ and enter the settings above and click ok.

Step 5

Now right click on the layer we just edited and select ‘Copy Layer Style’.

Step 6

Select every other layer, right click and select ‘Paste Layer Style’.

Step 7

Now that all the layers have the same style, we should increase the canvas size for the next step, so click on ‘Image’ and select ‘Canvas Size’.

Step 8

Enter the settings above in the ‘Canvas Size’ dialog box and click OK.

Step 9

Now you can see that we have enough space around the edges to carry out the next step.

Step 10

Click on the eye icon as shown above to make the original picture disappear because if its visible it will interfere with the next step.

Step 11

You can rearrange the layers and take away some layers to your suitability.

Step 12

I like to go in order and start from the top layer, so select a layer, click on edit and select ‘Free Transform’ or CTRL+T.

Step 13

Tilt the layer to however you wanted your photograph to look.

Step 14

Carry out the same steps until all the layers have been tilted.

Step 15

They shouldn’t look arranged, they should look like a bunch of photographs chucked together.

Step 16

Now that the full image is complete, we can experiment and add or remove effects.


Step 17

We can make the ‘Outer Glow’ disappear so that our photographs don’t have a white border.

Step 18

..Or we could take away the ‘Drop Shadow’ and leave the ‘Outer Glow’. (I prefer the drop shadow more than the outer glow).

Step 19

We could add a background colour.

Step 20

Choose a colour you like or a colour that compliments the image well.

Step 21

Experiment with more colours.

Step 22

Try a gradient effect.

Step 23

Choose effective colours for gradient, most preferebaly minor colours used in the original image.

Step 24

Finally you could add an inner glow.

Step 25

Or you could try making more photographs piled together.

Music Montage

Photoshop Montage

Posted on June 9, 2009: http://www.mu-sik.com/2009/06/new-stars-use-music-studio-in-london-for-production-and-recording/

The model in this montage was also used in the party montage. This is a music montage that includes the dancer, an image of a studio blending in on the right that have been altered to be an orangey colour to the skintone of the dancer. There are also sound wavelengths of the same colour, along with everything on the right hand side disappearing as it reaches the middle. I feel that there isn’t enough space in it for the piece to ‘breathe’. The montage is too overwhelmed with images and patterns everywhere, its too ‘busy’ that it makes it hard for the viewer to focus on a particular part.

Party Montage

A Photoshop Montage


I really like this party montage because all the images used in this montage fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. I love how the cityscape’s opacity is reduced and blends in with the rest of the piece. It’s amazing how the woman in the image looks though as if she’s dancing and she’s been captured during a motion.

I would like to create something similar to this because I like the atmosphere in this montage; it gives a city/party feel to the picture. I like how the bright colours compliment each other.
