  • 2. The Origins of Collage  ―Collage‖ was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art
  • 3. The Photomontage  Collage made from photographs, or parts of photographs, is called photomontage  Photomontage is the process (and result) of making a composite photograph by cutting and joining a number of other photographs
  • 4. Digital Collage and eCollage  Digital collage is the technique of using computer tools in collage creation to encourage chance associations of disparate visual elements and the subsequent transformation of the visual results through the use of electronic media. It is commonly used in the creation of digital art.  The term "eCollage" (electronic Collage) can be used for a collage created by using computer tools.

  • 11. How to Start the Collage Process • • • • • •
  • 12. Examples of Mindmaps
  • 13. Digital or eCollage Photomontage  10 photos collaged based on your mindmap  10 photos blended as a motion photo Some Options: Your Final Project
  • 14. Traditional Collage (faux) Physical Collage  10 photos collaged based on your mindmap with antiquing  10 photos cut out and glued on a poster board with art embellishments Some Options: Your Final Project
  • 15. Your Final Project  Your final project will consist of:  10 photos based on your mindmap (this should create a theme)  These photos combined together in an interesting and artistic way  Your choices are:  Digital collage  Photomontage  Traditional collage (faux)  Physical collage  RULES  You must use only your images  You must use only appropriate images  You may use text and graphics that you have created  Your images must BLEND (they cannot just be stacked together)  You may use color, black and white or a combination thereof
  • 16. “Digital Imaging Practice 1” 1. Open two photos, preferably focusing on a single subject matter 2. Turn both photos B&W using IMAGE  ADJUST  GRAYSCALE or you can use the new CS3 tool: IMAGE  ADJUST  Black & White 3. Choose the image that you want to be the ―background‖ and the image you want to be the ―merging-in‖ image 4. SELECT  SELECT ALL on the ―merging-in‖ image, then EDIT  COPY (SHORTCUTS: CTRL A, CTRL C) 5. PASTE this image onto the ―background image‖ file using CTRL V 6. RESIZE if needs be using EDIT  TRANSFORM  SCALE 7. Click on the ERASER TOOL and then go to your BRUSH SETTINGS and RESET YOUR BRUSHES using this dialogue window 8. Choose a SOFT ROUND BRUSH 9. Change brush opacity to 50% and begin erasing the excess parts of the ―merging-in‖ image (the parts you do not want to see!) 10. Go over the areas several times until the two photos start to ―merge‖  its okay if you get a ―halo‖ effect 11. ZOOM IN and clean up the edges with the eraser 12. When you are satisfied go to LAYER  FLATTEN IMAGE 13. Use the BURN & DODGE TOOLS to get rid of ―haloes‖ and alter the image so that they use a similar light source 14. Use the CROP tool to improve your composition
  • 17. “Digital Imaging Practice 2” 1. Open two photos, preferably focusing on a single subject matter 2. Turn both photos B&W using IMAGE  ADJUST  GRAYSCALE or you can use the new CS3 tool: IMAGE  ADJUST  Black & White 3. Choose the image that you want to be the ―background‖ and the image you want to be the ―merging-in‖ image 4. SELECT  SELECT ALL on the ―merging-in‖ image, then EDIT  COPY (SHORTCUTS: CTRL A, CTRL C) 4. If you are more comfortable using the QUICK MASK rather than the ERASER TOOL there is an alternate method. Start from Step 3 Above. 5. Instead of SELECTING ALL, on the ―merging-in‖ image hit QUICK MASK and then paint out the area of the photo you wish to copy (for the example to the right I would paint out the elephant red) 6. Once done, exit QUICK MASK and everything BUT your subject matter should be selected, go to SELECT  INVERSE 7. Then EDIT  COPY and then go to your ―background image‖ 8. EDIT  PASTE (CTRL V) 9. Again, use the ERASER and BURN & TOOL to clean up the image
  • 18. “overlapping pictures” 1. Open an image in Photoshop 2. Open a second image in Photoshop 3. SELECT  SELECT ALL 4. EDIT  COPY 5. Close the second image 6. Go to the first image 7. EDIT  PASTE 8. Now both images should be in the same file, NOTE that a new layer should have been created once you pasted this image 9. You can now use the MOVE TOOL (black arrow) to move the second LAYER – place the second image where you would like 10. Pick the ERASER TOOL 11. At the top select the BRUSH from the menu above . You will see a ―triangle in a circle‖ button – push this button and a menu pull up. Select BASIC BRUSHES and from this new menu , choose the 60 Drop Shadow Brush. 12. Using this ERASER BRUSH you can erase the edges of the photo. This will create a ―faded-look.‖ 13. Make sure you are only hitting the edges. Line up the eraser circle so that only half of it actually hits the photograph. 14. Repeat these steps with a third photograph. 15. The examples to the right should help.
