A simple photomontage

A photo taken out of one of the windows in Gloria's house was the basis for this photomontage.

I decided to use the cat's red ball for this experiment. I've used the ball for many of my photomontages.

I try several different positions before deciding on this composition.

I want the smaller ball to appear to be outside the window so I take my original photo and clear the window area that I will place over the ball.

I use the Polygonal Lasso Tool in photoshop to outline the area that is needed and place it over the area where the ball is located.

Photomontages are fun to experiment with and are a great way to learn how to use the various tools available in the Photoshop program.

Something to think about


This poster was created on the computer, I frequently do posters to send to friends. The self portrait is the one that I use on my blogs. It was done on the computer in a woodcut style. I love experimenting with various computer art techniques.
