Examples and Tutorials

I am very interested in seeing different Collage and Montage styles and Techniques. Are there others interested in showing their work and sharing their knowledge of making collages and montages. I like using family photos and backgrounds and using graphics of interest to the people in the collages. I do not have a link right now to any information but will look for some. Please post any help and information. Thanks Neb

montajes

I don't know if you've heard of www.worth1000.com There you'll find some great tutorials on Chops (montajes) sure... they are not exactly "family" but I think you could find use for the tips.

Link

Godmother thank you for the link , I did not see any place for montages, can you guide me please?

skydog I have samples but do not have permission from the people to use them to post. I would like to do so, I will try and get permission. Most of these have been gifts to the people in the collages and pictures used are their own or my digital pictures taken at the events like a wedding and motocross race. I have one of my grandson I just did of some of his motocross pictures , but I should ask him and his Dad if I may post it.
For anyone interested I have this link which has some examples and tips.

If anyone has other links please post and your work as well. I will be seeing if I can get permission to post mine. Thanks Neb

The style and layout of what you are doing and seeking is more important than the faces...so why not blur out or color out the face of the individuals so no one knows who they are?

You raise an interesting question. I know one must get permission to use someone's photo for sale and profit, but is this also true for art? or taken in a public forum? For news one does not need permission...where is the line drawn? Another question...if I see an interesting picture in a magazine can I scan it for posting to share or to ask the approach someone took to get that look if I give credit to the source?

just take a brush from either program and white out the features of the faces so no one knows who they are and then save the file by another name. You can then post the example you are trying to explain without identifying the people in the photo.
