The Art of Collage

Collage comes from the Frenchcoller, “to glue”.  It refers to a technique where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole image.

The Origin

The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty. Two main painter Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century  have been using heavily this technique/

Of course computers nowadays enables to combine images and simulate the assembly of different digital images.

One PhotoCollage

Of course this is an art and the process can be tedious. On most applications such as Photoshop, you would work with multiple layers and masks but that become cumbersome pretty fast. Also changing images force you to redo the whole job

Here is where we introduce OnePhotoCollage…

The concept of this application or Photoshop plug-in OnePhotoCollage is a bit different since we work with a single photo to break out ONE single photo and give the illusion of several elements glued together for a new art effect.

The design of the plug-in, make the effect quick to achieve. The power of computer is the ability to  modify elements very fast to achieve a whole different effect, it is also possible of course to save all the geometry and reuse it across different single photo.
