Tutorial: AKVIS Chameleon

Landing in the Forest

 

The author of this tutorial is Werner Demuth.

This tutorial shows how to use AKVIS Chameleon in AliveColors or another graphics editor to create a collage in which a helicopter appears to land in a forest. This example is remarkable in its simplicity - due to the similarity of the background of both images used there is no need to make a selection around any objects.
