AKVIS Chameleon allows creating photo collages quickly and with a realistic result.
In the following tutorial we will use the Chameleon mode of the program to transfer the yachts from one image to another. In this mode the program smoothes the object’s borders and adjusts its color range to the new background.
It will take you only several minutes:
Hint: If you use the standalone version you can draw the contours with blue and red pencils.
These tools are also available in the plugin, they let you edit the selection.
Adobe Photoshop: Filter –> AKVIS –> Chameleon – Grab Fragment; Corel Paint Shop Pro: Effects –> Plugins -> AKVIS –> Chameleon – Grab Fragment; Corel Photo-Paint: Effects –> AKVIS –> Chameleon – Grab Fragment.
If everything is done correctly, you’ll see a message that the selected object has been saved into the clipboard.
Adobe Photoshop: Filter –> AKVIS –> Chameleon – Make Collage; Corel Paint Shop Pro: Effects –> Plugins -> AKVIS –> Chameleon – Make Collage; Corel Photo-Paint: Effects –> AKVIS –> Chameleon – Make Collage.
The AKVIS Chameleon’s window will open and show the sunset image as a background and the yachts pasted over it.
To move an object bring the cursor inside the object, the cursor will turn into a cross . Move the object keeping the left mouse button pressed.
To change the size of the object change the parameters W (width) and H (height).
In our case we have reduced the parameters W and H from 100% to 60%.
