To create a photo collage in PhotoImpact using Standard mode of AKVIS Chameleon Plug-in:

On the image below we selected the hazel eyes of the second girl, pasted them into the first image and applied the Chameleon plug-in. The third image shows the result.

In Snapshot mode, the program does not only smoothes the borders of the inserted object and adjusts its color range, but it also makes the object semi-transparent, so that the texture and the relief of the primary image can be seen through.

To create a photo collage in PhotoImpact using Snapshot mode of AKVIS Chameleon Plug-in:

On the image below we made a snapshot of the first image, pasted into it the girl from the second image and applied the Chameleon plug-in.

Attention! If the pasted object does not fit into the background you should adjust its size before copying it into the main picture. The reason is that we do not guarantee good work of the plug-in (especially in Snapshot mode) if you resize the object with the Transform Tool after the insertion.
