Compositing is the process and result of making a composite photograph by cutting elements from photos, editing them, and adding them to a master photograph. Today, composite pictures (a.k.a. photomontages) are created using image-editing software such as Adobe Photoshop. Each of the following composite examples shows the individual elements to be "cut," the master background photo on which the cut elements will be placed, and the finished composite.

The element that Warren cut from this photo of his wife Rosanne and himself was his head. After digitally cutting the edge of his head from the sky and clothing, he pasted the image on a transparent background (shown right). He sized the head shot to blend in proportionately when placed over the heads of two different anonymous men below. See the finished composites in the next two examples.

Greeting Card Composite Celebrating Thanksgiving
To create an attractive, meaningful Thanksgiving card, Warren cut these two elements from stock photos; divided the card's center into three sections; pasted the images and a scriptural reference on a colored background (shown below); added personalized messages at the top and bottom; and applied solid borders to the three sections and a decorative, handmade outer border to the card.
Now take a look at Warren's finished composite in this before-and-after transition.
