A technique called Joining, I suppose similar to Stitching, but instead of horizontal or vertical, this has a more random thing going on !

But with this image I cheated. It's one photograph, made to look like a number of images have been put together. At least that's what it's supposed to look like.

It may not be Art, but it's digitally modified .

First one, Barcelona. Photo & technique courtesy of Digital Photo magazine.

Second one Venice. My own photo.

Great technique. Is there a filter for this in PS or do you have to make the pieces yourself and re-assemble them?

Thanks guys.

Sean, not particularly professional, I just followed a tutorial to create this :-).

Simon, no. No filter to do this. You have to manually select portions of your original image and paste them into a new blank layer. Obviously a few changes made for the final effect, I haven't time right now, but if you want to know the steps let me know and I can go through them later.

Thanks again,

Steve.

Very effective Stevekins!

The different tonings and shapes look very good together.

Congrats!

Caroline.

Thanks Caroline, the tonings and shapes are purely personal. Meaning they can be changed to whatever you want them to be during the creation of the image by selecting various sizes, if you wish, and levels adjustments on each one. The addition of drop shadows emphasize the individual shapes.

Glad you like it Walter. I thought it looked like a good idea when I first saw it, and think I was right. I might have a go with an image of my Grandson and hope the effect works with people as well as with buildings.

Regards,

Stevekin.

Yes, well done Nlp.

As you have found, it doesn't matter what size the sections are. I think on my first attempt it looks a little cluttered with so many sections, I prefer my second one of Venice. Though that could be because I took that shot originaly :-).

I'm impressed you did a good job without knowing all the steps beforehand, well done on working it out.

One suggestion if I may though. Experiment a little more with changing the contrast of each section. Although I can see the 'joins',they areless prominent in the top half than the bottom. This is just a nitpick, great first attempt .

Stevekin.
