AKVIS Chameleon works in five modes: Montage, Chameleon, Blend, Emersion, and Double Exposure.
In Chameleon mode, the program adjusts the inserted object to the target image color range and smoothes the object’s borders. It looks similar to the way a chameleon adapts to the environment.
Follow the instructions to create a collage using the Chameleon mode of AKVIS Chameleon.
- Step 1. Click on to open an image for the background, then click on to open an image with a fragment for a collage.
Attention! If you work with the plug-in, proceed as follows.
- Step 2. Select the Chameleon mode from the drop-down menu in the Settings Panel.
- Step 3. Use the Transform tool to change the size, the position, and the rotation angle of the pasted fragment on the background image.
Use the Opacity parameter to place the fragment more accurately.
- Step 4. Use the selection tools to select a fragment for a collage and mark unwanted areas.
- Step 5. You can use the Smooth Transition option for inexact selections.
Note: It only works if the image has strokes.
When the option is deactivated, anti-aliasing occurs only along the borders of the red strokes. When it is enabled, anti-aliasing will occur throughout the area between the red and blue strokes. The degree of smoothness depends on the distance between the red and blue stroke. The farther apart the red and blue strokes are, the smoother the transition.
Strokes are far apart from one another Without Smooth Transition Using Smooth Transition
Attention: This parameter should be used carefully. It can blur small details along the edges of the inserted fragment.
- Step 6. Click on to start the process of the collage creation. The result will be shown in the After tab.
You can see how the colors of the fragment were adjusted to the background color range.
You can also use the post-processing tools (Smudge , Blur , and History Brush ) to edit the result.
