How to Make a Photo Montage
Photo montage is usually understood as creating complete images from parts of different photos. This technique is widely used for making advertising banners, personalised e-cards, funny pictures, etc. Usually, making a professional photo montage requires hours of hard work in complicated photo editing programs. However, a simple photo montage can be created even by a complete beginner! If you have no or little experience in photo editing, we recommend you try Movavi Photo Editor – an easy-to-use picture montage program.

From this tutorial you will learn how to remove unwanted objects from a photo and replace a background using Movavi Photo Editor. Just download the appropriate version of the software and follow the steps below.
Step 1: Install the Photo Montage Software
Open the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the software.
Step 2: Upload Your Photo
Click Browse for Images and choose a desired photo. You can also add a photo by dragging it into the program’s working area.
Step 3: Remove Unwanted Objects
Open the Object Removal tab. Select Brush and fully cover the objects you want to remove with red highlighting. You can also use Magic Wand or Lasso to mark the unneeded objects. If you highlighted more than required, use Eraser to clear the excess. Then, click Start Erasing to remove the marked objects.
The automatic removal may leave behind some blemishes on a photo. To get rid of those, use the Stamp tool. With its help you can copy the appropriate part of the image to cover up the flaws. Select Stamp from the editing panel, hold down the Alt key and left-click on the area you want to copy. After that, just paint over the blemishes.
Step 4: Change the Background
Open the Background Removal tab. Choose Foreground Brush and mark the objects you want to keep in the photo with the green highlighting. Then select the red Background Brush and mark the background you want to remove. After that the foreground object will have a yellow outline around it. Make corrections with an appropriate brush if necessary. To remove the background, click Set New Background.
To change the size of the saved fragment, drag the Arrows icon in appropriate direction, as shown in the screen image. Here you can also soften object edges by dragging the Blur edges slider.
Now you can choose the background color or leave it transparent. To set the desired image as a background, click Image File and select the picture you need. Click Apply, when you’re satisfied with the final result. To cancel all changes to the image made in this step, click Reset.
Step 5: Save Your Picture
Click Export in the lower right corner of the interface. Choose the appropriate format and save your photo.
