How to do photo montage with Cut-Out on Pizap | Publishers

Make photo montages with the piZap platform possible thanks to the Cut-Out function, which allows you to copy a specific element from a photo and paste it into a new image. The resource is very useful for adding people who were missing from a group meeting, for example, or inserting someone in a different landscape.

The editor delivers a result close to what would be done in Adobe Photoshop, but in a much simpler way, especially for novice users, who do not have the domain of image editing. In addition to the web version, piZap also has an Android and iOS mobile application (iPhone and iPad). Next, see the step by step to make the photo montage in the online editor using the computer.

Step 6. To facilitate the clipping, select only the area of ??the photo in which the element to be removed appears. That way you don't need to zoom in on the image to make the selection. After adjusting the grid, confirm in "Apply", on the left side of the screen;
