This is the final picture, the new Bonn Square in Oxford with added bustle, courtesy of Picnik. The new Clone tool is used to do this (you need to be a premium user of Picnik to have access to this).
I started with two pictures of the same scene, taken a few seconds apart and pretty much the same field of view.
The Picnik Collage facility provides an opportunity to work on two similar pictures using the Clone tool.
- Start Picnik, log in, select Library and then Start
- Select Make a Collage
- Choose a grid one column wide and two rows deep
- Select Print quality (to work at maximum resolution)
- Adjust the proportions to 60:40 or similar to match the aspect ratios of your source pictures
- Reduce the spacing between pictures, if you wish
- Use the Photo Basket to drag your two pictures to the Collage and click Done when both pictures are in place
- Click on Create, then Advanced, and select the Clone tool
- Click on the target area for cloning in the source picture and select the corresponding point in the destination picture; clone as required
- The final picture can then be cropped to order:
A 10 MP source photo may be reduced to 4 or 5 MP, but there’s still sufficient resolution to make a 10 x 8 print, or thereabouts.
Now, where did I put those photos of an Iranian missile test?
