Can this be done and what with
Posted on 2002-07-27
I want to create a graphic image, a montage, made up of parts of several photos, with each part blended into the surrounding parts, but I want the parts to randomly change to parts of other photos, a part would fade out and new one fades in, then another part somewhere in the montage does the samething, randomly throughout the montage.
The photos from which the parts are taken will be on separate pages and in their entirety on those separate pages. On the page with the montage I want to create rollover links to those pages where the rollover effect is that the montage then becomes a montage of only the photos on that page.
Can this be done, how, and with what tools? I have Photoshop 6.
I don't need explicit details on each step of how it is done, as I will have to teach myself the tools anyway, but a general outline of how it would be done (the changing montage - I can do the rollover links that change the montage) but please use industry terminology so I can look them up in a book.
Also if you know of a good book or online tutorial/site that would describe how to do what I want I would appreciate it.
Here is another description of what I want.
Suppose there is a square divided into 9 squares ( The montage will NOT be a square it will be a slightly irregular, elongated oval standing on its narrow end at about a 45 degree angle - so please don't provide answers about tables ) and each square is filled with a picture, first the picture in the top middle fades out/into a new picture, then one in the bottom left , then one in the middle right, then one in the bottom right then one in the top right, then one in the middle middle, then one in the top left... and so on it doesn't have to actually be random, just appear random. This is the affect I am looking for.
