How to:

The images are created in Photoshop Elements (or similar software) Simply use the Polygonal Lasso tool to cut out a desired feature from an image. The add it to another picture as a new layer. Change the size of the new layer to create a sense of scale. The opacity of the new layer can be adjusted allowing you to gradually fade in the new feature for added visual impact. It's a really simple idea and pupils would enjoy creating their own virtual images.
Find pictures by searching through Flickr.
