Generate instant, hyper-realistic collage art with highly customizable details.

Based on the original Texturelabs technique in the popular “Collage Effect” tutorial, this action streamlines the process, taking any photo or artwork and instantly generating a beautifully stylized and highly detailed collage.

After running the action, you can make easy, sweeping changes to the way the collage is rendered. The balance between darks and lights, the level of detail, even the collage patterns themselves can be changed and experimented with.

Rather than individual collage texture images (as in the original tutorial), the action uses 9 collage texture patterns. Create a variety of looks using the included patterns, or generate limitless custom results using your own patterns.

Check out the “Collage Effect” tutorial for some ideas and an in-depth look at how the project works.
