Compositing Close Up

It's one thing to create a composite image of distant objects with edges that can be blurred, as we did with the fantasy landscape. Assembling a collage of images that are closer to the camera, sharper, and easier to examine closely is more of a challenge. For this next project, we'll move a kitten from a deck railing to a Chinese desk, and do all we can to make the combination look realistic. Start with the Kitten image from the website, shown in Figure 5.42, and follow along with these steps. As with the last project, I'm not going to describe every single procedure in exhausting detail, except when we work with a new feature, such as the Extract command in the next section.
