What types of transitions and effects are available to me?
There are limitless options you can choose from for your photomontage, contact us for details. However it has been our experience that less is more when it comes to creating a photomontage. Too many rotations, flips, swirling transitions, face morphing and animated bumps tend to diminish the emotional connection that photos can have on its audience. We recommend using these options sparingly.
