Photomontage

Photomontage is the process (and result) of making a composite photograph by cutting and joining a number of other photographs. The composite picture is sometimes photographed so that the final image is converted back into a seamless photographic print. Today, image-editing software, although not using film, produces similar results. This latter technique is referred to by professionals as "compositing", and in casual usage is often called "photoshopping".
