    "I only read on Google that Movavi can do photomontages so I downloaded it since its free! So far it can really do it but I'm still trying to learn it by relying on youtube tutorials. Not really good with editing but I need it for school purposes."

    "Been using this for changing image backrounds into white so I figured it can also create photo montages becuase its PHOTOSHOP! And yeah I read a blog that it actually can. But I'm still learning how to do it by experimenting, Just hate watching videos on how to do it. Much better to figure it out myself."

    "So I tried doing the composite photography (AKA photomontages) using Gimp. At first I had trouble figuring out how but my friend (whos been using gimp) taught me how so now I'm already working on it. I'm polishing the photo which I'll be using for my presentation in our photography class."

    "This has A LOT of features! Really! And now I'm still wondering how to do the overlapping of more images and combining it to one. But based on the blog I just read, Luminar is capable of doing such. In fact there were photo demonstrations shown and the samples were great. It says its made from Luminar. Now I'm still learning. Just hope I can do great."

    "Not really good with technical stuff and editing. I just know how to take photos. I've tried using adobe photoshop but I had a hard time. My prof suggested I try ON1. When I tried it, I forgot what I need to do because all its features are soo exciting to use! Next thing to do is to try how to do the photo montages by using several tools. Hope it works well for me!!!"

    "Been editing our travel photos by adding dragons and other huge creatures. PhotoScissors is what I use when doing that. Because a photography class requires us to create the best photomontage, I decided to just use this one because I'm already use to it. I think this isn't really the best software for photo montaging because the software is incapable of doing other features."

    "Only heard about Photoscape from my brother. He's a photog and he told me that when he was just a beginner, he was only using photoscape. This is where he learned the basics of editing. so I also tried using this one out because I want to try doing photo montages. So far I was able to learn easily how the software is used."
