Images within Images

I thought I would try bringing together some elements of my existing images to form one new image that works to a theme. All the component images are of the same topic.

This type of image is very useful to designers, who often have a need for images to use as page headers, especially when designing websites.

Here is a good example of what I'm talking about.

This first one has a 'financial' theme

It's important not to reduce the sales of each of the component images, so I try to only use a thin slice out of each of the original images.

And here are some more examples. I think the themes are fairly obvious.......

Valentines Day, Romance, Love.

Herbs and Spices

Cakes and Baking

Fresh Fruit

Oriental Green and Herbal Teas

Alcoholic Drinks - Spirits, Wine, Champagne and Brandy

Wild Mushrooms

Fresh Vegetables

I then thought why not try doing the same thing with some of my 'travel' and 'wildlife' images.........

Myanmar (Burma) - Yangon, U-Bein Bridge, Monywa, Inle Lake and a monastery at Bago (Editorial)

Big Cats - Jaguar, Lion Cub, Male Lion, Leopard and Cheetah.

China - Shanghai, Great Wall, Beijing, Guilin, the Terracotta Army at Xian.


Myanmar (Burma) - Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Monywa

Moai of Easter Island, South Pacific Ocean.

Krakow, Poland.


The Maldives

Fiji, Tahiti, Cook Islands and Tuamotu Islands in the South Pacific

Cook Islands in the South Pacific

Rio de Janero, Brazil


Tibet - Gandan Monastery, Potala Palace in Lhasa, Gyantse Kumbum. (Editorial)

Wildlife, Birds

Wildlife of the Galapagos Islands (Ecuador)

Falkland Islands

I also made a few using some of my 'medical' and 'industrial' images.........

Types of Power - Wind, Nuclear, Solar and Fossil Fuel

I hope you like what I have produced and this gives you some new ideas to give a boost to your own portfolio.

I love all your photo's. I would think that even if you combined 3 or 4 together you could still use each one individually as well.? I see that as a plus for your portfolio for sure. I am impressed by all the places you have been, definitely well traveled. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

Excellent ideas. As you mentioned, the key is choosing what slices to include. I'm thinking these could be used for a lot of applications but especially website headers. Thanks!

Superb effect i really like all of them but as you have mentioned the danger is that you are giving away potentially four good pictures for the price of one. Just have to be careful and crop them instead of throwing in full image but that's exactly what you have done and it looks awesome!
Photoshop ?
