Did everyone notice the little 'enlarger' icon in the 'top left corners' of our montage example images above?
Click it and it enlarges the image so you can see it so much better!

You can click anywhere on the image to enlarge it. The icon only tells that the image can be enlarged.

That is great as well! And I just discovered something else that I really love. Say you open your 'backdrop image' then
you bring in an image to cut out. And then you decide you don't really like your backdrop image. You can then just
leave your cut out image on the screen and re-click 'backdrop image' and bring in a 'different' backdrop image...

You can keep changing it as many times as you like. That way you can keep trying backgrounds for your cut outs
until you find one you like better. Nice feature. Love it.

My further experiment with PhotobBlend. I musked off background but didn't invert it. So, it appeared in the backdrop as a hole with siluete of the subject. I found this interesting. What do you think? Yuma

Yuma, I like it! Very creative.

Here is a little something I created and and ran through DAP. It could use a bit more work but I did a a shadow!

Maybe you shouldn't have. The shadow looks false. I think you should have put it discretely behind the vase instead of prominently to the right.
