Then choose Chameleon or Blend mode from the list in the Settings Panel. In these modes not only are the fragment’s edges smoothed, the fragment is also adjusted to the background, changing in color and transparency. This makes the collage appear more realistic.
The Opacity option makes insertion of the fragment easier by controlling the amount of fragment "preview" transparency. It does not affect the final result. Use it when you need to position the fragment on the image at a high accuracy.
