Russian term or phrase: мусор
хммм. речь о добавлении в картинку "мусора", чтоб она не была такая пустая. то есть - всякие завитушки-финтифлюшки, эстетно заполняющие пространство.

у меня вот что-то foreground objects вертится на языке, что типа add some foreground objects to make it look complete, но это адекватно вообще?
