Definition from Vukajlija:
Fotomontaža je tehnika lažiranja nečijih izgleda ili situacija koja se radi pomoću autocenzura reklamnopropagandnog materijala. Primenjuje se sa namerom kompromitovanja nekih osoba na najlakši način ili ulepšavanja pojedinaca zarad visokog kotiranja u društvenim mrežama.

Example sentence(s):
  • Fotografija ubijenog Bin Ladena lažna, čista fotomontaža. - glavonja  
  • Fotomontaža je zapravo tehnika kombinacije više fotografija kako bi se na kraju dobila jedinstvena slika to jest fotografija koja u većini slučajeva nema veze sa stvarnosti. - didirnime.com  
  • Kako saznajemo, Seka je navodno tužila spomenuti magazin jer se naime radi o fotomontaži koju su joj podmetnuli. - bobo123  

Fotomontaža je tehnika kombinovanja više fotografija kako bi se dobila jedinstvena slika, kao i naziv za tako dobijenu sliku.
