I wonder have any of you ever used Photoshop either to produce material for inclusion in collages or to manipulate already completed works. 

I’m new to Photoshop so the two examples below are a recent amateurish experiment.

The original titled “Monstrance for. Sado-Masochist Deity” is in Easter egg foil and acrylic, the next a simple Photoshop filter imposed on part of the work.

Yes!! I do mixed media with heavy collage elements and I often will make a layer, import it into PS, edit it, print it, collage it, and repeat. This is my newest PS only piece: 
"But I Loved Him"

Yes, I have printed many things, even parts of my painting (pictures) and covered the image with novaplex or acrylic varnish and rubbed the paper off the back to create an opaque collage piece.
