Image pasting allows you to select a template (rectangular, circular, heart, speech bubble, mouse ears) and then overlay this on top of an already captured image and insert a new image into the first picture. The position and size of the template can be selected before you paste the second image. The new montage is now combined in the camera and saved as a new image.
