A new picture, in this context, is a picture that expresses an idea in a
different way than any of the pictures used in the collage.
If I take pieces from ten pictures and each pieces is identifiable as
being a part of another work and I assemble those in such a way that I
create a new image then I have created a new picture. This collage is an
adaptation of ten other works and you need to secure the right to
publish the adaptation (NB! in civil law jurisdictions you are _always_
allowed to create adaptations without asking for permission).
If the pieces I take are not identifiable as being a part of another
work then the image I create becomes a new independent work.
