Segmenting a photo

I have the following images I’m working with in Photoshop:

I want to segment the above to look similar to this one:

I also want the first photo to be continuous throughout the segments… (not different photos like in the example I want to recreate).

How can I do this? I would search on YouTube but I don’t know if there is a specific keyword I should use.

I think the simplest way would be to cut out the portions in between.

Lots of ways to do this. If it were me, I’d use the pen tool to draw vectors in the shapes of the cutouts (easy to tweak the vectors), and then use them as a mask. Using a mask is a non-destructive solution.

To remove the areas in between, in my opinion, would be the easiest solution.

But using a mask is probably way faster and as mentioned, less destructive.
You can apply multiple masks over one image by making the mask a compound path.

A mask would work. However, if it were me, I’d probably duplicate the layer, make the original layer invisible as a backup, then cut chunks out of the duplicate using the lasso tool while using the shift key. Then again, I’ve been known to do things differently than most.

I didn’t see the first line above the image. Eyes went to image first.
Working in Photoshop…
Yeah, what you said.
