Used a couple of Photoshop artistic filters, layering and painting.

patricia,

thank you and by all means, ask away re smart morph. it's actually pretty simple to use, even surprisingly so for the results one gets.

and steve,

thank you

as for slowing it down, i think the .gif version is slower. it also is looped so that it plays continuously backwards and forwards. the current frame rate is 15 frames per second because i wanted it to have a smoother transition between each frame. i've run into problems with these animations before where they wont play as fast when you put them on the web, so i wanted it fairly speedy for that reason as well. i could slow it down more. i could also make it larger. i cut the originals in half for file space conservation and speed. but in looking at it here on the web page now, it seems pretty good to me. still, it might be nice to be able to not only slow it down to see what she looks like at at '7', age '12' and so on, but to also pause it and take a snapshot of it. dont know how to do those last yet, but i'm sure it could be done.

as for aging software, there is some on the web. i think Cingular had a page up at one point that did that. you could upload an image and hit '10 years' or '20 years' and it would age the picture accordingly. now, why Cingular was doing this, i dont know. and i also think they took theirs down not too long ago. but there is at least one site that still does this....hang on, let me look for the page......

ok, here it is: http://www.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~morph/T...mer/index.html probably not the best, but might be fun.

patricia,

the closer the pose, the smoother the transitions will be. the program is pretty good, however, and seems to have been made for much odder images going from one to the other. you could even do a dog into a cat and it would work; it just wouldnt be quite as smooth as this one was. and if the dog and the cat were in similar poses and views to the camera, it would be better. it's a slick little program.

as for your other girls, ya just gotta grin show us the results when you get them.

and ya know, you could actually probably make a business of this if a picture is worth a thousand words, then an animation is 1000 words per frame
