Talking Here is a little FUN project

I was given this task by my Father. Here is the scenario :-

The photo in "Step 1" is one that was found by my father

The photo in "Step 2" Is one of my Gt Grand dad (The original was found in a cellar and had quite a bit of flood damage - so in my uncles wisdom he decided that it would look good if the damage part of the picture was cut off and to place the image over a oil painting )

The photo in "Step three" I have tried to blend the two together since the uniform, hat & badge was that of my Great Grand dad

I'm sure that one of you can do better!


Here are the links

Just to be sure, the first photo is not your great grandfather right? and you want to replace the face from the second with the face from the first? Because the first picture as is just needs a bit of clean up.

Gave it a try, but I can't tell if it got any better than your montage.
I leave it like this even though the light is comming from wrong direction at the face.

At the bottom of the page there is a table, and in th table bottom where it says "Select your download: Free" Klick on "Free".
Then you will see a download link, (if the download doesn't start automaticly)
Have to repeat this for each file.

Change the lighting

I decided to go for the gusto and move the lighting to the other side of his face so it matches the body shot. I basically copied the nose/cheeks/brows and mirrored them. Then transformed this selection and plopped it back down on his face. I used a feathered selection to make it blend nicely. Very small amount of brushing to help the blending.

Then created two copies of the face. One copy burned from left to right (darker on the right). The other copy brightened. Put a mask between them so the composite face blends from brightened to burned. I actually overdid it a bit--oh well.

Changed the hue and saturation of the face to match the body photo. I got lucky--the face exposure happen to match pretty well after all that.

Then took the finished face and put it on the body using the standard method of putting the hat on a different layer. Deleted a feathered selection around the face to smooth out the transition between face and body--also did a bit with a soft eraser brush for a bit more clean up on the transition. I also ran NR on the face near the end.

I didn't touch any of the blemishes on the body photo. Also left some white blemishes on the face. Those are easy enough to fix with a clone brush. That's "left to the student" :-)

Thank you to everyone who's posted

I didnt even notice the lighting when I did this.

And thank you for your efforts and tips - they are very much appreciated. I am a realative novice compared to most on this forum, and have really just started enjoying the fun and benefits of the "digital darkroom"
