You've seen them before; very funny, isn't it? Ever thought about doing something like that? I'll teach you how make a head swap image.
#1: You'll need a photo(s) of a person or people. Make sure their head isn't past beyond the border frame or you won't have a nice picture; and be sure you have the heads at the right angle to make look believable. #2: Use the Lasso Tool (Polygonal) and trace around the person's head or use the Marquee Tool as a quicker way, but you have to clear some of the background later on. Press Ctrl C or right click and copy to copy the head. Right click again and click paste or Ctrl V to paste the head (A layer will automatically appear when using this technique). If you used the Marquee Tool, do the Move Tool next and drag the selected head to the person you want to swap with. #3: With the head still selected, press Ctrl T to use the Transform Tool to adjust the size the head. (Hold shift and drag the corner square to the size you want. Add Alt to resize it while in place.) Use the opacity make the selected image transparent about 50% so you can see through it. If you want to rotate the selected image while using transform, move your mouse away from the corners a bit you'll see a curved arrow, meaning you can click-hold and drag it to rotate it. #4: If you used the Marquee Tool and you want select the head, use the Lasso Tool (polygonal) to round up the head. If you mess up, press the backspace to where you left off. There's two options to place the head your using to cover someone else's head. Either press Ctrl J to add a layer with the selected head and get rid of the old one, or invert it by pressing Ctrl Shift I to select the head and delete the background. #5: The last thing you you need to do is click the Add Layer Mask to add a thumb layer and press Ctrl I to invert it to she the head. Press Ctrl T to use Transform and adjust the head to make it with the other person's head. Use the Erase Tool to polish it up. If you made a mistake, Press Ctrl Z to undo. Another way is to use the Clone Tool to cover unwanted areas. Hover over where you want to select and press Alt and hold your mouse to cover the unwanted areas. You might have to do it over and over if there's something you don't to see.
Throughout this course you have mainly used photoshop. Do you feel that you have a good grasp on the software, or do you feel that you still do not know it? Why or why not? I liked using Photoshop. It makes me feel like I'm a better digital artist, though there are some things about it that I can't get a grip on yet. I love using the magic tool to select part of an image and paint it or delete it. I also like using the stamp, as you can use images from the internet and turn them into stamps. When I can get my hands on it on my laptop I'll make the best images I can think of!
What project was your most successful? What made it your most successful? Please include a picture for this question. (effort, idea, project planning, etc.) My most successful project by far was the Item Color Art (I don't know it was called.). It took me days to make it and it turned out great! My classmates loved it and it got into the yearbook. You might, "Why jelly beans," because it was simple to use and the patterns really help appeal the design. You could say it was an 'ultimate' idea. XD
