Georgi, I've done a lot of photo alteration where body parts or whole people move around. One key to masterful results is layers. I added a friend to a group photo that he took. I placed him in the back row. Rather than carefully erasing edges of him to plop him in a single layer above the rest of us, I copied a piece of the base photo with the right side of person A, and another piece with the left edge of person B. Then I pasted a carefully trimmed image of Friend from a different picture the same day onto the base photo, and pasted the two snips over him, placing them precisely, to the pixel, over their original location. Make your layers about 50% transparent to help with placing the snips back where they belong, then reset to 0 when you finish. This approach gives much neater edges, and close scrutiny won't give you away. Have fun! I know he'll love the result. Sharon Georgi Girl wrote: > > ...
