Photoshop :: Superimposing A Face (the Finer Aspects)

Jul 2, 2006

I'm going to be editing a series of images, cut from a movie, to make an animated gif. I'll be superimposing the face of one man onto that of another in each individual frame.

I know my way around photoshop (layers, brushes, effects, etc.), and I'm using CS2.

During some frames I will need to awkardly stretch the image of the superimposed face (Connery's) to fit that of the original actor's (Martin Sheen's) -- the frames in which his head is turned to the his right, as can be seen in the image below. There are also frames where the lighting on his face changes and smoke pours over his face. These are my main challenges.

I could use help with the lighting effects (casting shadows over a layer), the military style face paint, and the smoke effects, as well as general guides to photoshop face-transplanting

If a plugin is needed to do any of these, by all means recommend it and any associated tutorials; money is not an issue.

Here are a few sample frames taken that show each stage of the scene (it's the famous head-rising-from-water scene from Apoclaypse Now).

For the face to be superimposed, I will use a source image like these. The lighting is failry uniform, so these should be ripe images for shadow effects (I would like to cast a shadow over the right-hand portion of Connery's face, just as Martin Sheen's is in the movie):

Photoshop :: Finer Shade Of Grey

Apr 24, 2005

Open a new doc in Greyscale mode, and use your Color palette in RGB Spectrum to select your hue of grey/colour. And to get a finer shade of grey/colour within the hue of grey/colour you're working with, click on the little arrow (top right of Color palette) and open up the drop down menu and select Current Color. This will give you a finer palette of grey/colour saturation to work with.

AutoCad :: Different Viewports In Paper Space To Show Different Aspects Of Drawing

Sep 19, 2013

I am using autocad 2011..I have a problem with printing to scale.I have completed a drawing in model space with a 1:1 ratio, all my units are in mm.I have created 3 different view ports in paper space to show different aspects of my drawing, each view port has a different scale.

The whole drawing is to be printed on A2 size paper.

My main viewport (which contains the primary aspect of my drawing) is to be drawn to scale. When I click on this view port Autocad states that has a scale of 0.008583 – what does this mean? See picture 1..When I print the document the scale is set to 1 inches = 25.4.

All I want to do is print my drawing so that it fits onto an A2 page, but the main view port is to be printed to a scale. I want to scale to be sensible some like 1 in 200 or 1 in 50 etc so that other people can use a ruler to work out the real life dimension.

Photoshop :: Create Reflection Of Shaky Light And Further Improve Quality Of Superimposing

Mar 16, 2012

I have 2 problems that I'm trying to solve.

1) on the attached, how do I produce the effect of the shaky light on the brick floor that can be seen on the 2 lights in background behind the swimming pool (tried shadow effects option)
2) the fire on the left hand side (in front) still looks too superimposed, even though I've tried some of the things I was advised to do on a similar post (adjust vibrant mid tones, use burn tool etc).

GIMP :: Embedding / Superimposing Text On Image?

Mar 22, 2011

My problem might be a little more complicated than most problems considered 'beginner', but for all I know about GIMP (which is very little), it could be very simple.

I wish to superimpose text on an image so that the text's color us what color it was superimposed upon. To better explain what I want, take this rainbow image:


Say somebody type a large lowercase g near the top left corner of the image. The top circle of the g would be red whereas the bottom circle (or hook depending on the font) would be purple since it dips that far down.

After I finish typing the text, I could save that layer, or cut/copy that text as a new image and save it then.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Merging Circular Face To Flat Face

Aug 22, 2012

All I need to do is merge a circular face to a flat face, so both faces become one continuous face. Is this possible at all?

I have a attached a screenshot to show what I mean. Face 1 needs to be merged with face 2. This is so if I constrain anything to that face it will constrain to the entire face and not either the circular face OR the flat face.

Photoshop :: Blending A Face Into The Sky

Mar 3, 2012

I need to make a picture of a person's face blend seamlessly into the sky. The below shows you what I mean. At the moment the Kenyan Warrior's face has harsh edges and doesn't look properly blended in. My very limited Photoshop ability had me placing an inner glow and bevel and gloss to get something close to what I want, however I suspect the real tool I need for this is completely unknown to me!

Photoshop :: A Face On An Apple

Oct 1, 2004

I'm trying to add a face to an apple so that the face takes on the same contours/shading of the apple (I'm not trying to morph the face with the apple; I'm just trying to add a face on it, possibly like a reflection). I tried using the 'sphere' filter on the face but just couldn't get it to match the apple. Right now it just looks like I layered a flat picture to the apple and lowering the transparency didn't help.
