    Hey guys I took a picture the other night having dinner with friends. I took one and it didn't have me in it obviously, and then my brother took one with me in it. Now what I would like is to cut out my brother and stick him in his chair in the picture he took, because he's not in it.
    And I was wondering if one of you guys would be able to do that for me if it's not too hard. :smile: Pleeeaaase

    I've linked the images from Flickr but I dunno if that's the best way to actually get the files of the net.

    My brother is the fella at the end in the blue shirt in the first pic

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/50527022@N02/5243172145/" title="DSC_0213 by iconindustries, on Flickr">"1024" height="576" alt="DSC_0213" /></a>

    and I want him put in his chair in this pic

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/50527022@N02/5243769734/" title="DSC_0219 by iconindustries, on Flickr">"1024" height="699" alt="DSC_0219" /></a>

    It would be good if the white balance was the same on both pictures but my D90 must of had a spack attack.

    I havta go to bed now so I wont be around for awhile but if you need the pictures uploaded some other way I'll be able to do it in the morning.
    Thanks stacks guys...

    Quick and dirty:

    Untitled1.

    I'll be happy to do a more precise job if you send me full res files. To do it right, I would have to resize the picture of your brother, as he is obviously not as small as he looks in the composite.

    Regards,

    Antonio

    Quiick and dirty - his brother's right arm seems to hurt pretty badly in first try (second is better, but still...).

    Hence the description "quick and dirty." Easy enough fix (paint the portion of the mask corresponding to the missing arm back in) but not worth it (IMO) in a low res file.

    Like I said, if Icon sends me full size files, I'll be glad to do a more precise job.

    Regards,

    Antonio

    Wow, thanks Antonio and Raphael. Great Job. I wouldn't have a clue of where to start. If it's ok with either of you I would really love to send you the full rez images. Would it work if I emailed them?

    Ta,

    Have some real fun - have him leaning inside the door or peaking through the window or real small like he is 4 years old ...

    Sorry Antonio for taking so long to get back. I've been overloaded by work these past few days trying to get an engine rebuilt.
    What you did is exactly what I want. Thankyou so much. It looks so real!

    I got the pic in the email you sent me and it's just been put into aperture ready to be printed.


    I'll have to return you a favour now!


    Thanks,
