I had visions of the perfect family photo for our Christmas cards this year.
Unfortunately I forgot to factor in that I don't have the perfect family.
I'll save the gory details of Family Picture Day for another post. I'm still trying to recover.
Today I'll show you my quick little Attitude Adjustment...the photoshop way!
Princess, who's usually my major camera hog, was giving major attitudes while trying to snap our family photo. Here's the best one of the bunch...
As you can see, it's not quite 'Christmas Card' worthy!
Event though Elements has a photomerge feature in it, there weren't any good ones that merged easily so I had to rig it up on my own.
I liked this shot I got of her later when she finally decided to chill out...
So I selected my Quick Selection tool and just selected her head and upper part of her shirt.
Here's my screenshot showing the 'marching ants' around my selection...
Then I dragged my selection onto my family portrait and resized my floating head over the 'attitude' head. Here's my creepy screenshot with 2 heads on my portrait!
I resized the good head over the bad head and it fit pretty well. I cloned the bushes behind her to make everything blend in.
TaDa!! My new Perfect Family!
If only it were that easy in real life!
