    Yes use the lasso tool I believe its called, cant rember, looks like a cut out tool. Issue is to do something like what your trying to do is the scaling and contrast needs to be well suited other wise its diffcult. If your learning , be better doing something simplier, suppose going full in and one shot.

    Size fits, but the colouring is way out and the facial expresion on the face is not woud be on the real persons. Its difficult, to match those well. Like i said, start with the basics.

    looks decent, but I'd say the head is a little too bright and off-color.

    Select the area you want to change the colour, and change the Hue and Saturation, that'll allow you to select almost any colour you want.

    Erm, I'm not too sure, I don't use photoshop, I use Fireworks, but the idea is the same. :)

    That's true, but I highly highly highly highly recommend using those types of image adjustments as an ADJUSTMENT LAYER. You do that by selecting a layer, then at the bottom of the layers palette click on the circle that is half black and half white, and then select the type of adjustment layer you want. That way, the changes you make will be saved as a separate layer, and you can always go back and make fine tuning adjustments to those settings. If you simply go to Image-- then Adjustments, your changes will be set on the actual pixels of the layer you are working on and you can only undo those changes rather than adjusting them at a later time. Trust me, adjustment layers prevent headaches!


    Well, to do what you want, takes some practice and fine tuning. There are Photoshop plugins that can help (for example Akvis Chameleon does a great job most of the time), but you are still left to fine tune. Some of the things you might want to experiment with are:
    Adjustment layers such as:
    • Levels
    • Curves
    • Photo Filter
    • Selective color adjustments
    Tools such as:
    • Sponge tool (set to desaturate or to saturate depending on your goal)
    • Burn tool
    • Dodge tool
    • Blur tool
    • Stamp tool (to erase over parts of the original face that might still show after the new face is pasted)
    Some good tips to keep in mind:
    • BEFORE creating an adjustment layer, "Control Click" on the thumbnail of the working layer in order to select the pixels of that layer. In your case, that would select the face that was pasted in and nothing else. That way, the adjustment layer will be masked and will affect only that selection rather than the entire layer.
    • AFTER creating an adjustment layer, "ALT Click" on the line between the working layer and its adjustment layer. That way, the adjustment layer will only affect the layer below it (i.e. the layer it is related to) and it will not affect all the layers below it.
    • Link adjustment layers to their corresponding layer so when you move that layer, the accompanying adjustments will follow. Do that by selecting the layers you want to link and then click on the link icon at the bottom of the layers palette (in Photoshop CS2).
    • Learn to use "Snapshots" and "Layer Compositions" - they will save you time and make working with Photoshop a lot easier.
    Don't forget to:
    • Adjust opacity and fill values for the different layers to your liking. (found in layer palette toward the top)
    • Adjust the blending mode of a layer to get different effects that you might be looking for. (found in layer palette at the top left)
    I did just a very quick and dirty example with your two pictures. I know it can look better than that, but it's just a rough example so you get the idea of what I am talking about.

    You can download my Photoshop file here if you want to see some of the layers I created and experiment with how they change things.

    I hope this novel on Photoshop helps.

    That's my version of it. Once again, you just need to play with the hue, then play with the brightness, then if that doesn't get it close enough you can always play with the color balance.
