Face Swap Using Photoshop

This is the original photograph that I pulled from the Internet. It was found by Googling "two people" and looking through the images.

This is the photograph after I used Photoshop to switch the heads of the three men. Even after careful examination, it's still kind of hard to tell the difference between the original and the fake.
I took an image from the Internet to swap the heads of the people in the picture, and this picture was perfect for the activity. I used this link for instructions on how to actually perform the face swap: How to do a Face Swap in Photoshop. In a quick summary, you use the lasso tool to move the heads into general positions, then use the selection tool to cut off the excess background. By fine tuning some parts of the heads through changing their brightness and blurring the background, the new photo now resembles a completely different picture than the original. The activity was a blast to do and I thought I did a pretty good job of doing the face swaps. When I was finished with my new picture, I kind of liked it more than the original!
