I know you've seen the commercial... the new Microsoft commercial that promises to magically produce perfect group shots by offering a choice of heads from different photos. I'm not going to say I don't think it's possible, because it is... BUT, doing it well takes a little more human finesse than I think a computer is capable of. So until someone can prove me wrong (I'm calling gimick!!!) here's a video tutorial I did last year for my local newspaper's blog.
Last Thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to have my picture taken with the 4 generations of women in my family. When the 2-year-old was happy, we were just okay. When the rest of us were genuinely smiling, well, the 2-year old was doing other things. So after a quick reiview of the lcd screen, I knew I had a choice. I could drag things out hoping for all the planets (and faces) to align, possibly turning those smiles into grimaces, or I could spend a little time fixing it later. Here's my "later".
