File size: Height: No greater than 600 pixels. The width cannot be smaller than 400 pixels.
The best image to search for is one that is exactly 800x600.
RGB color. No B&W images. Make sure that no one's head is out of frame (cut off).
Tools to help you:
Magic Wand | Lasso | Polygon Lasso | Magnetic Lasso | Quick Selection tool
The objective of this project is to swap heads for 2 people. Find a picture with 2 (or more) people in it and take the head off of one person and put it onto the other.
Then, do the same thing for the other person.
You can also take heads from different pictures and paste them into the picture with 2 or more. Ex: I have a picture from "Friends" and I want to use the head from Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck to replace Ross and Rachel. This would be acceptable.
Here is what I will be looking for when grading:
1. How clean your cut out is. Take time to make the head cut out look really good!
2. The heads are copies, NOT cut outs and are bobblehead-scaled proportionately.
3. Do the heads match the body position (looking in the right direction)?
4. Layers are correctly labeled.
5. The original picture is the bottom layer, unaltered.
6. The file conforms to the Specifcations above.
For mine, I used a picture of Brad and Angelina. I swapped their heads.
Here is the before and after:
And the difference between a good cutout:
and a bad cutout:
