I did this one last year, but I've improved upon it a bit to try blending Burt into the scene better (graduated blurring and adjustment of shading).

Another take on Gary Mitchell, this time in Kirk's green tunic. McCoy seems to approve.

Should be back up now. I must have accidentally broken the link when I revised the picture a bit.

Chaotica's prisoner - Dale Arden.



Her hero, Captain Proton.

(I think the first image was more successful; I had a lot of trouble with Dale's contrast level in the second.)

Those Capt. Proton/Flash Gordon ones are great. If I didn't know, I'd never know.

Thanks for the compliments. Like all of us Photoshop tweakers, I'm always trying to improve. For example, I can see now where some of the faces need more grain to better blend with the base photo. And Nancy Kovack's -- uh, I mean Jackie Bisset's -- hand and knife scabbard should cast a shadow on her midriff.

Diana Rigg on Trek TOS -- oh, if only . . . !

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

^ You're welcome. Yeah, there's lots of considerations when doing this sort of thing. A lot of it depends upon the compatibility of the images and the lighting used. Another thing hard to get right is proportion. The one of Avril Lavigne looks great, because the lighting for both images match really well. The only thing I'd suggest is lowering the brightness level and adding a slight touch of blur to her part of the image. The one with Jacqueline Bisset is tough because the lighting direction contrasts by 90 degrees. You'd have to fabricate some shadow effects. The other thing is her head looks a little small. With sizing, I make a few copies of the layer and experiment with different sizes to see how they look. Sometimes reduction or enlargement by just 2% can make a world of difference.

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

Here's an example... took the head of Avril Lavigne that you provided and lowered the brightness, added some blur, and then used a selection with 3px anti-alias to soften edges on some parts of her hair. I also switched to a different base photo (got it from TrekCore), to put more of the table in view. It could still use a little work... I'd probably tone down some of the hair highlights and try to blend Avril's hair into Drusilla's a bit more. But alas... it's all about how much time you have to spend.
