    UFO’s Gabrielle Drake would have made a sexy Vulcan, don’t you think?

    Would someone be willing to put Hugh Laurie in a First Contact-era sciences uniform? I keep imagining him as Hugh Cambridge (Full Circle, Unworthy), and someone in the TrekLit forum said the author had him in mind as well.

    Aside from the lighting issues, I think you also need to play with the head sizes. They feel a little small relative to the bodies. A good way to make sure they match is to take the layer with the new head and make it about 50% transparent. Line it up with the old one and line up the eyes. Then keep re-sizing until the eyes on each one match as close as possible. Then turn it back up to full opacity and work on the blending and lighting stuff.

    ^Eh, works either way.

    Am I correct in assuming that's actually Bashir's body?

    Yep. That's the only First Contact era sciences uniform I could find that fit the criteria for what I needed.

    When swapping heads, I usually drag guides to mark the centers of the eyes, the mouth, and the bottom of the chin. I use those to size and align the new head. Also, a useful trick is to occasionally flop the image left-to-right and back again as you work. It keeps your perspective fresh.

    I may have to "borrow" this one as a new avatar. I love it!:techman: It reminds me of the Wizards' Chess-type game they played on the Millenium Falcon.

    Allow me to say thank you and great work too! I may just have to use this as my bookmark for the next TNG book. :)

    Hey speaking of image editing techniques, does anyone know how to make a photo look like a painting? Are there some special filters or combination thereof that can do it? I've seen some really amazing work done. Check out this link that Rulius posted in another thread: Star Trek Vintage Artwork.

    My favorites are:

    Does anyone here know who the author is of this hilarious, imaginative work? I'm just mirroring the image, certainly not taking any credit for it. I think it's great and must have taken a ton of time to create. Anyone, anyone? :)

    Could somebody do an edit of James Kirk (TOS era) as an Air Force General (1-star) or a Navy Admiral (2 stars)?

    ^ I could have sworn I saw somebody do this earlier on... maybe check the older Photoshop threads.


    Here's a recent joke variation on "changed clothes" for the famed TOS duo of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock:
