To me it is more logical to click on the second layer (the one that you just pasted in) draw a marquee box (marching ants)around the picture you are wanting to bring in, then click back to the first layer. Once you are on the first layer simply press delete and it should delete the image covering the person. if you delete too much the background of the other picture should fill in the gaps...

Does this make sense??

Isn't this easier then erasing over and over again??

Whether you like it or not - all your visitors expect some redesign or
at list some change in web design of your site during the holiday
season and Thanksgiving Day is not an exception.

Thanks for the posts.

maybe it's the independence of not needing assistance every few hours to piss.

or it could be the cuddly-ness.

nah, it's the piss thing.

I love this idea. I use Photoshop to create DVD/Blu-ray cover and disc art for my business. But my question is if the background is the same and you are merging layers why are you taking the time to earse two, three, four, or five, different pictures, when all you have to do is earse one? To me it is more logical to click on the second layer (the one that you just pasted in) draw a marquee box (marching ants)around the picture you are wanting to bring in, then click back to the first layer. Once you are on the first layer simply press delete and it should delete the image covering the person. if you delete too much the background of the other picture should fill in the gaps...

Many, MANY, point and shoots (regular digital cameras) have an "Exposure" or "AE/AF" lock button and a self timer. Some (many Canon models) even have manual modes. You can certainly do this with more than just a DSLR.

I don't see why you you need a DSLR for this. A point and shoot (with self timer) that lets you set your f-stop and/or lock exposure should be fine.

Are you sure that you can adjust exposure and shutter speed on a P&S? 

P&S's are "Like a typical house cat, it does what it wants, when it wants, with or
without your consent."  You can't have the settings change at all during your shoot.  If they change enough, there will be a noticable difference of tone in your shots.  More experienced PS users will know how to correct that (it actually doesn't take much). 

Bottom line is, a DSLR makes things really simple.

This is a really cool article and different from the usual strictly computer based stuff. I really enjoyed reading it. And yes, it does suck that you can't do it with a regular camera. I'm going to have to find a friend that has a nice DSLR camera then. Maybe some reviews on a bunch of DSLR's in the near future for MaxPC?

Kind of lame that you can't use a regular camera for this :/

 you can but it's a bit trickier, i do it all the time.

Basicly you need to use the magic laso to select and delte the background around the other yous (or invert it and slect just you) and then you have you with no background and you can move yourself around and throw yourself in tosay Die Hard screens. whatever.

 

the only tricky part is lighting won't match perfectly
