Have Some Fun! Switch Your Head to Another Body!
Students will combine the head of one picture into another picture with a different body.
Students will use several photo editing tools including the cropping tool to crop the head, the magic wand and eraser to remove the background from the head shot and the layers feature to place the headshot layer over the body layer.
Students will also learn that .png image files can used to retain the transparent background of the headshot image.
The free photo editing / paint program Paint.Net is used for this exercise.
Students should have a headshot picture of themselves and a body picture to work with.
Some ideas for head switching bodies are animals, cartoons, other students, athletes, singers, dancers, circus people, body builders, models, friends, etc.
