I’m a big believer in post workflow efficiency. Whether working with stills or video, one can never seem to get their workflow fast enough. And these days, we all spend far more time at the computer than we’d like. I know I do. I spent countless hours in Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere and other applications getting things just right.

Usually, it’s a gradual transition, you go from zero kids to one kid to two. Gives you time to get used to the havoc. But sometimes, God blesses you with twins, going from zero to two (or rather zero to hundred) in a split of a second. You can either get buried under the mess or… or transform your kids lives into a roller coaster of impossible scenarios. This is exactly what Guy Vainer did when he got two adorable kids.
DIYP got Guy on the line to asked him what the duck?
Hair is one of those parts of retouching that I least look forward to. It just takes so long to get things looking perfect. Especially if the image is from a shoot that didn’t have a hair stylist on set. If only I could shoot bald models, and composite hair in post, that would make life so much easier.
Well, thanks to Jesús Ramirez at the Photoshop Training Channel, we can! In this video, Jesús walks us through the process of giving a model a completely new hair style in Photoshop, even if they didn’t have much hair to begin with.
In 2016, Dinesh and Tarakeshwari Rathod, police officers from India, said that they were the country’s first couple to successfully reach the 29,035ft Everest summit.

On Monday, the police in Maharashtra confirmed that the couple had “morphed photographs,” and as a result – they were both fired from work.
Using her photography and photo manipulation skills, photographer Karen Alsop created her version of a time travel. When her mother found a photo of Karen’s Great Great Great Grandmother and Great Great Grandmother, it made Karen wonder: what it would be like to meet her ancestors, sit down and talk to them? Even more, how incredible it would be for her kids to meet them? And so, the idea was born.
She had a photo shoot with her two children and photoshopped them into the photo her mom had found, which dates back to the early 1900’s. The final result is incredible, and when she shared it on Facebook, most of her family and friends thought that the kids are the relatives who only resemble her children.
Karen has kindly shared the details about the entire process with us. From the photo shoot to compositing and colorizing the final image, even some BTS shots. It was a long and demanding task, but it was well worth the result.
