There is a website that will create a modded photo into various online templates. These are showing up on FaceBook, MySpace and other social networks. I browsed through the templates they have, some use facial recognition and are hit and miss, others will just drop the complete image into a new image. I tried a few, this one was similar to one I had created in PhotoShop, to make my self-portrait into a jigsaw puzzle.

I added the drop shadow, and downsized the file as it was too large for FaceBook.

Now here is the one I created with PhotoShop CS2 with my own puzzle template layer, I didn’t know PhotoShop had one in the package.

Different original photos, but the took about 10-15 seconds, mine took… well much longer. I’ll still do most of mine in PhotoShop, as I can add my own personal items, like my real desk wood finish, or my own coffee mug. But the technology is fun.



About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
