How to Put Someone's Face on a Different Body

By Brenda Barron

When working with photo manipulation tools, you may at one point need to put one person's face on another person's body. Whether you need to accomplish this for a project or simply want to have a bit of fun with family photos, you can accomplish this task using Photoshop and some careful image crafting.

Things You'll Need

  • Photoshop

Step 1

Open the two images in Photoshop, one of the body you want to use and the other of the face you want to use. To make things easy, set the two image windows side by side.

Step 2

Click on the image you want to use the face from. Click on the "Lasso" tool from the tools plate. Using the "Lasso" tool, draw a selection path around the face you want to copy.

Step 3

Select Copy from the Edit menu. Select the image window with the face you want to replace. Select Past from the Edit menu. Now you will have the face you want to use in a new layer, in the image window of the face you wish to replace.

Step 4

With the new face layer still selected, select Free Transform from the Edit menu. Adjust the position and size of the new face over the old one, clicking the "Enter" or "Return" key when done.

Step 5

Use the eraser tool to clean up any odd edges and help blend in the edges of the old face. Use color adjustments to help match skin tones and shading. Click on Image>>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation from the menu bar. This will activate an adjustment window. Play with the different sliders to match each layer to each other. When you're happy with the look, click "OK."

Step 6

Click File>>Save As from the menu bar to save your file. Name the file something short but descriptive. Change the file type to Photoshop if not already. Click Save.
