Photography Question

how to correct a bad hair day?


Does anyone know how or if it's even possible to remove or correct a photography of a child that has his hair in his eyes? Adobe Photoshop Elements is the software that I use... any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Teresa

  Depends on the picture.
For such a general question, I could say easy as pie, because it's simple to make a face transplant from another photo with photoshop. Or any other program.
Me, I'd probably just re-shoot.

  Yeah Greg? I heard Eric Clapton made himself look like Richard Lynch. THAT was tough !!! LOL

Teresa, part of a kid's charm is hair in the eyes, at least to some degree. Either leave it or reshoot it as Greg suggested.

  Get a second picture that has the face pointing at the same angle, and select the face by drawing just above the eyebrows, around the cheekbones, under the mouth.
Feather the edges of the selection and copy it and paste it to the other photo.

  Best to reshoot or pay a professional. My friends girlfriend has a GREAT PERSONALITY and looks great with hair in her eyes.
