Jill ... haven't visited BetterPhoto in a while, but was glad to see the judges pick this image as a winner - much deserved. You'll have to write me sometime to let me know how you did this - it's a great image.

Bob Jensen #2599794

Zoe j. Cocker April 06, 2006

Wow! How did you do that? It is amazing #2615158

Jill Battaglia April 06, 2006

Thanks Bob and Zoe,
I applied a slight motion blur to the original image then dragged the woman selected from another image over and placed her at the bottom of the stairs. Then I lowered her opacity so that you could see through her. Fairly simple really. Mostly time consuming and a steady hand needed for selecting. ;-) #2615388
