Try me, I like to face swap for fun sometimes lol and I think I'm guru at it!

@JanDan: Here's my simple method of face/head swap (more face, but if you make the selection bigger than the head including the hair, then you can erase the extra background around the head and/or neck)

1. Select Freeselect with the free select tool or ellipse select tool the head you want to swap.
2. Copy it into a new layer.
3. move/paste the head to the new body background.(as it's own layer if importing)
4. Right click your new head layer and "add layer mask"
- Click "selection" option, click ok
5. Your new head will disappear for a bit, just erase the middle area of the head on the new body to reveal it. Erase from the center outward.
6. Right click on the new head layer & click "Apply Layer Mask"
7. Do any cleanup to the edges with a soft brush if needed to blend it better. Done! Smile

If ofnuts takes me up on the challenge and puts up two pics I'll show you my end result along with a few picture steps of process tutorials.

Hi, how do you match if the color of the head is different from the body. thanks

Use either color balance, colorize, curves or levels.

Colors > color balance
Colors > Colorize
Colors > Levels
Colors > Curves

For most cases, curves does nicely:

I am needing just 1 undetectable photo shop. My son is in prison, recently married a lady in prison. He requested I take his head from photo and "crop" into another setting, for his bride. I have no understanding of method, but in my reaearch, saw your post. If I can link the 2 shots, would you consider doing this for me please?
