Is there a way to cut a face from one photo and place it on another photo with percise placement. Any help would be appreciated.

This is definitely not a simple 1-2-3 process. You might try googling it for a how-to example such as this one to help get you started.

To do this I use layers, copy and paste into a new layer of what I want to copy, and you can choose one of the layers and make it the opacity a very light tint that way you can simply see through it and move the layer around until it is over the exact place that you want. Then change the opacity back to 100%. From there you can remove what you want from the original or leave it there depending on how it looks to you. And then just flatten.

I hope that helps I tried to explain it the simpliest way. I dont know how much you know photoshop.

Here is a thread from 10/01/2003 where we discussed swapping heads. It should work.

' . substr('//home.comcast.net/~rlholdensr/dpc/austin-05sm.jpg', strrpos('//home.comcast.net/~rlholdensr/dpc/austin-05sm.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This is the easiest way.

filter...extract tool. you can use the marker icon to draw around the parts you want to cut around & use. Use the paint bucket to fill that part & hit extract. you can then selest it & put it anywhere you want in a new layer BG.

Actually my photography partner did it for me a few weeks ago, took about 30 seconds [but she's a pro with a degree] in Photoshop. And I blew the photo up and you can't tell....no one can tell; not even the bride who's face we replaced.

I think it was Digitalpins who described it the way my partner did it. Everyone else seems to want to make it complicated for you!
Once you get the new face in place, you can use the cloning tool [or somethign similar] to match all the skin tones.

What I was implying was that it is not something easily conveyed in a sentence or two, and rather than re-invent the wheel, there are quite a few how-to resources already out there to refer to.
