    Hey guys,
    (Please no flaming because you hate rap or whatever)
    Well I'm sure some of you here have seen and heard T.I.'s new album 'Paper Trail'.
    Well I love his album cover and i was wondering if anyone here knows how to put my face on the album with the cool style.
    Thanks for the help

    thats not a bad idea i have a theory

    u know u can make the comic ppl so do that and use tha selection tool to erase most of the white then get a pic of scraps of paper and finally put the comic pic of ur head on top of the pic of scraps of paper and set it on overlay.then play around w/ settings 4 a while.
    and yes i no it wont quite be the same quality.

    just my take on it not tested yet (i will probably try 2morrow)

    TY 4 the gr8 idea


    Off Topic:the album = pure gold

    Use smart scissors to crop out your face. Its on photobucket.
    Then use photoshop to apply a gradient on your face.

    MAKE SURE ITS A PNG

    The album is great. I like all the songs on it. I haven't liked all the songs on T.I.'s CD since Trap Muzik.


    Anyways, I don't Photoshop no more, but I got a couple ideas on how you can do this.

    1) There's areas on the picture where it's just papers. You could use the selection tool and select those parts and past it over the face and try to make it mix in. It shouldn't be hard because the the background is pretty random and there's no order to it. I would just paste over the face and not the hair and neck. Then when you make the background, you can try and add your face and try out different blending options.

    2)It looks as if you can just fill in the dark spots with colors from the lighter parts. For example, you would get the color picker tool(I don't know if that's the name of it) and then just fill in the specific ares. Since you'll be pasting your face over the areas it doesn't need to match so perfectly. I assume you would have to mess with the blending options.

    3)Just paste your image over the other one and see how it looks. Mess with the blending options though. Since the original image is sorta transparent, this could work.


    I don't know if you understood any of that. I would try it for you, but I'm too lazy.

    I don't think my husband would appreciate you removing his face.
