Morphing the image of your face onto other people is done through a variety of techniques these days. Try using JibJab for a motion effect, Photoshop for your own creation or Face in Hole for a quick still picture. JibJab and Face in Hole require no graphic design skills, while Photoshop will take some basic design knowledge. Each of the procedures takes only minutes.

Step 1

Point your browser to JibJab.

Step 2

Search for a break-dancing-themed movie in which you can insert your face. Type "Break-dancer" or a similar search term in the search box at the top right of the screen. Click the magnifying glass icon or press "Enter" on your keyboard.

Step 3

Click the break-dancing-themed movie that you want to use.

Step 4

Photoshop

Step 1

Open two photos in Photoshop. One photo should have your face. The other should have a break-dancer.

Step 2

Select the "Lasso" took from the Photoshop tool palette. This is the icon that looks like a lasso. Drag the cursor around the edge of your face in the photo while holding down the mouse button. Create a loop around the face and release the mouse button. This will created an outline of "dancing ants" around your face to show that the face has been selected.

Step 3

Copy the image of your face by pressing "Ctrl" plus "C" or right-clicking your face and select "Copy" from the pop-up menu.

Step 4

Click on the face of the break-dancer. Paste your face onto the face of the break-dancer. Press "Ctrl" plus "Z" or right-click the break-dancer's face and select "Paste" from the pop-up menu. Your face will now appear on the face of the break-dancer.

Step 5

Size the your face to equal that of the break-dancer's face if necessary. Press "Ctrl" plus "T" to bring up the resize box. Drag the edges of the resize box so that your face fits the head of the break-dancer. Press "Enter" to confirm the resize.
