The GroupShot App
Have you ever taken a group shot or a series of shots where not everyone is cooperating? I do all the time, and it mainly involves my children.
I was told about this app, called GroupShot, that can fix a group image by replacing the desired details from one image to another’s, so I downloaded it. At first I thought it was going to be a joke, but when I tried it I was impressed.
The images that this app produces are significantly smaller than what you put into the app, so be aware that you may have quality issues with low grade images.
Here are two images where my children were cooperating at different times:
My daughter has a great expression while my son is not paying attention in the first image, and they switched roles in the second. Before my daughter started cooperating again, my son got up and moved towards me.
Select the images you want to use in the app. I chose the image I wanted changed first and then the one with the best feature of my son.
You can use multiple images to select from, but you don’t want to overload the program. It tends to crash. After you select the images, press Done.
As you can see, the first image is in the field of manipulation.
I select my son’s face with my finger, and it automatically selects the area of the other image to replace it. I select the desired image and the magic begins.
After the magic is performed, I can now post it to Instagram and Facebook. Give it a try. I know you will not be disappointed.
Here are a couple other examples:
Working with kids is like herding cats, and the more you have the harder it is to get the shot. (They’re still cute if I do say so myself)
