I use GIMP-Gnu Image Manipulation Program to my manipulations. It is an Open Source (free) program that gives po'folks a chance to do what they can't do with Adobe Photoshop ($300 plus). There are definite differences, but GIMP allows you to do pretty much a lot. There are tons of how-to videos on YouTube.
I cut up the photos and then use the resizer on each part and put it back together. Usually it is only the body and arms. Then I smudge out the face and rough connects and there it is!
Before I started the diet blog, I was just playing around with GIMP and altering things. I had projects. I came up with Profane The Arts. My blog title pic is Norman Rockwell, Girl at Mirror, 1954.
Here are my favorites. Remember the David Hasslehoff drunk scandal? I added him to Henri de Toulouse-Latrec, Reclining Nude, 1897 painting and called it "Pommes Frites Avec Le Hoff". It was fun. And there was a time in my life that I would of loved not only a date with The Hoff, but thought it would be cool to end like this!

Las Vegas Update: Got a house. The one with the pool and no deposit if you clean the place was too small and really bad. This one is in the NW area and has no pool. Pools cost a lot to maintain...I bet. We got the kiddy 12 by 3 foot free stander. Will do.
Diet Update: What can I say it better work this week. I really should start exercising. I am packing and chasing behind the kids. post edit: goal is to break past the 250! Hump day and I am at 251.
If you don't know Princess Dieter, link here to see what diet plus exercise did for her. She is amazing! Her before and afters are drastic. Very much an inspiration to me and many more bloggies!
