Well there are a number of different programs out there to morph photographs but for this I'm going to show you one I use called Abrosoft FantaMorph (I use the Deluxe one). If you want to check it out they have a 30 day trial offer.

So what is the difference between a animated gif and a Morph. Well a animated gif is generally just a flash like slide show in a pic where as a morph is where the one picture turns into the other.

First when you go to use this the first thing that will pop us is a box asking what you would like to do: Morph, Warp or Multi Morph. For this example I choose the first "Morph"

Next it will ask you to "Import Source" it will give you 2 fill in boxes for you to browse your computer for the two pictures you would like to merge.

Here are a few tips with choosing those pictures.

  • choose pictures that are the same size if not resize the picture
  • choose pictures that are similar (like both head shots and not one close up head shot and one full body shot)
  • if your doing heads make sure they are looking in the same direction, if not flip one of them around.

Next step it will ask if you would like to "edit the source image". This is if you would like to edit one or more of the pictures for items such as brightness, color......

Next you will be asked about movie size and movie length. Now the default per frame is set at 15. You can change this. The lower the number the faster the picture will change the higher the number the slower it will change. You can adjust this number later so dont worry to much. Its hard to tell what to choose till you see if morphing.

Once you have your pictures then it will place them on the page as "image one" and "image two". Next click on the button in between the two pictures (see the pink arrow). Then you will want to start placing marker dots on the pictures. Don't worry they will NOT show up in the final product. They simply help to make the images flow better. What you need to do is start clicking on key items in the photo. Once you click on a spot in image one it will appear as another dot in image two. You need to go to the dot in image two and move it to match. Above my first dot was in my eye. That dot appeared above the cats eye. I then moved that dot to the cats eye so we matched.

OK again make your dots and match them up. Key areas to hit and match are: eyes, nose, corners of the mouth, ears, shoulders, chin, top of forehead. For full body match the arms, legs, feet, hands, waste. I think you get my point. Where the green arrow is pointing that is the speed you can adjust the number here. Again the lower the number the faster it will move, the higher the slower it will move. The pink arrow is to animate it and make it morph. You can do this and then stop it and adjust the speed to you get it just how you would like. You can also change around the dots if need be. The blue arrow is to export (save) the image. Once you choose it you will see this pop up:

Now you want to change a few things here so hit "options" here

Your going to want to make sure its saved as a "Animated gif". Second your going to want to make sure the box for "exporting Looping Animated GIF" is chosen. If not it will not loop. For the GIF speed change it to match what it says on the original page if you changed it.

Once you save it you can upload it to your photobucket and share it. Ok now that you know how to do it I would love to see some Morphed pics

Here is my final product. Now I will say for some reason photobucket loves to speed this up but it is slower on my pc (go figure).

NOTE: If your planning on photobucketing the pic then what ever speed you wanted double it. Photobucket really speeds it up. Like the pic above I liked it at 35 however I saved it and photobucketed it at 70

If your not looking to morph but only want to make a animated picture then check out this thread: How to make an animated picture .gif

Re: How to Morph a picture

If anyone has any pictures they want me to morph you can send them to me and I'll morph you. I've done this alot so I'm pretty fast at it. You can either post the pics here and I'll morph them or PM me with them. You can morph about anything including you with say a super hero or a anime. Another example I morphed me with a anime cartoon

Anyone want a morphed avatar here? I can resize the pics if your not sure how to do that too Smile
