    Ok well not really need, but I'm trying to go for a creative photograph here. Could someone please open up Photoshop and remove my eyebrows, eyes, nose, and mouth, leaving me with a smooth, blank face?

    Thanks to whoever does it. :)

    And for anyone who's curious, those are the blank overhead signs on the 710 freeway stub in Pasadena, CA.

    It's a Photo Booth backdrop. You know, "Drag Backdrop Here", then "Step Out of the Frame... Background Detected". I wasn't actually there. :p

    Not rocket science...

    Here man, go get GIMP (free PS sub)
    http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

    and look for a blur / smudge filter to do it yourself... you know 'teach a guy to fish' and you owe it to your mac and yourself to learn a little trick like that. Plus think of all the other stuff you can play with once you know how to do it y'self.

    Please?

    Looks weird without a face but I imagine you have additional plans for the photo.

    Excellent! Thanks, it's awesome and I appreciate it. :)

    I'll probbaly tinker around with different ideas for the photo, but basically I just wanted go to for the profoundness of my face being blank just like the freeway signs.

    Here's my version. It's not that great but it is worth it.

    Umm - if the blank face is an integral part of the composition, and if someone else has blanked the face for you - you shouldn't really claim this as "your" photo. It is a collaboration, and wherever you show it you should make sure both names. Don't you think? :)

    Follow Up Questions: Did you take the photo of the blank highway signs?

    Are you serious? :eek: It's not like he is selling it or profiting from anything, it is just for fun... :) In any event, if you were into restoring vintage cars and the project was finally complete would you then list every single person who did any work or fabrication on the car. ie. "Well thanks, I know it looks nice but John Doe actually painted it, Joe Schmoe balanced and installed the white wall tires, Guy Smiley installed and restored the radio but I came up with the concept, colour and overall restoration design not to mention sourcing all the parts. etc. etc." Just as an example.

    Exactly... and what's with the thread bumping? Geez, this thing's over a year old. I only used it as a MySpace pic; it's not like I was selling it to an art museum and profiting off you guys or something equally sinister. :rolleyes:

    Yes, I am serious. No, I didn't know the final use for the image was going to be.
    Intellectual property is not the same restoring a vintage car. And, by the way, you may have noticed that when a restored vintage car is written up in a magazine they in fact do usually list most of the contributors.

    Another difference is that someone restoring a car has spent considerable time researching who should paint it, consulting with them or others on which paint and what colour to paint it, and then finally goes into the paint shop and at least initially talks to the paint shop people about painting it. Throwing an image onto a Mac rumour website, and asking a random stranger to "... leave[] me with a smooth, blank face?" is not quite the same.

    Technically, I didn't bump.... but I am guilty of responding to a bump. I hadn't noticed the original date. Sorry.

    I am a professional photographer, so I am sensitive when people claim other people's work as their own. I didn't know what the intended use was. I also don't know if you added a caption like "Like what I did."

    Just hypothetically, what if someone took your Facebook photo (the one above), added some text to one sign, and posted it as their own photo. Would you mind. What if they started to make money off it. Would you mind? What if they made $$millions? Now do you mind?

    Well I guess that's the risk you take when you post anything on the Internet. I never made any claims that I made it. And for the record, the caption was "All these blank faces".

    Also for the record:

    S'okay... I gave my work away.

    Now, if I saw it on the next best-selling CD cover, I might contact a lawyer.

    But anything short of that... good luck with it.
