Step 1: Open up Photoshop

Picture of Open up Photoshop
ok. so first open up photoshop. but dont open up a new file yet!
now if you are using a digital camera go to step 3.
if you are going to use a webcam go to step 2.

Step 2: WebCam

Now then. webcam users.
For people with macs:
luckily for you, you have it easy. all you need to do is open up photobooth.
For people with windows:
open up your pictute taking software (of your choice) and proceed to step 3.

Step 3: Take the Photos

now we take the photos.
DO NOT MOVE THE CAMERA AT ALL DURING THE PHOTOS
if you are using a webcam keep it in the same position at all times and use your picture taking software to take 2 or more photos of yourself in different positions.
if you are using a digital camera just normally take 2 or more photos of you standing in a different positions

i suggest taking 2 photos instead of 3 or more like i have done; and also having them both apart from each other like explained in notes because its much easier and alot less hassle.

Step 4: Getting photos ready

well.
now you get your photos ready like so. if you have 2 photos this does not matter but if you have 3+ it does. first look at the photos , its easier if they are next to each other, Find the one with you furthest back. that is your starting photo. next find the one with you next in position from the back, that is your second photo. and so on so forth until all your photos have been mentally, or physically, noted down in a position.

can't you just place both picture over each other and set the top most layer to overlay? 
This is a picture that my sister and I made

I don't have a tripod, only a cam phone. but it still came out cool. I didn't have a camera when the original instructable came out, so I forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder.

So how did you manage the ones that overlap?
spikemp (author)  Dvldogg056 years ago
it's a bit more complicated but i used the magic wand to select the background then delete it.
You can also do this in Paint. Just take 3 pictures (make sure you don't move the camera) and then just overlap them all. Nicely done job though. +5/5 stars.

i suggest separating step 6 into at least 5 different steps, Its a good ible, but it looks like you either got bored, or couldnt be bothered. On the last photo in step six, you go straight from half a person to a full person without explaining what you have done at all. I know its your first ible, and im not being mean, im just pointing out that this needs alot more work. (btw, i actually work as a graphic designer using these programs everyday, and i struggled to follow it)

also, upon further reading, why do you need the dragon stopmotion software? i fail to see the need for this at all. Mac users can just use photobooth, and windows webcams come with picture taking software.

oh. i didnt know that. as you probably guessed i don't have windows. thanks for telling me.
