    Very intersting. Thanks for sharing!

    That's a very good tutorial, thank you so much for sharing! (By the way, I was attracted by the main photograph - it's amazing and sooo hilarious :D)

    That's great Ben! I'm glad that I could help! I'd love to see your results!

    In GIMP you use the Layer Mask
    See my Instructable here https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Levitation-Photo-Using-GIMP-a-Fr/
    This instructable is better called a first draft, but I'm learning as I do it. I hope to improve it later.

    It is called gimp. The procedure is slightly different in gimp but it will totally do it

    Would like to learn how to do this. I don't have Photoshop but do have GIMP. I tried the procedure in GIMP without success. Maybe the procedure is a little different between Photoshop and GIMP. If you know how to do the procedure in GIMP, please post.
