    So awesome! If I wanted to do this with 26 kiddos who I could only photograph 1 at a time, how would I get them all onto the same picture? The goal is to have them all flying over a city they painted so the background is their art but they wouldn't be photographed in front of it. Make sense? Thanks for any tips you can offer. :)

    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)

    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.

    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.
