Photoshop is not used only for trolling. It can also be used for personal humor. That’s why Montreal-based photographer Conor Nickerson, created a project where he inserted his current self into childhood pictures from 1997-2005. And let me tell you, the results, look pretty real.
“While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would it look like if tried to photoshop myself today into them,” Conor writes on Facebook. “I gathered all the old hats and T-shirts that I could find and did my best to put myself into childhood moments which, aside from these photos, remain only a distant memory.”
He also said that a big challenge was to match the quality of the pictures with the old ones: “It involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo.”
“Editing the pictures and looking at them so closely for so long takes a bit away from the shock value, but seeing the final images all together definitely is a bit strange! I feel like me and little me would have gotten along pretty alright.”
