Photo Manipulation

Mugshot Yourself

One of the great time-wasting guilty pleasures the internet has to offer (besides videos of cute cats) are websites that allow you to easily—and comically—manipulate portrait photos. We written before about website that will turn a photo of you into a Simpsons character and another that will render it as a yearbook photo from the 1950s, 60s, 70s or 80s.

Now, from some creative folks at the BBC, comes Mugshot Yourself, a website that can turn a portrait into a mugshot. And not just any mugshot, but an old timey mugshot, the sort of sepia Wanted poster picture seen in so many silent movies.

Yearbook Yourself

You might find it a little scary to imagine what your yearbook photo would look like if you were in the Class of 1952, or 1974, or 1990. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to see how other people would look. Yearbook Yourself is a website that let’s you upload anyone’s pic and gander at their theoretical yearbook photo. The hard part is finding a good photo — you need one in which the subject is looking straight at the camera without anything obstructing the face. So, if your photo victim has bangs or is wearing glasses you are out of luck. Once the photo is uploaded simply resize it, make some adjustments, click on the class year you want to see and voila! Not useful, perhaps, but lots of fun.
