This sounds interesting:

What is the face of London, New York, Paris? What does a Londoner, a New Yorker, a Parisian look like?

The Face of Tomorrow attempts to find this face by taking photographs of the current inhabitants and compositing their faces to create a typical face. What we get is a new person - a mix of all the people in that city. A face that doesn't exist right now, but a face, it seems, of someone quite real

For $15 the firm will take pix of two people and blend them to see what their children might look like.

Presumably you could do the same with photoshop and layers? Anyone got any ideas how?

Sure Andrew..there are a million "morphing" tools out there. Just do a google search for morphing tools. Back in College '96 there was a free download that allowed you place two pics side by side and you put key points on them. Like the tear ducts, around the eyes, mouth, nose etc..and with a hit of a button , it would convert the two images morphed into one. We joked around with offspring in our classes all the time with this software. I'm sorry I cannot think of the name of it but being that long ago the technology can only have got better and more options for different software available.

Have fun..just search...it's out there.

Hmm ... I feel a good small business idea coming on.

Thanks Vander
