The sky is definitely the limit if you are a Photoshop expert. Some use the popular photo-editing software to troll people requesting for free photo enhancement favors, while others use it to get closer to world-famous celebrities.
And of course, there are also those who are like Conor Nickerson who use it for worthwhile, heartwarming personal projects. Apparently, the graphic artist and photographer took it upon himself to insert himself in his childhood pictures from 1997 to 2005.
So far, the results have been pretty epic and the internet has totally been blown away by his realistic output! The angles and lighting, in particular, are so convincing some might not realize that the photos were edited in the first place.
Conor Nickerson, who is based in Montreal, Canada, inserted himself into his old childhood pictures.
According to Conor:
“While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would it look like if tried to Photoshop myself today into them.
“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.”
Of course, it wasn’t an easy task to do as he encountered several challenges along the way.
He described that the process “involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo.”
He likewise added:
“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.”

Brutally Honest Comic Shows What Divorce Does To A Family
“This should be required reading before having children.”
It is a sad fact that, these days, divorce has become so common and the staggering statistics tell us exactly that. According to the American Psychological Association, about 40 to 50% of married couples in the United States end up in divorce – and the rate is even higher for subsequent marriages.
What’s even sadder, however, is when you consider that divorce involves not only the husband and the wife but also the children, if they have any. The young ones are the ones who are most affected and devastated.
This has been accurately captured on pen and paper by an artist who simply goes by the name ‘Mac’. His sad comic about divorce recently went viral on social media and he has even been featured on several websites. Moreover, his piece has also generated a lot of comments from those who both had similar and different experiences in their lives.
