Picture Perfect-A Gorilla with a Monkey's Head!

Several years ago at a conference, I met a lawyer who talked to me about submitting photos as evidence at a trial.  She figured that photos soon wouldn't be allowed as evidence as it's so easy to doctor images. 

Learning how to edit photos is fairly simple and can be fun.  Adobe PhotoShop is a famous program professionals use to edit photos, but wow, is it ever expensive!  A free alternative is called GIMP.  GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program (GNU used to be a Linux operating system, but now GIMP works on Windows and Mac too). 

You can download GIMP from http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html
And this short video shows how you can easily create a gorilla with a monkey's head!  It provides links to a sample gorilla image and a sample elephant image.  Of course, once you have the technique down, who's to say you can't combine the head and body of a cat and a dog or anything else. 
Who knows, maybe you'll become the web's newest Van Gogh....Go on, give it a try, we know you want to try it! http://youtu.be/gtkwXGEk6QM
