Ancient Aliens guy photoshop help

fun

#1

I have this plan for the next HTM School on Grid Cells that involves using this graphic:

Can anyone help me photoshop out the man in the image and fill in the background somehow? My photoshop skillz are a bit underdeveloped, and I imagine there is some talented person in our community who might do this in a few minutes?

You can do it yourself in a few minutes: [https://autoclipping.com].


#3

I don’t want to remove the background, I want to remove the man and fill in the background.


#4

Saved as ‘transparent png’. You can copy the cutout png over any background (photo) you like. Probably any picture editor will do.

Getting consistent scene lightning is a whole different matter…


(Edit: saw some imperfections in the big one)

He’s actually after the opposite (background, not the guy). Procedure is something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8_ge9RxcSw

I’ll give it a shot, though this is a lot of space to fill so can’t promise anything…

BTW, @CPegels you can get a lot cleaner cut of the man with a little bit of care. I posted a video about this some time back for my mother-in-law who runs a sweets shop and doesn’t have any graphics skills: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmqIEJ8MP7c
In particular, from: https://youtu.be/bmqIEJ8MP7c?t=3121

Out of curiosity - instead of messing with that image can you look elsewhere to get what you are looking for?
I like to play with google image search to find an image that meets some sort of requirements.
Describe a scene and see what it comes up with.
I love good AI inspired tech when it works.

Here is an ok attempt


#8

My guess is he is planning to some special effects involving dubbing himself into this background to talk about hexagons…


#9

WOW! I don’t think anyone could ask for better than that. It looks great!


#10

Now i’m curious to see the end result!


#11

Thanks Paul I can use that.


#12

LOL,

The reading skills are a little rusty. I could have never pulled this off, didn’t even know this was possible at all, great work!

Now you can copy the guy back in if you feel the need.


#13

No human could have done that - more proof of ancient alien technology!

Checkmate flat alien deniers.

Hi Matt, I’m sure you have heard of Deepfakes. In case, you like to take a video and lay your face over the person in the video.

Even the New York Times has an article of how you do it:

Will HTM let NN take up the whole “fame” in this area? Cough… :wink:


#19

These memes are too dank for this reality. Looking forward to what devious concoctions you’re planning with this Matt.

Hey - now if only you still had the long hair from the Humanity talk …

A little hair gel, a bit of fluffing it up …
