    And they're all framed exactly the same by using a tripod...but the subject moves around and it gives the image that there is more than one of that "person" (if the subject is a person) in a single photograph. I've taken the photos already but I need to find out how to get the final product.

    Anybody have any links to tutorials, or can explain how this can be done? One step further, can anybody help me out? I can host the photos and maybe somebody can do them. Whichever...I just need these done by tonight. Thanks!

    Edit: Found out its called a Multiplicity Shot. Anybody have any EDU's or can explain how the PP is done?

    I'm not so sure, I'll look up some examples real quick and confirm.

    Edit: I remember reading about HDR, but isn't HDR just so you can get the right exposures in places when a single shot can't do it? Same principle I guess.

    I used my own camera with a timer...so whatever crap comes out of this Minolta Z3 will be my own garbage. (I shouldn't have sold my D100)

    Just paste all of your photos into the same PS file. Start with the top layer and select around the person with a lasso. Hit ctrl+i to inverse selection and delete. Might want to feather it a little bit as long as the subjects aren't too close to eachother because the lighting probably won't be 100% perfect and you don't want any visible seams. Rinse and repeat and just leave your bottom layer alone.

    This was my first attempt at it 2 years ago......it was on my 300d with the kit lens, it was cool but it was hard to keep him still since all I had was one light overhead.
