      What a great idea! There are so many scenes/locations that could be done this way. I wish I had better Photoshop skills, I’d try it myself. ;)

      This is my absolute favorite kind of training module! I want to know how to make pictures like this. Do you need Photoshop or similar? :(

    • Timothy

      Some people do it by taking a photo of themselves holding a photo in the right place. I like those ones.

      I am working on pictures like these for Liverpool, it is pretty hard though! Esp the holding-the-photo-in-the-right-place one - I find it impossible for both the photo and the background to be in focus. Must be some electrickery going on with those ones.

      Nice to see the Library Hack entries on this blog. If you want to see more go to

      Photoshop or GIMP are great products for creating mashups. GIMP is free to download.

      If you want to learn about mash ups why not do our free online course which has two modules about mashups - Listen watch and mix it and Hack and Mash

      Even better if you live in Brisbane pop to the Edge and you can use GIMP and Photoshop of MACs for free

      Oh, that sounds great, thank you.
