Here at the Fan Site we are lucky enough to be huge Jan & Dean fans, sadly, we have not met Jan & Dean in the "flesh" so to speak. So, we had a few spare hours the other day and thought we'd recreate our meetings that we never had with the legendary dup.
Meet Mark & Dean in the first picture. This was the first attempt at adding images together, and is pretty impressive. It helps that there's just a blue sky in the background. It actually feels like Dean was there!
As for the second photo, meet June & Jan! This was a little more complicated for a number of reasons. First off, we don not have any high-quality large photos of Jan, and secondly we decided to use a photo with a background.
If you're wondering how we went about recreating these meetings, then we used a free program called "Photofiltre". This is a quality photo adjustment package and art package from which you can gain quite professional results.
Basically, we used photos of ourselves, and cropped the area which we needed to use. Then we found our photos of Jan & Dean and cut out Jan & Dean from the original photos. This was quite easy using the softwares advanced features. We then of course had to paste Jan & Dean into the photos. This was done with a transparancy mode which made the whole thing easier.
Last but not least we added the fun dialogue to the photos, and n the photo of June & Jan we also added a frame.
Enjoy the pictures, and if you would like one donw of yourselves with either Jan or Dean (or both), then please send us an email and we will gladly work on it and add it to the site!
