It seems to be the tip day of the week because this is actually the third tip I received by email today. Carlos send me the tip, thanks for that. Face in a Hole is a website where you can put your face, or the face of someone else, on well known images. Ever wanted to have the Rock's muscles, Audrey Hepburn's body or Wolverine's claws?
Face in a hole makes that possible. Just select a scenario from one of the many available. You can filter scenarios by categories if you like. Available categories are for instance Sports or Advertising. Once you have selected a scenario you have to choose a source for the face that you wants to put on the image. Here you can either create a shot directly using a connected web cam, or pick a suitable image from your computer's hard drive instead.
The image is then added as a layer to the scenario and you can move it around, zoom and rotate it so that the face fits perfectly with the rest of the image that the site has made available to you. The system tries to put the image that you upload in the correct relation to the scenario that you have selected. If this does not work out correctly, you can use the editing control provided by the service to get it right manually.
Once you are satisfied you can simply save the image and send it to your friends or upload it to your Facebook or Myspace profile. Lots of fun guaranteed!
The site operators have added lots of new categories in recent years. They have also created Android and Apple iOS applications that are not free but provide you with a similar functionality.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
We are committed to keeping our content free and independent, which means no paywalls, no sponsored posts, no annoying ad formats (video ads) or subscription fees.
