Turning a girl from young to old
Tutorials Photo Manipulation 30327 Views July 28th, 2010

I want to show you a simple way to add 20 years and 20 kg to a woman/girl. Add wrinkles, make the hair whiter, make her fatter and the aging process is complete.


Step 1 - Change the Hair Shape

Go to and download this photo.

It is a really big photo so you will have to resize it.

Now duplicate this layer so we can have both photos, before and after.

I will start with the hair..Go to Filter - Liquify and with the Forward Warp Tool make the hair bigger . Play with size and pressure to get a similar result:

Step 2 -Make the Hair Whitter

An old person has white hair so take the Dodge Tool and with the following settings gently dodge the hair.

Do the same for the Highlights

Now we will make whitter hair wires with a small size Dodge Tool.

Because this is not a video tutorial you will have to relay on your intuition. The result should be similar to this:
