How To: Make A Ghost Photo In Photoshop

You might remember the post about scaring the bejeezus out of your friends with an app for the iPhone. It was a truly great trick to spread a certain kind of chilling fright among your friends that their house or your house was haunted by something or someone. Well, as good as it was, it was very limited to the characters already available in the app. If you had that app, you could surely spot the “joke” that someone might pull on you. This time, we’re venturing into another part of the making of a great ghost photo.

We’re going to use Photoshop as our deliverer of fright. It’s quite an easy trick and only requires some basic skills using Photoshop. However, it takes some preparation, some resources for good freaky pictures, a great sense for the mysterious along with a great imagination to help pull this little trick off.

Simply follow this video tutorial and you’ll be able to have a lot of fun with your friends and loved ones. However, it is advised that you don’t pull this one off on kids that are too young to see the joke in it. And always make sure you tell the “victim” that it was a prank photo and that it’s all made up… otherwise you could get yourself in a quite sticky situation. Just be sure though that in most cases there will be a retaliation on you… but you already know the tricks right?
