If you’re a bit of a celebrity fanatic and have some time to kill, MorphThing is definitely worth a look. This simple web application enables you to take any two portraits and merge (or morph) them together. The results can range from a genetic experiment gone horribly wrong to a gorgeous new person, but regardless of the outcome, MorphThing can be loads of fun.
The site includes hundreds of popular celebrity photos ready to be morphed with anyone (or in some cases, anything) you choose. If you work with two preexisting portraits you can see the results in seconds, while uploading your own portraits will take a bit more work as you’ll need to define key facial features. From there, you can choose to share your “beautiful” creation via email, mobile phone, and even add it to your Facebook or MySpace pages. From the examples we’ve seen at MorphThing, beauty is most certainly in the eyes of the beholder.
