So after a full year of hard work and relentless service my analyst has just taken holidays... for a month.

 

Being who I am I refuse to call him for his expert opinion on anything but the taste of beer, the internet will have to do for a while.

 

Soooo.... What I would like to do is send him a pic of me in a thumbs up selfie, with our server rack on fire behind me.

 

Can anyone help please?

GIMP would be the best free program to use for the "photoshopping", photoshop would be the paid equivalent. basically you need to find some images of flames on a reasonably plain background. You need to cut around their edges, then you need to composite them onto the background image (image of the room) and give them a bit of an alpha channel so they are somehwta transparent atleast round the edges. Then you need to get a picture of yourself, cut around the edges (make it easier for yourself and have the image taken infront of a green or blue screen) and composite in onto the background, on top of the flames image, using layers in a similar way to how the flames image was composited, but don't have an alpha channel this time. To make it work well try to have the lighting the same for each photograph being taken so that they will match up in the final image.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

Some people are amazing at editing images. Best of luck.

 

I'm new to using GIMP (was previously using Adobe Fireworks) so pretty much all I know how to do so far is copy/paste and use the auto-selection tool. :P  Just for fun here's my attempt (though that's not me in the picture obv).

Excellent effort, Hollowface !

 

One small improvement for the Mk2 version - a somewhat more vertical angle on the flames. Otherwise, very convincing.

Good eye, I hadn't thought of that. It's the little things that people often over-look.
