Photoshop isn't useful for trolling only. Montreal-based photographer Conor Nickerson has created a project where he has inserted his current self into his own childhood photos from 1997-2005, and the nostalgic results look perfectly real.

"While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would it look like if tried to photoshop myself today into them," Conor writes. "I gathered all the old hats and t-shirts that I could find and did my best to put myself into childhood moments which, aside from these photos, remain only a distant memory."

Conor says that one of the biggest challenges was matching the quality of the new photos to the old ones. "It involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo."

"Editing the pictures and looking at them so closely for so long takes a bit away from the shock value, but seeing the final images all together definitely is a bit strange! I feel like me and little me would have gotten along pretty alright."

I am not 100% sure but I think there was an empty chair because the shadow looks like there's an empty chair next to the kid... I could also be completely insane and have no idea what I'm talking about though cuz it's been a super long week :-)

Conor, that's extremely good work! I do a bit myself (using 1998 Paintshop Pro) so I get very good at noticing how well others do. You've done the Number One Right Thing: SHADOWS! Light angles and shadows. Yours are perfect! Grats!!
