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

"While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would 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 those moments which, aside from these old photos, remain only distant childhood memories."

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

"Photo editing these images 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."

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!!
