How To Multiply Thy Self

Eversince I posted that photo of multiple me, a lot have been asking how I did it. To answer all the questions all at once, here are the simple steps on how to do it:

1. Set your camera and lens to manual;
2. Take a couple of shots, placing yourself at different location. Make sure that the camera settings and location remains the same on all photos;
3. Open all photos in Photoshop;
4. Choose photo that would serve as your background;
5. Drag another photo (make sure you press shift key while dragging to align two photos together) to the first photo that would serve as the background;
6. Then after dragging the second photo into the first photo, the second photo should be on another layer on top of the first photo;
7. Add layer mask on the second photo;
8. Choose brush, choose color black (if your mask is white, otherwise if mask is black), paint on the second layer on the part where yourself is located on the backgroud photo;
9. Paint slowly and you'll notice that you can slowly see your photo appearing from the background photo even if you are painting on the second layer. Finish painting until you see two of you on the photo at different locations;
10. Click ctrl-E to merge the two photos;
11. Then drag the third photo and repeat the steps (from masking to merging);
12. Repeat steps to the rest of the photos. Finish.

Hope this workflow helps...

Verify Your Paypal Through E-ON

I decided to post here information for you people who would want to have their Paypal account verified. We all know that Paypal Philippines allows its members to send and receive funds but for members (like me) who don’t have or don’t want to have a credit card which you’ll be using for verification and for the expansion program there’s another option and it’s through UninonBank’s E-ON Cyber Account. The E-ON card is a debit card which you can use either as an ATM or as a debit card whether you transact through an ATM or through the internet depending on the situation you are in.

You may apply online or go to your nearest UnionBank branch and present 2 valid ID’s, it would be a better idea to apply directly because applying online still requires you to go to the nearest UnionBank the following day. Upon applying you will have to wait a week or so (well in my case the card arrived on the 8th day) before you’ll be able to get your E-ON card and be sure to call the bank before going there just to be sure that your card is ready to be picked up.

When you finally get your card, here are the things to do:
• You have to pay Php 350.00 (on the spot) for the annual fee and try to deposit about Php 150.00 to Php 200.00 that you’ll need later on when you apply for the Paypal expansion program.
• Then logon to and click on the E-ON cyber account button. Another window pops out and there you’ll register your E-ON card online for you to be able to transact online. Get your card ready because you are going to enter information when you register like your card number, CVV (the last 3 digits located at the back of your card), PIN, and etc. After filling out all those information you’ll have to wait 2 to 3 days before your E-ON card to be activated.
• After your card is activated log on to your Paypal account and click on the “verify a card” link or “add credit card” link or something like that to encode your card. Then you will wait for another 5 days to contact the UnionBank’s call center (0284186) to get your “4 digit number” that you are going to use to activate and verify your E-ON card.
• If you got the “4 digit number” encode it on your Paypal account by clicking on the “Expanded Use” something link and if the codes are correct then your Paypal account is now verified. Well Paypal charges you $1.95 automatically for the transaction (automatically deducted from your E-ON cyber account that’s why you have to deposit Php 150.00 to Php 200.00 upon getting your card aside from the Php 350.00 annual fee for this purposes) which will be refunded to you upon your first transaction.
• Now if you already have funds on your Paypal account and want to get it just transfer your funds from your Paypal account to your E-ON cyber account online and withdraw the money at your nearest ATM.

The steps are easy, right? Probably the most difficult part is the waiting part but overall it’s really so easy to apply for E-ON card and have your Paypal account verified. I was able to do it without any problem at all so I think you’ll be able to do it yourself too. I do hope that this information is a great help for you guys.
