    Aye photoshop is the tool for the job. Make sure both photos have similar lighting and are shot from the same sort of angle and it'll make life a lot easier.

    Years ago I had to comp an image of Cherie Blair and a few of her cronies for a newspaper - it was done from a few pictures, just had to take all the smiling faces and merge them into one final image.

    I did a similar thing just the other week using Serif's PhotoPlus 9 (a lot lot cheaper than Photoshop!). I had a trial copy of Photoshop and tried for ages before giving up. With PhotoPlus, I was able to do this, including slightly resizing and rotating the heads to get them to look right, in about 15 minutes.

    This is a big problem with photoshop. I think I would be safe in saying that there will be nothing you can do in Serif that you cant do in photoshop whils't ther are millions of things you can do in photoshop that you cant do in serif. The problem is photoshop assume you know what your doing and let you get on with it, there is not a lot of wizard type features. And it's miles better in that respect now (CS) than it was in v.5.
    It's still the best tool for the job though.

    if you use photoshop use the lasso tool with a feather of around 3-5 then use the hue/saturation and colour tools to match up with the original
