The Body Swap Comic has been out of commission for some time now. It was one of my earliest creations, and I'm sad to say, one of the first to be stolen right here in the good old U.K. I'd have given anything to recoup my money. But with the economic climate as it is, I feel I have to shut down this company. "It's the economy, dear, and we've had enough of bloat," I told my husband last week, sadly.
And here we are almost three months since my last update and all the while Body Swap has continued to go up and stay up. I am thankful to everyone who has supported me over this difficult period, but sadly, it's not so easy. On a happier note, I am pleased to say that Body Swap is still going strong, despite my absence. "We're still going to have our monthly two-for-one special," I informed hubby this week, happy to see the smile on her face. Two for one, I thought.
Despite my sadness over Body Swap's recent problems, I'm nevertheless pleased to say that, while I can't do much to salvage it, I have kept tabs on developments at my blog (wonderful site you'll find at the foot of this article). And even though my own skills in Photoshop and in sketching seem to be somewhat lacking, I can't help recommending this fantastic program to others. I've also tried it out on friends of mine and they too were impressed. So, if you feel interested in swapping bodies, don't hesitate to check out the full resolution version on my blog.
For those who may not be aware, Body Swap is a tattoo removal system developed by artist David Fidalgo (of the band Weezer). It uses a series of video cameras to take high-definition photos of your body and then "swaps" them with another person for you. The results are impressive, to say the least. According to the Body Swap website, you can swap your body with any man or woman in the world for as little as $99.
To perform the swap, simply send an email to the company with your photo attachment. Your video will then be sent to the service. They will create a new body for you - or you can choose to have your current body created again. The service will also offer instructions on how to get started. You'll need a computer, internet connection and a Body Swap Comic installed on your PC in order to start.
The instructions are easy to follow. First, select the body you want to swap and follow the instructions listed on the Body Swap Comic itself. Choose a pose that you think will best suit your body, then download the Body Swap Comic from the site to your computer. Select the comics on the Body Swap Comic and open them.
If you do not have any pictures of your own body - and most people do not - a preview of the proposed look can be provided for you by the company. Click on this to view a three dimensional preview of what your new body will look like. After you have finished viewing the images, you will be asked to sign in to the service. After you have done so, you will be asked to upload the pictures you have taken to your account.
The process is easy. It's fun. It's safe. A body swap is definitely a unique experience. What are you waiting for?
After selecting your body, a message will be sent to your email address instructing you to download the files associated with it. You will then be asked to Upload the pictures. The last step involves a simple click of your mouse. Your new body will appear on the screen. Try it!
One thing to keep in mind: make sure you read the comic before uploading it to your website. There may be some content that you are unfamiliar with. This is completely normal. The good news is that if you run into any problems, you can always take the comic to another web page and contact the author of the story. There are many different forums dedicated to swapping stories and pictures, so no worries there.
Finally, the cost. As a member, you will pay about $5.00 per month. For the convenience, we recommend that you become a platinum member and receive instant downloads. Not only does this save you time, but it also means you don't have to wait for your comic to be delivered. Enjoy!
