Cool Free Website: Make Your Pictures Come Alive With MashFace And Your Web Cam
I recently found MashFace. Mashface is the creation of a 3D website development company located in Montreal's known as Xtranormal, Inc. They are the same company that lets you make short movies with 3D animation characters that say whatever you type. Mashface is in beta mode still.
MashFace lets users upload photos and do the cool tricks that have been seen on Conan O'Brien and Jay Leno. Take a picture of your friends and record your mouth over theirs using your web cam. You can make them say anything you want, even have your friends spend a minute announcing to the world how absolutley awesome you are.

Ack Bad Lighting
As you can see it looks like my daughter has a 5 O'Clock shadow. My lighting was bad in the room and I was too lazy to fix. If you experience the same thing, get a desk light and face it towards you. This should lighten your face up more so that you can match the photo better.

MashFace is Easy
MashFace takes about 10 minutes to get the hang of. I had no clue what to make my pictures say so instead I had fun going to LastFM and playing music in one screen while recording my mouth movements in the other. Once my minute was up (at this time only a minute can be recorded at a time), I mashed it together with my picture, edited it so that it fit the face right, and pushed publish. Now all my FaceBook friends and anyone I want can see my MashFace video's.
In your MashFace account your can set up your YouTube information so that after publishing, it takes just one button to upload to your YouTube account.
Mashface is free. It's a fun little Web 2.0 website to kill some time and annoy your friends with.
