Fattening up?

Someone sent some really amusing images of movie stars and what they would look like 100 pounds heavier. The images were really well done. They had "before and after" shots, so you could see the same image with a skinny and hefty star. The pictures were amazing. As one who has labored over things like this, I was astonished. I assume this was some Photoshop tool (Enlarge? Supersize?), but wonder if anyone knows how this might be done in GIMP?

Everything about the images is the same--these were not fatties grafted in as they had the same clothes. Some distortion tool was used to select just the one person and make them bigger. I am not interested in fattening people up so much as seeing how to manipulate one person exclusively, without the labor of fuzzy select, which is tedious and sometimes quite challenging against a varied background.

Ideas?

if anyone is intereted in seeing a sample image, e-mail me and I'll send one on.

Hi,

I haven't seen anything in the GIMP to do this, but I have seen some impressive level-set theory research that addresses this task very effectively. If you are interested, the person to talk to is Bryan Morse, morse@rivit.cs.byu.edu.
