I'm sorry for your loss. I recalled a thread in the Extreme Makeover forum with this type of issue:http://forums.steves-digicams.com/xt...-119105-a.html

The techniques needed will be very similar. Most high end photo editing programs can do what you need, Photoshop Elements, and Paint Shop Pro being two popular ones.
If you need help with specific techniques, try posing a sample in Extreme Makeover, and you should get all the help you need.

what your wanting to do require some experiance in using photoshop.
basicaly, you need both pics open, then with move tool get your fathers pic and drag and drop in onto the other picture
you now have 2 pics on 2 layers, now u have to cut out your father and delete what you dont want, thats the time consuming bit, zoom in and take your time.
you may have to scale him up or down to fit with the other people on the picture.
something like this can take hours to look convincing, even to an experianced user

well when u drop in the pic of your father u will find he is bigger due to the higher resolution, use the freetransform tool to make him smaller, if u hold the shift key and drag a corner inwards itll reduce the size but keep it in proportion.
thats the best way to get everyone in scale

G'day all

This task is almost identical to one of the exercises from my photoshop elements training workshops. If the OP [or anyone else here] would like a PDF showing step by step, PM me with your details and I'll send you a copy of the exercise

Regards, Phil

You can edit the image by adding layers in the Photoshop which will need expertise in Photoshop as it is not that easy. It also depends on the image if they can be combined or not and set them in proper order.
