Before and After Virtual-style

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Thanks to PATRICE_E for pointing me to for virtual models. The program I used previously stopped working, so I never did an update. Before I get to the results, let me point out that after visiting Patrice_E's Spark page, I can say she IS an athlete, though she claims not to be one.

Here's the new before (224 lb) and after (143 lb) virtual me:

Edit: For folks who have asked about saving their virtual models, my version of Windows has a Snipping Tool that I can use to select what I want and save it to a .png file. At home, I have Faststone Capture, which I believe still gives you a free trial. I use it all the time when I telework to add content to briefing slides, so I bought the license. Here's their site:

    That simulator won't be any good unless they make one of the options "old lady". The shape may be helpful, but what about sagging skin? My belly and thighs are a lot lower than they used to be, and it isn't because of weight. At least she's wearing a bra. Oh my.

    Great progress, thanks for sharing! I will try this site as well since I haven't done a virtual model since about 4 years ago now.

    Love it! I lost my old site, too. I'll give this a try! You look good!!!
Like Patrice I don't know how to save this. I don't want to pin it to pinterest.
Can you help?

    Aw, thanks, my dear. I've done three athletic events as an adult, but am not sure that they qualify me for the title! ;) Just trying to keep moving... my biggest challenge, for sure.

I love seeing your virtual before and after models! I don't use Pinterest, so didn't know how to save and share mine. Is there another trick to it? Maybe PrintScreen and save/crop?
