How to use "face-in-hole" with Facebook

Updated July 19, 2017

FACEinHOLE is a free photo editing site that allows users to upload photos of themselves, friends or family to superimpose in a different "scenario." Each "scenario" has people with faces whited out where you can place a different face into the white space. After creating the image, you can share it on your Facebook profile. Using FACEinHOLE along with Facebook makes sharing fun joke photos with your friends a quick and easy process.

Open an Internet browser on your computer and visit

Click the "Create New Account/Login" link at the top right corner of the FACEinHOLE home page.

Enter your information on the FACEinHOLE signup form and click the "Create Account" button on the bottom of the form. You are now logged into your FACEinHOLE account.

Click the "Scenarios" tab. Select a scenario and the FACEinHOLE editor will load.

Click the "Upload" button on the FACEinHOLE editor, which is designated by an upward pointing arrow. Select the photo of the person you want to superimpose in the scenario on your computer and click "OK." You can also take an image from your webcam or a Facebook profile by clicking the appropriate buttons at the top of the FACEinHOLE editor.

Resize the face photo by dragging the white boxes around it with your mouse point. Rotate the photo by using the "Rotate" buttons at the top of the FACEinHOLE editor. Other controls allow you to flip the face image and also adjust the brightness, contrast and colour.

Click the "Save" button after you have placed the superimposed face to the area you want in the FACEinHOLE photo editor. Wait for the image to save and archive, which may take several minutes and you will be redirected to a page to share your photo.

Click the "Facebook" link under the "Put in Your Blog/Social Network" heading. Click the "Post" button and a pop-up window will appear with a Facebook login page.

Log in to your Facebook account to finish posting the FACEinHOLE photo on your profile.
