My partner and I recently did a couple of props up for a friend's Chopper re-enactment. He was so happy with the props we did for his Pulp Fiction breakfast scene, (located here)-
that he wanted us to do a cameo as the "nit-wits" in a picture he shows in the scene.
Now I have Photoshop, but I'm not all that proficient with it, so I was happy with how my overlay of Linda and I came out on the original background.
Here's the original shot from the film.
This was a bit of a rush job, I threw it all together in one arvo, so we could have done better with matching the clothing if we'd gotten off of our arses sooner.
We threw the camera on the tripod in the backyard and put an old sheet up behind us on the clothes line.
I then put the picture in Picasa, a free photo editing program to crop the image and grain it up some to try and match the age of the original picture. I'm sure I could have done it in Photoshop but like I said I'm just not that familiar with it yet.
I used the quick select tool in Photoshop to remove the background from our shot. Man it was super easy with the sheet as a background! I'm sure once I get used to it Photoshop will be an awesome tool.
Then I layered it over the original and tidied up a few things to get it looking like this. It's far from perfect, but it was fun to do and looks okay for the couple of seconds it's on screen.

Has anyone else ever modded a film image to include themselves? I know there's more than a few as avatars, but a full size picture?
