Face Swapping refers to the image-editing technique that involves digitally swapping the faces of two or more subjects depicted in a given photograph. The practice likely emerged in the 90s with advent of high caliber image-editing software and versatile selection tools.
A well-known variation of this practice is Facebombing, a similar technique that involves taking one face in a group and applying to all people in the photo.
