Superimposing images to make twins of the same person

I've seen this done, so it must not be too difficult, but I couldn't figure out how to do it nor find a good guide for it. I want to take several pictures of the same person in from the exact same camera position and merge them together to make it seem like there are 2 of more copies of the person. What is the best way to do this in Gimp 2 or Cs4?

Open all of your images in CS4 and then manually overlap them in consecutive layers. I'm not sure how to explain this quickly, but there are tutorials online that explain how to do it. Something kind of like this maybe?

I did this one recently by manipulating seven photos with the "Scene Cleaner" function in Photoshop Elements 7. You have two images side-by-side and you draw over the elements in one photo that you want to add to the other photo. It's quite easy and works well as long as there's enough space between objects that you're moving around.

Here are a couple of tutorials that should help you out.

Multiple Personality Editing - Tutorials

Cloning Tutorial - Tutorials

It really isn't that difficult with the proper planning before you shoot.

Good luck.
