          Photos tend to look creepy when animated by Ch, because of the "uncanny valley" effect. But if you're brave, here's the general idea:

           

          1) open the photo in photoshop, place on a Face layer

          2) select the right eye, cut it into a new layer, name it +Right Eye

          3) turn the eyeball for that new layer so you can see the underlying face

          3) command-click on the Right Eye icon to set the selection from the eye shape

          4) select the Face layer, and shift-delete to remove the eye, choosing Content-Aware Fill to get skin to fill in where the eye used to be

           

          repeat for each body part that you want individual control over (see the template puppet by doing File > New Puppet in Photoshop for all the special names to use for auto-rigging)
