At the end of The Shining, the character of Jack Torrance seems to appear in a 1921 photograph. Actor Jack Nicholson was composited into a vintage photograph, his head, collar and bow tie replacing that of an anonymous man.
Of the two images seen here, the blurrier one is from the end of the long tracking shot which glides down the hall toward the photo. The second, sharper image is from the subsequent extreme close-up. This sharper image was shot from an enlargement of a greater size than the 8x10 framed photo hanging on the wall.
Nicholson’s head was composited into different photos reproduced at several different sizes. This presumably afforded Kubrick with the ability to use an extreme close-up of the photo without compromising grain size or sharpness. 

This example reveals the fact that two different photos were used: Nicholson’s head rotates counter-clockwise from one image to the other, and his screen-right shoulder has had much more retouching done than in the other, partially obscuring the woman’s hand holding the cigarette.
