My Mom recently told me a story about the death of her friends dog Olive. Even though it's just a dog, they are very much a part of our families. I know when my two dogs die I will be an emotional mess. So when my Mom emailed me last week asking if I knew how to crop people out from photos I responded with confidence, knowing that I've only done this once or twice before. But I love a photoshop challenge and a chance to expand my skill set. Below you will find the altered photos I created in photoshop followed by the original image. Olive is the yellow lab in the middle.

The feedback from my Mom's friend was very positive, and I have to say I'm pleased as well.  But above all I was happy to create these images to help a family in a time of their loss.
