I have a confession.
I love Photoshop.
I love Photoshop because it helps me create The Perfect image out of images that might normally be not so perfect.
For example… late this summer Heather and I took all 4 kids on a little excursion to get a picture of all 4 of them together. Have you ever tried taking a picture of a 5 year old, a 4 year old and two 2 year olds? Two of those kids whom are sick to death of the camera and make god-awful whiny faces when forced to sit for 2 seconds?
Well… needless to say the task wasn’t so successful.
I had a couple “possibly good” images. This one of Porter and Aubri… cute, right? Well, here’s another confession. Porter’s head is actually cloned in from a different picture. Yep. I had a picture where Aubri looked so cute and Porter looked like butt. And a picture where Porter looked cute and Aubri looked like butt. So, I did a little Photoshop wonder and voila! A great shot of the two of them.
And then there’s this cute picture of Hudson and Addi. Cute, right? Well… another confession. I did the same thing with this picture as I did with Aubri and Porter’s…. I had a picture where one kid was great and the other not so great looking… made a combination of the two and voila!
Now here comes the FUN part! I really wanted a picture of all 4 of them together. And I didn’t have one. But, I did have two great pictures with two kids in each. So… a little Photoshop magic and VOILA! The perfect picture with all 4 kids looking sweet as ever. 🙂
