Good friends of mine wanted to announce their pregnancy with their little furbabies. They took a series of photo but none of them turned out the way they wanted. So they asked for my help.
I started with this image that was further-est away to give me the most space on the bed; I then removed both dogs and cloned the blue of the bedspread;
I then cut out the dogs with their shadows from various other images so that both of them are sitting and looking at the camera; I took the male on the left from this image;
I took the female on the right from this image;
I then brightened up the image as well as enlarging the chalkboard announcement so it is easier to read and appears it is in between them rather than behind them. This was the final image they used.
