Have you ever found a dog's collar so distracting you felt it spoilt a photo?

It's not uncommon. It's not always the easiest thing to edit out a collar and sometimes you the dog might need to be wearing one, particularly if an image has a commercial purpose.

So, in this Editing Toolbox, I'm sharing a quick trick to help you deal with collars that really distract you in all their colourful brightness to help you bring more harmony to the image.
