With Charlotte Reeves

Tiffany was the winner of this month’s Edit My Photo challenge in the Unleashed Education community, with her very cleverly done leash removal and collar fix-up of Cleo the Dalmatian.

As the winner of the challenge, Tiffany submitted two RAW images for me to combine into one perfect shot featuring both dogs, using Photoshop.
