  2. Hi Terry,
    Could you not have simply masked the lower right part of the bridge so that you used the stone entirely from the one image (without the mom’s foot)? Seems like it would have been faster and cleaner than trying to do a content-aware fill to blend in the two exposures.

    1. Hi Trevor,
      As we all know there are dozens of ways to do the same thing in Photoshop. I chose this way, you’d choose your way. The client was very happy with the results.


      1. You’re entirely right, Terry. There are always multiple ways to accomplish the same task in Photoshop and I didn’t mean to slag on your tutorial. I just thought the alternative approach would eliminate having to blend the two exposures. I’m not at all surprised the client was pleased. It looks great.

  4. Hi Terry,

    i have a question: How do you get the “Adobe”-Label to show up next to the Spotlight-Icon? How can i add my own label?

    Best regards

    1. That is the Name of the “User” I’m signed in as. If you enable multiple users in OS X, the name of the current user will be displayed there.
