It dawned on me recently that I’ve been working with Adobe Photoshop since 1997. I recall very well the days before Photoshop had layers and the massive pain it was to save a version before making any changes to how I edited a file. The good old days weren’t so good.

Flash forward 22 years: I received a request to edit a few images for a client who creates stop-motion animations. A few objects were placed in the camera frame, and the client needed the tape that allowed for proper placement of the objects to be edited out along with a seam in the table top.

Below are a few animated before & after gifs I made to show my work.
