it's totally possible in PS. My question is what is it that you want to achieve? You have 2 different dogs and are after a mutation of sort? It would require a lot of transforming, liquefying etc. Tell me what do you want to achieve and I will tell you more :)

These are my sisters 2 shelties. I was hoping to have both dogs in 1 single photo, sort of like having 2 pictures in 1 single frame if that makes sense.

lovely babies! sure, it's doable. The lighting seems similar but not identical, so selecting the girls carefully and putting them onto a lovely background would look gorgeous :) How familiar are you with PS?

I have Elements 10 as well as LR5. I mostly use LR5 and rarely use Elements.

I'm not familiar with just Elements 10. I have a full version of PS CC but after doing some research I found this for you https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=lQjCUy7gdj8external link
LR doesn't deal with layers, I use it for cataloging and some basic processing and that's all. Have a look at this video and hopefully you merge the shots Bogino :)

Can you not reshoot with them both in the frame? It might be worth the many retakes until you get what you want... because the work involved to put these two together can be time consuming and challenging to make it look natural. That's what I'd rather do.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

Well, that's one simple way of doing it. I thought you were after a perfect image with a common background for both dogs which would require a lot of fiddling in PS. If that's what you were after than you've done it :)

Hi Bogino.

Do you mean like this?

This was really quick and dirty in Photoshop, with some more time spent on the image, better results would be achieved.

Just wanted to mess for a couple of minutes before i retire for the night 8)

Oh, and btw gorgeous dogs.
