About the Image(s)

My friend Catherine wanted a photo of herself holding her leg lamp as a tribute to "A Christmas Story". She created a Christmas Card from it to send to her family.
I took the original at her home and then superimposed her and the doggies onto a more suitable Christmas background in Photoshop. I added hats for the dogs and then took the final merge into Topaz Impressions to make it more artistic.

Kathy, I hope Catherine is pleased with this enhanced holiday card. You've done a great job tweaking it in a believable way that takes nothing away from the original and creates a warm and cozy greeting card.   Posted: 10/10/2020 11:49:54

Kathy, I'm sure your friend is pleased with her Christmas card! The dogs, the Christmas decorations, the fire, and the hats all add to a wonderful creation. Personally I like the sharpness of the original just as well as the Topaz rendition.

As an aside, I just looked at your bio in which the image is very dark. Perhaps you might want to redo it so we can see who you are.   Posted: 10/12/2020 09:20:50

Thanks Henry! Yeah, I'm such a mystery woman although you've seen me on Zoom.
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look around for a better shot.   Posted: 10/14/2020 22:12:10

An awesome Christmas card Kathy! The background is a perfect fit, warm and cozy and very well done. Of course, the best part is the lamp! I bought my husband one many years ago and he still has it. Your friend is lucky to have her Christmas cards already done!   Posted: 10/22/2020 23:25:35
