In case you can’t read the story behind that beautiful, moving photo, here it is:

“My husband and I just had our second baby. He’s such a good dad, so I wanted to give him a gift I knew he would love — a shot of him and our new addition. We had a great photo of the baby and my husband, but our dog ran into the shot at the last minute. With Photoshop Elements, I was able to quickly remove Jasper’s tail and create the perfect picture. I put it in a frame and I’m giving it to him for Father’s Day. I can’t wait to see his face when he opens it.”– Maren McCaleb, Boise, Idaho

I do, in fact, believe this story. Maren McCaleb sounds like a thoughtful partner and mother and a skilled Elements user.

But the beautiful, moving photo? I have… doubts.

Maybe Adobe’s marketing folks did this to protect the youngest McCaleb’s privacy. As Alex points out, every family needs a social media policy.
