  1. Jake is a handsome boy! He has the distinguishing gray around his muzzle that says, “I’m a gentledog!”

    Great tut, Chris! Thanks!

  2. Where did you get that great-looking picture frame and how did you further edit the image within the frame ???

  3. Well done sir! It’s refreshing to see someone who really knows Photoshop! Great project and great job!
