    Question About Fonts

    If somebody sends me a PSD file that contains a text layer in a font that is not installed in my version of Photoshop, what will happen when I open that PSD file? Will it display the text in the font that was sent, even though I don't have that font myself? Or will it default to some other...

    Specific Please remove the hanger strap

    Specific Can someone please make the background a more aesthetic sunset?

    I took the existing sky and enhanced the colors with a Linear Burn. I'm sure others will jump in, as well, with entirely new sunsets.

    Specific A semi-complicated edit!

    I'm not really a good enough artist to draw the missing portion of the boy's shirt, so this is the best I can do. It's passable, but not great. Anybody else is welcome to use this as a starting point to try your own versions.
