My family took a vacation to Orange Beach this summer!  While on vacation, I took a lot of pictures with my iPhone.  To develop this manipulated image, I wanted to combine to of my favorite photographs from the beach.  First, I pulled up each photograph in seperate Paint windows.  I stretched the canvas that the sunset picture was on and minimized the window until I needed it later.  After that, I worked on removing the lenses in the sunglasses.  In order to do that, I used select free-form and traced the inside of each lense and removed them.  Next, I selected the whole image and used copy and paste to put it in the window with the sunset picture and put them side-by-side.  Using the select rectangle, transparent option, I selected the image that I wanted on top (the sunglasses).  I moved the picture on top of the sunset skyline picture.  Once that was finished, I moved the work canvas back to fit around the new picture.  Next, I opened the picture file in the Google program, Picasa 3.  I used the glow feature, followed by the HDR-ish feature and increased the strength and radius.  I applied the soft focus feature and focused in on the altered sunglasses and made the edges blurred.
