    Beyond Even The Power Of Pixel Dust

    Customer: “Hi, I’d like a copy of this photo, but I need one the people cropped out. “

    (The customer hands me a photo of three men, arms around each other’s shoulders in front of a brick wall.)

    Me: “Which one needs to be cropped out?”

    Customer: “The guy in the middle.”

    Me: “Well, we really can’t do that. That is more for a photo-refinishing artist.”

    Customer: “Can’t you just erase the guy in the middle?”

    Me: “We could, but then there would be a blank space were he once was. It would be pretty obvious.”

    Customer: “Oh, you won’t just see the wall behind him if he is removed?”

    Me: “No, the camera doesn’t take a picture of what is behind the person, just what you see.”

    Customer: “What if it was a digital camera?”
