All the hilarity of mud splattered on his face gets lost in the eye catching snot bubble playing peek-a-boo from the nostril. This is where photoshop comes in handy! Photoshop can turn the grossest picture of your child into a pure delight, just the way you want your friends and grandparents to view them; not by the coughing, snotty, disgusting, spit when they talk creatures that we know and love.
