After four years of dating, Chloe Forsberg’s boyfriend had become a regular fixture in family photographs. But once they broke up, it made looking at family photos a little uncomfortable. Then Forsberg’s sister, Emily, came up with the perfect solution.
She replaced Forsberg’s former boyfriend with the beloved family cat, Woof. The results are absolutely hilarious, and the switch made it easy for Forsberg to laugh about the situation instead of feeling sad. What a smart post-breakup move!
“Emily is a very creative person and my family tend to deal with bad situations by using humor,” Forsberg told The Dodo. “So even though I was quite upset at the time, it made me laugh a lot!”
And when you see the photos, you’ll understand just how priceless this photo-editing handiwork truly is. Here are a couple of the images, which Forsberg generously shared on social media:

How great is that?
This got the attention of many people online, and the Twitter comments began to pour in.
Twitter user @youngec even asked if Forsberg’s sister could edit her photos next:
I have a photo that could do with being edited if she fancies sorting mine too?!?! 😂

Twitter user @DeanR4Real suggests everyone do this to their photos of ex-lovers:
This is what everyone should do, replace their ex with the family pet in all photos lol

Even the girls’ mom couldn’t help but admire her daughter’s Photoshop skills.
“Very proud of my girls…and cat,” Sharon Forsberg wrote on Twitter:

Other Photoshop Wins
This isn’t the first time a woman’s found the perfect solution to editing out an ex, either. One teen managed to Photoshop Ryan Reynolds into her prom photos after she and her date broke up just a few days after the dance:

Her photos got the attention of Reynolds, who wrote, “We should photoshop me over his yearbook picture next,” in a tweet.

Clearly, these women know how to make light of difficult situations!
Then there’s this guy, who goes by the name Average Rob on Instagram, who Photoshops himself into celebrity photos. Here he is conspicuously placed in one of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ family photos:
In this shot, he strikes a pose with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian … and also appears to be very pregnant:
Of course, Photoshop isn’t only for digital hijinks. This woman used Photoshop to include her husband, who was deployed on duty with the Air Force, in her maternity photos. The result is beautiful — and no doubt something the family will cherish for years to come:
