Not sure this goes here but hey!

Is there any way to edit the middle person (me!) out so it looks like it was just the two of them??

    It won't be easy, but I think it's possible--and you don't need clone stamp palms lol3.gif. The trick is to isolate the two women you want to keep on separate layers and position them as Sam did, moving the left woman into the position that you are occupying. The woman on the right should be on top, followed by the woman on the left. The position of her left shoulder will be a little tricky, I think. You should crop it so that only the columns of the building on the right show, not the lighter building on the left. Now create a new background layer with no people by using the clone stamp or content aware fill to extend the columns all the way down, or at least just a little past the position of the figures. Put this layer on the bottom and season to taste.

    How about this?
    CropOutMiddleGirl.jpg
    As Richard recommended.
    Made several copies of original layer.
    Isolated the girls from the background on one layer (Quick selection tool) and expanded the selection by 10 pixels (give content aware fill some room to work.) Did content aware fill on selection and used that as the background. Used stamp tool to fix it up where content aware didn't do very well.
    selected each girl in the end photo and pasted them to their own layer on top of the background with no girls and then positioned them together.

    As I posted earlier, I don't think it can be done convincingly. Multiple obvious telltale
    signs of alterations here.

    I bet it could be done; with the correct brush resizing and shaping. Would it be worth all of the work is the better question.
