A Grieving Father Asked Online To Photoshop His Deceased Baby, This Is How The Strangers Responded


Normally when we ask for Photoshop help online, it doesn’t end up pretty well as internet trolls flooded the web. However, the artistic playfulness of these people has their own limits. In fact, they can also respond and give you the most solemn digital altering that you’ll ever see. And this is what a grieving father was thankful for.

Nathen Steffel, from Ohio, is grieving after his newborn daughter passed away after a long battle in the children’s hospital.

But he had one request that he made on Reddit, he asks them to Photoshop and free her daughter from the machine surrounding her.


He wrote: “My daughter recently passed away after a long battle in the children’s hospital. Since she was in the hospital her whole life, we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes. Can someone remove the tubes from this photo?”
