Hi all, I have a favourite photo that I'd like to edit - photoshop something out of it. It's a very special pic - I don't know how to do it.
Can anyone help me?
I'm signing out and will check back later.
Hi there, it's easy, I use open source editing programs (I'm so cheap). The first and most important thing to do is to BACK UP YOUR PHOTO. Keep it in a file that you know you will never lose, maybe on a separate drive. Second thing to do is to make another copy and keep that one as a WORKING COPY. When you open that photo to work on, save it as a different name, like "mytry1, mytry2", etc. This will give you photos to go back on in case you mess up (you can trash these once you have a photo that you want to keep). The programs tell me to use the CLONE TOOL to remove unwanted objects. Just "clone" a section close to the object and "clone" over the object you want to remove. You won't be removing anything, just covering it up. Basically, you will be coping and pasting, say, a back ground of the sky over a fore ground of a building. If the back ground is complicated, you may need to lineup and adjust the "clone" over the object. There are "feathering and blending" options that will get you the results you want. You may want to "play" with different options, but don't worry about messing up, you have your WORKING COPY to fall back on. Hope this helps, good luck and HAVE FUN...
hi again...i have a pic with 3 people in it - i want to remove one of the persons...from what i've read above - the feathering and blending technique may work. The person I want to remove from the photo is a good friend - but it is a terrible shot of them - so.... 'outtahere'. I can't just cut the person out and copy something over. I've tried basic cropping and removed the person...but i don't like how the final photo turns out.
I have another idea since i'm looking for something much more polished than i could do since I've never edited photos in this way - I might just email it to someone I know in the US who does graphic work for a living.
Thanks for the info!
Taking that much out is tough, depending on the background. Do you have Photoshop, Photoshop elements or what? Here's why I ask. I might cut the people I want out and stick it on another background, or substitute the goofy face with a good one from the same batch of shots.
thanks...i downloaded elements on a trial basis - it expired before i really got to figure out what it could do...i should really just buy it and experiment.
The 2 people are posed with a motorcycle (one sitting and the other is leaning) - so I'd want the bike in too. I'd want to remove my friend and his bike completely out of the shot. Ahhh...it looks complicated to me.
Thanks for the comments all...I've decided i'm going to pay someone to fix the photo for me. The pic is just too special to me.

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...
