Welcome back to Tutorial Tuesday where every week, we bring you a brand new photography tutorial. This week we're talking about how to remove anything from a photograph using photoshop.
The first tool that we focus on in the video is the spot healing brush. This allows us to remove small things from the frame (in this case, fence posts). It's perfect for taking out dust spots in the sky, blemishes on the face or other small things. It also generally works best with a background that is not too complex.
It's an extremely quick and easy way to remove these elements and a powerful tool for a quick cleanup.
The next tool we look at in the video is Content Aware Fill. Using the Lasso tool, we can make a selection and then use Content Aware Fill to fill in that selection using information that we provide to Photoshop.
This is an extremely powerful tool and let's you accurately remove large objects, even if there is a complex background behind them.
The Patch Tool is a great way to quickly remove something from your photo and replace it with an area of your choice. Photoshop is then able to blend in your selection and if you've taken the right area, it can be seamless.
When you need to get in and manually remove something, the clone stamp tool allows you extremely precise control. It can take a little longer but the results are great.
You can watch our video above to get a full explanation and step by step guide on each tool and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you don't miss out on a new tutorial every Tuesday.
