Deleting photobombers with Photoshop: Deke's Techniques

Delete photobombers with Photoshop

Explore Deke’s Techniques at lynda.com.

You’ve got a great location, a great group of friends, a great camera. All the makings of a great shot, right? But you get the file off the camera and onto your computer and lo and behold: a photobomber appears. Some person detracting from the main event, intentionally or not. Happily, with the tools in Adobe Photoshop, you can remove unwanted guests or any other undesired elements from your photographs. You don’t even need the latest version of Photoshop. In fact, in this week’s episode of Deke’s Techniques, Deke takes you through the old-school method for removing a photobomber from an otherwise fantastic photo. These are results you’re not going to get with Content-Aware Fill, the Patch tool, or even the brand-new Content-Aware Move tool. No, you have to go back to the basics. We’re talking Photoshop version 3, circa 1994 basics. Watch today’s free video to learn how.

Deke will be back next week with another technique for stitching 19 different photographs into a gorgeous panorama. Stay tuned.
