Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Cleaning up the details, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
Now that we have roughed in the new background in our composite photograph…what I want to do next is start to take a look at how we can clean up some of the small details.…In order to do that we will be creating two different layers and we will be…doing a little bit of healing and also some cloning to work on the background.…All right, well let's start off with some healing.…Let's go and create a new layer and let's do that by way of a shortcut, press…Shift+Command+N on a Mac or Shift+Ctrl+N on Windows and we will name this new…layer clean up, then click Ok.…
Next, press the J key in order to select the Spot Healing brush.…And with the Spot Healing brush what we want to do is choose the options for…Content-Aware and then Sample All Layers.…By using Sample All Layers it will allow us to perform all of our clean up…work on this layer here.…Next what you want to do is go ahead and press the spacebar key to move around…your image and just start to paint over some of these areas where you are…seeing repeating patterns.…
