Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Removing elements with the Patch tool, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In this movie we will be working on the file beau.tif and we will be learning more about how to use the Patch Tool.…Go ahead and double click that file and open it up in Photoshop,…after go to full screen view mode Command + Plus to zoom in a little bit.…Here we have this nice portrait of this photographer named Beau and what I want to do…with this image, is I want to remove this terracotta tile.…I'm going to zoom in even further, on the Mac that's Command + Plus, on PC that Ctrl + Plus.…I want to zoom in on this piece of terracotta here.…I'm going to patch this.…
So I want to copy my background layer.…I will click and drag that to the new layer icon and choose Retouch.…Next, I will select the Patch Tool in the Toolbox or I can always press J and then Shift + J to toggle…through those different tools there until I get to the Patch Tool and I'm going…to make a selection of this particular piece of terracotta.…Now there is a problem with my selection, which I want to show you.…I'm going to go ahead and choose Source in my Options Bar for my Patch option there…
