Join Julieanne Kost for an in-depth discussion in this video Removing elements, part of The Art of Photoshop Compositing.
…So now that I've narrowed in on my composition,…I want to remove any distracting elements in the files.…And I really want to show you two different ways…that you can edit, based on whether or not…you're working on a smart object that's pixel based,…or a smart object that originated as a RAW file.…So I'm going to hide my Properties panel, here, so we can see more of my layers.…And, in fact, I'm actually going to make these a little…bit smaller because of the resolution that I'm recording it.…So I'll go to Panel Options, and I'm just going to decrease the Thumbnail Size.…
We can see a few more of our layers at one time.…Now, I find that this area right here…on the metal layer is actually quite distracting.…It's just a little bit too obvious.…But if I select, for example, my Healing Brush or…maybe the Patch Tool and then click on the metal layer.…You'll notice that Photoshop gives me the international…symbol for, it can't actually edit this layer.…And that's because it's a smart object and I'm trying to do pixel based editing.…
