Chris Mattia teaches you the basics of seamlessly removing objects from images with Photoshop so you can quickly clean up your teaching and learning assets and focus your viewers' attention exactly where you want it to be.
- [Instructor] A common thing we need to do,…in preparing images for teaching and learning,…is to remove someone or something from an image.…Now, to demonstrate how far we can take this with Photoshop,…well, let's take this image,…that would have made a great slide background,…if only I had noticed this channel marker here…with this bird on it when I took the picture,…or noticed this other channel marker…or all this other stuff in the background.…Well, let's get rid of all of those things.…Whenever you begin a major image restoration like this,…always start by jumping your image to a new layer.…
So, with the base layer selected,…press cmd + opt + j, or ctrl + alt + j on your keyboard…to jump that image to a new layer,…and then let's rename this new layer Clean.…Now, let's focus on getting rid of the red channel marker…and the bird.…Now, for this image, since we have a fairly consistent look…throughout most of the image,…let's start off with an image repair tool…that we haven't seen yet, and it's called the Patch Tool.…
