Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Removing small details, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
In order to remove some of these other larger elements, what I want to do is I…want to use the Patch tool.…Now, the Patch tool, you actually have to work on a layer where you have all the content.…So, we need to merge all of these layers together.…To do that, we can use a shortcut.…On a Mac you press Shift+Option+Command+E; on Windows Shift+Alt+Ctrl+E. Go ahead…and name this one "clean up," and then what I'm going to do is actually flatten…these layers together, because I don't need the underlying layers anymore.…
So I'll click in this top layer, hold down the Shift key, then click in the…bottom layer of my adjustments that I've made, and then press Command+E on a…Mac, Ctrl+E on Windows.…And essentially, what I've done is just flattened those together, so I now have…all of my cleanup on one layer.…All right, next step: zoom in a little bit by pressing Command+Plus or Ctrl+Plus,…and what we can do here is get creative with how we can remove this content.…For example, we can use this Patch tool. What we can do with the Patch tool…
