Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Tourist removal in Photoshop, part of Photo Tools Weekly (2015).
- Hi, this is Jan Kabili for Photo Tools Weekly.…This week I want to show you a technique…for removing moving objects from photos in Photoshop.…The street name for this technique is "tourist removal"…because a typical situation in which it comes in handy…is when you're photographing a statue or a monument…or some other tourist destination, and inevitably…lots of people or tourists keep wandering through the scene…so you can't get a clear shot.…But this technique can work in other situations too,…when you have moving objects, like intruding birds or cars.…
It all starts when you're out shooting…and you realize you're just not going to be able…to shoot around the intrusions.…So instead, put your camera on a tripod, a wall,…or some other base that will keep it from moving,…and capture multiple shots of the same scene…one after the other, letting the people…or other intrusions move through the scene.…For example, here you can see…I was photographing in New York City…and this fellow was skating,…and then these birds came in at the top right.…
