How to remove a person/image from an image in Photoshop
You set your camera to the perfect angle, you have the lighting just right, everything is ready for you to take your perfect photo. Three, two, one, “snap”. At the very moment you take your photo, however, a pedestrian walks directly into the center of the frame. Great. Your picture is ruined.
Don’t despair! Thanks to Photoshop, you can erase that pesky pedestrian and get the perfect picture you imagined!
Here is my original photo with a pedestrian walking right smack in the middle of the picture:
Select the “lasso” tool and trace the outline of the image or person you want to remove from the picture.
Next, click the “spot healing brush tool” and be sure to select “content aware” in the tool menu box.
Now take your curser and draw over your selected portion. You will see the image/person be covered in a gray translucent color. When you let go of the mouse, the gray translucent color will disappear and so will the image/person you wanted to remove. It will look like this:
To clean up the blurry portions of the image, reduce the brush size and go over the blurry portions little by little until you are happy with the finished product! Here is what the final version of my image looks like:
Perfect! No pesky pedestrian in sight!
