I am not proficient with photo shop. Would someone be willing to clone out the persons head in this picture? The 2nd from right - looks like they are "photobombing" the picture. The one between the shoulders.


Thanks in advance.

Randy

We always talk glibly about "cloning something out". But of course that's not really what we're doing. What we're actually doing is "cloning something else in". In this case, curtains.

The most important thing to remember is NOT to try to be precise with the clone tool. Just clone merrily, and partially obscure the other people as well. The precision happens in the masking, not the cloning.

I don't see curtains behind the unwanted head myself. But I do know that I would take out the tree too, rather than try to build a trunk etc for it. As Damo said, it's easier doing the cloning than doing the masking to make it tidy.Personally my approach is to simply paint the mask around the edges carefully using a simple round brush. I don't have a Wacom, but I do use an old pen tablet made by Trust. This allows me to draw quite accurately. It would certainly be the simplest method for me. I have tried several different methods for auto producing this type of mask, and all of them have left me going in with a brush to get things perfect, since otherwise I always seem to end up with a halo in one direction or the other that needs sorting anyway.

If someone were willing to do it for you, how would they get (and return) the full res image?

That was the head I fist saw too, and would remove it since it would be quite easy. But the OP was asking about a different head that A) would be more of a PITA to do perfectly and B) WTF? Why would someone photobomb a shot like that and honestly (and with all due respect) - how did the photographer not notice and take another shot after politely asking that person to f-off.

This was sent to me by my aunt asking to have herself removed from the photo. She is the one to the right side of the photo with the white curtains behind her.

I thought someone could "Save" the photo, the remove her head, the post back here.

Thanks,
Randy

This is really fundamental stuff. Somebody who is committed enough to photography as you are should have these basic skills. I urge you to give it a try yourself.

I would also consider cropping it to hide the distracting ceiling elements and door closer etc....

I do not have photoshop - never have - don't really need it. Just because someone doesn't have photoshop doesn't mean they are not committed to photography. I learned photography back when you had to know how to use your camera settings to make a photograph, not totally manipulate a raw file to make a photograph. These are the basic skills I use for my photography - I urge you to give it a try yourself.


You know, if you don't want to help or are not interested in a particular post, you can keep scrolling. You don't have to add your 2 cents worth of condescension.


Thanks anyway,
Randy

Chrisa,
Thanks so much. That is the only image I had. I sent the one you fixed to my aunt and she replied "that is fabulous!"

Again, thank you!

That's one perspective, but only one.

Some excellent shooters do their own post just like in days of yore some were found in the darkroom. Other excellent photographers would rather shoot than process and work with others as needed.

A friend who is thrice (at least!) the photographer I am dislikes "fiddling about with pixels" but her work SOC is so good she rarely needs me to fix something. She would take your comment as an example of ignorant mansplaining.

We all benefit from learning that our own approach, fine as it may be for us, does not set the standard for all. I urge you to give that learning a try for yourself.
