Wonderful close-up Shalu!! With all that magnification, you managed to get a close-up with very good sharpness! Great work!

Thank you very much, recrisp! The video links to an episode about content aware stretching, not removing stuff :lol:



I'm sorry about that, I admit to not watching it, I 'assumed' that it was about showing how it's all done.

Anyway, this is the same guy, and he does this in 2017, so it's a few years old, but it's similar to that now, I use Photoshop CC 2019.
You need to make a Selection first, what you want removed...

Use the method he mentions by going to;

EDIT/Content-Aware Fill

Just press O.K. and it'll do it for you on a New Layer.

In earlier Photoshops this might not be there, or, it may look slightly different, but it will still be making a selection, Edit, then Fill with Content-Aware.

If this is confusing, let me know, I can take snapshots of how to do it if you need me to, I sure don't mind.
(I'd need to know what version Photoshop that you use though)

Cloning can do it too, but that is the 'old way' to get things done.

The NEW video of him doing it. If this is not to your liking, just try one of the many others that are on the side on the right-hand side, there are many to choose from.
