In this simple tutorial, we’ll learn how to remove a person from a picture as shown below. This is the before and after image.
- Adobe Photoshop CS
- Woman picture
Open the woman picture.
Press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+N to create a new layer and select the wall facing towards us by using either the Polygonal Lasso or Pen Tool.
Remove the woman by using the Clone Stamp Tool. You should also save the selection by pressing Select > Save Selection because we will need it later.
Notice how the patterns emerge again. To remove this, choose the Patch Tool and duplicate the cloned layer.
Your layers should look something like this:
Keep the following settings for your Patch Tool:
Select an irregular section on the patterned area and drag it on the good area as shown below.
Repeat these steps until the entire pattern is removed.
Now, load the saved selection by clicking on Select > Load Selection and press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert it. Remove the lady’s hand, knee and some of her feet by using the Clone Stamp Tool.
Now, choose Filter > Vanishing Point, select the Create Plane Tool by pressing C and create a grid like this:
Select the Stamp Tool by pressing S and remove the lady’s feet. Also, keep the brush’s opacity low so that it will blend better.
All we have to do now is remove the little imperfections. See how the wall’s corner looks fake.
We’ll correct this by using the Clone Stamp Tool. Select this tool and then select a source point like shown. Now, click on the corner’s base and then Shift-click on the upper corner.
You can do some more cloning according to your liking as I did to achieve the result below.
And we’re done!
