Photoshop is one of the most complete and professional photo editing and retouching programs that we can find. With it we will be able to do, literally, what we want. The limit is set by our imagination. And while some spend their time mastering the editing and creation of authentic works of art, the most common is wanting to improve and retouch our personal photos. And, in this way, eliminate all that unwanted element that appears in them, such as an ex.
Among the many functions and tools that Photoshop offers us, the best known are those that serve to eliminate unwanted elements from photos and fill the gap using AI so that it is not noticed that there was an element there before. We can do it with objects, signs, lamp posts, cars, animals and, of course, people.
Next, we are going to see the possibilities that Photoshop offers us for this work.
Remove unwanted people from photos
Among the tools that Photoshop offers us by default, one of the best known and used for this task is the cloning stamp. Thanks to it we will be able to overwrite any part of the photo and change its content for other content that exists in another part of the photo. This is the system that has been used the most over time for this purpose, although the truth is that it is the most complicated method and the one that takes the longest. In addition, its main objective is to clone specific objects, not paint over them, so if we are not careful or the photo is complex, the result may not be ideal.
And this does not lead to the second tool that we can use for this purpose: the fill function. This function makes use of Artificial Intelligence to allow us to eliminate a selected part of the photo (which we can select with the smart selection, with the magic wand of Photoshop or with the method we want) and fill the gap according to the content of the rest of the photo. the picture.
Thanks to its AI, the result we obtain is perfect.
Use Photoshop Elements
If Adobe Photoshop is too big for us, and is out of our budget, we can turn to another tool that will allow us to do the same, but in a much simpler and faster way: use Photoshop Elements .
This program is a reduced version of the great photo editor that, instead of giving us a blank canvas to do whatever we want, what it does is provide us with a series of quick actions. And among them is the ” Object Removal ” tool. This is what gives us the ability to remove unwanted elements from photos.
We simply have to load a photo into the program, select this option and follow the steps indicated by Elements to make any element of the photo disappear, as if by magic. The program automatically takes care of everything else so that it automatically fills in, and intelligently, the blank space according to the content of the photo.
