Many of the photos I shoot have one thing in common. Objects in the photo that I’d rather not have in the photo. Telephone poles, people, pets, time and date stamps, part of a window or wall, and all those objects that just seem to appear but we don’t notice until we’ve taken the shot and then go to share the photo.
Here’s a quick and easy way to get rid of unwanted objects in photos. It’s called InPaint. Yes, I agree that the name is completely wrong for what InPaint does. It has nothing to do with paint and everything to do with erasing unwanted objects and filling in the background.
Here’s a perfect example.
Select the object you want to remove and InPaint figures out what should go in its place. The same technique can be used to remove scratches, lines, cuts, bend or fold marks from old photos.
InPaint does a good job repairing photos, removing watermarks, deleting people from a photo, erasing poles and power lines, and it does facial retouching.
Got wrinkles and pimples in a photo? Erase them completely with InPaint’s erase and fill brush.
You can do the same kind of object removal in Photoshop CC or Photoshop Elements, but InPaint is faster and far easier to use. Select what you want to remove. Adjust the tool settings and click. Done. And, it’s try before you buy.
