It may happen that an unwanted person appears in a photograph and wants to remove it from it.
Next, the appropriate technique to perform this procedure will be mentioned.
It is the case of a photo taken in a public place and sideways someone appears who has nothing to do with the snapshot, it will proceed to remove it.

Suppose that in the next photo you want to remove the person that appears on the right of the image.

It is an ideal tool to remove stains from a person's face or as previously seen to remove traces of an image that has been removed by means of the quick selection tool.

  • First the photograph that you want to modify and duplicate is opened.
  • Second, the corrector brush tool is selected, which will make a sample of the area surrounding the point to be retouched.
