Removing Unwanted Objects in Your Photos Using Photoshop Elements 15

It has been far too long since I posted my last Photoshop Elements 15 tutorial. During the past month I have spent a lot of time traveling to softball diamonds and soccer fields to watch my two granddaughters compete in their respective sports. So before the next tournament comes up, I want to post at least one.

In this tutorial, I cover the Clone Stamp tool, the Healing Brush, and the Spot Healing Brush. The Clone Stamp has been around forever, and the healing brushes were added some time after that. More recent versions of Elements added Content Aware technology to the healing brushes. In many cases this technology can significantly improve the results. However, I have to admit there are times when I revert back to the traditional Clone Stamp Tool to complete the task.

As usual the written tutorial is provided in PDF format that is easy to download and print. The figure below shows the before image and the initial application of the Clone Stamp for the example used in the tutorial. Click on it to read or download the tutorial.

Until next time…

    • As usual, Bill, I appreciate the feedback. I should be able to correct it today. Thanks a bunch. By the way, I just returned from the US Youth Soccer Far West Regional Championships in Renton WA. Lucy’s team earned spot there by finishing first in their CSL conference. Lucy shares the goal-keeping duties with another teammate. Her team got eliminated in the quarter finals. They lost 2-1 with the game decided by penalty kicks after two OTs. The other goalie was in at the time. That was the only game that the team had given up a goal all week. Lucy gave up no goals all week. She and her Beach Academy team can be very proud.
