How To Remove Shadows From Photos

Hobbies : Photography

If you have shadows or other unwanted items in photos, then the good news is that with a little time and patience you can do something about it.

One of the most powerful tools is something called a clone brush in software like Photoshop.

The way it works is to copy one area of a picture to another. It works best where there are long reaches of similar colour.

For instance, if there is a field in the bottom half of your picture but with an ugly bench in you might want to remove the bench.

This is easily done by 'cloning' the uniform field grass and painting over.

Select the clone brush, Alt click on the area of the picture you want to copy from, then paint over the unsightly area.

You might want to use a little soft filtering to smooth over any obvious transitions.
