Advanced Techniques for Removing Objects From Images in Photoshop

On this video Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes takes a look at at two advanced techniques for removing objects from images using Adobe Photoshop.

Hughes uses a tool called vanishing point (which we have seen recently on a different video by Hughes) to help restore the look of a road in an image while still maintaining the perspective after removing an object from part of the picture.

On the second part of the Hughes shows how to remove a power line from an image – but not just any simple straight line (which you can remove pretty easily with the spot healing brush) but a curved power line which require the use of the path tool to match the power line just right before we got to the spot healing brush.
