Chapter 5. Compositing in Photoshop CS >  Combining Compositing and Retouching

Combining Compositing and Retouching

Do you remember those photos taken at your wedding reception, in which your new brother-in-law managed to intrude on every photo? Do you have a great-looking group shot of everybody in your department at work—including Elmo, who was fired last month? Wouldn’t it be great if you could just paint the offenders out of a photograph with one stroke? Photoshop takes more than one stroke, but it can do the job for you. Try this project to see how easy it is. Lacking a nasty in-law, we’re going to clean up a vacation photo by deleting a poorly posed subject, shown at left in Figure 5.49. Our weapons of choice for this exercise are the Clone Stamp retouching tool and a simple compositing technique. You can follow along using the kids file on the Course website ( www.courseptr.com/downloads ).

Figure 5.49. We can remove the kid at left painlessly.
