By using adobe Photoshop, there are many ways to remove images within a photo. This tutorial is for absolute beginners who are quite new to adobe Photoshop and its wonders. Editing images is what adobe Photoshop software is used to do and we’ll try to learn the best method to remove images inside a photo. By using this method, edges do not look jagged.
First of all, you have to locate the part within the photo that you want to remove or eliminate. Set foreground color to black and background color to white. Now use the brush tool, set master diameter at 10 px and hardness at 0%. What you have to do next is to unlock layer and add a layer mask on the picture going to be edited.
Be careful while using brush tool to outline parts of images. While outlining straight parts, hold down shift key to acquire natural smooth straight line. Also note that if you are trying to outline very small bits of images, you can change diameter of brush tool to smaller sizes less than 10 px.
After you have finished with outlining, hold down ALT key and click on the layer mask at the same time. Now choose the magic wand application, check Contiguous and uncheck Anti-alias. Now click on the region which you don’t want within your photo.
Now go to toolbar –> Select–> Modify–> Expand and set it to 5 px. Now change the background color to black and press delete key. There might still be something on the edges of the image which you don’t want within the photo. To remove them, you need to go back and use 5 px brush tool to outline those very small areas.
We live in a digital age. After 2000, most of the things have gone digital. Like most of the things, photography has become digital and Adobe Photoshop is the greatest software ever to manipulate digital images. Anybody can easily learn to use adobe Photoshop to produce beautiful looking digital images like a professional photographer.
In the past, photography was considered a difficult art and not everyone was capable of doing photography to produce professional looking photos. Earlier a photographer needed to learn about film speed, exposure value, shutter speeds, focal length etc. He also needed to take care of the quality of lighting suitable for a particular environment. Photo printing was another complex affair. Photos were printed using dangerous and toxic chemicals in dark room and were hung to dry.
These days you just need a digital camera and you can start taking pictures with practically unlimited memory. You can take as many pictures as you want without worrying about the number of photos you can take or the quality of lighting while taking pictures. After taking pictures, you can simply print the photos on a photo-paper using any simple and inexpensive color printer.
Professional photographers these days use Adobe Photoshop to enhance photos. Adobe Photoshop is a software program to enhance quality of images and make them look more beautiful. Adobe Photoshop is currently the most popular imaging software world-wide. The reason of its great popularity is that Adobe Photoshop contains all the necessary and powerful tools to make a picture look like one taken by a professional under best lighting conditions possible.

You must have encountered images with different file extensions like .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp, .png, .gif etc. JPG and JPEG images are most commonly encountered because most digital cameras and scanners use this file format for images. For a person who hasn’t been much into graphic design, these file formats may not be very important or he/she may not be aware of differences between working with these file formats. One difference you may have noticed is image size. JPG and JPEG images take least disk space. Image sizes indicate quality of images and images who cover larger disk space should be of higher quality (not always because there might be redundant data because of poor image processing).
Adobe Photoshop uses its own file format called PSD. You can also call it native file format of Adobe Photoshop. PSD files keep detailed data and intelligence information of images. PSD files take largest disk space but allow easily manipulation of high quality images. But, PSD files are not meant to be distributed to general public as it can’t be read without access to Adobe Photoshop program. Only Adobe Photoshop users and graphic designer or professionals would be able to use PSD file formats. When distributing images to other people, it must be converted into one of the proper formats like JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP etc. But, you must always keep a copy of project saved into PSD format even if the project is completed as you may have to work on it again if such a necessity arises.
Some more information about other graphic file formats. JPEG image formats are most popular. Remember jpeg is a lossy format. It discards some information which doesn’t effect viewing experience thus decreasing image size but rendering it useless for computer based image processing.
BMP are image file formats used by lots of Microsoft Windows programs. They are uncompressed and so have large file sizes.
GIF and PNG are based on lossless compression which means these files don’t lose quality because of compression and reduced file sizes. These files are mostly used for graphics on web pages. GIF uses just 256 colors but can produce cartoon like animation by storing a series of images in a small size file.
TIFF is an older file format not used much any more as we have much better file formats now.
