How to Clean Up Backgrounds in Photoshop

Unfortunately the world doesn’t pause for the perfect shot. Sometimes you’ve got the sunset in your sights and just as the elusive green flash flashes, a seagull or seven decides now’s the time cruise past. What’s a photographer to do? The shot itself is still excellent, but there’s that seagull/car/extraneous family member drawing the eye away from the subject.

Phlearn has the solution. Using the brush tool or clone stamp tool in Photoshop, Aaron Nace will show you how to get rid of that unsightly object that has the nerve to ruin a really great shot. 

This video tutorial covers:

  • Setting goals for your photograph
  • When to use the brush tool vs clone stamp
  • How to make a selection
