Please advise: removing word ballons from comic art

Recommended Posts

You could use GIMP and the Resynthesizer/Heal Selection plugin.

Or, you could set your primary color's alpha - transparency to ~35 and go to the Clone Stamp tool (keyboard shortcut 'L') and Ctrl-Click somewhere that is not a speech bubble. Then, proceed to reclick on the speech bubble.

Mostly copy and paste into new layer, position, merge.

To make things match up, the pasted/selected bits can be rotated,

stretched, compressed using the selection adjustment nodes.

When positioned right, deselect and apply feather object.

Some minor brightness adjustment with Brightness / Contrast

can give a smoother blend.
