Help to remove an item from a picture

Recommended Posts

Hi please forgive me if this has been covered before but I am new to this forum and Paint Net and wondered if I could have some advice if it is at all possible to remove the concrete post, which is down the middle of the photograph and is it easy to do so a novice like myself could do it.

One way to fake it is as follows.

Find similar looking areas in the picture.

Copy and paste selections into new layer, position, merge.

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

stretched, compressed using the selection adjustment nodes and the Move Selected Pixels tool.

When positioned right, deselect and apply feather object.

Some minor brightness adjustment with Brightness / Contrast

can give a smoother blend.


You'll probably need to spend some time working with it to build your skill,

but it's worth knowing how to do this.

If you want to try something that is more automated, try this plugin: Fill Gaps v1.0. You'll have to delete the concrete post first (see linked post where the plugin fills in the space where models' mouth is erased). Do make a backup copy before you start! boltbait.wink.png
