How to isolate the background of an image?

Recommended Posts

I know how to get rid of the background, but that isn't what I want. I want to just have the background. For example, let's say you have an album cover, with a blue somewhat blurred background, but the artist's logo or name etc on top of the background. Is there a way that you can get rid of the logo or name and have JUST the background? Is it even possible? Obviously I don't want empty transparent holes in the image either.

If you're going to cut bits out of a single layered image you're going to end up with holes. That's a fact of life.

There are a few techniques to filling up those holes. Doing it to a high standard (i.e. optically difficult to detect) is going to become more difficult as the background gets more complex. Often it's easier just to recreate the artwork from scratch.

Yes it matters. The album cover example was (I'm assuming by the language used) hypothetical.

Ripping off other peoples artwork cannot be condoned and is illegal.
