layers to remove splotch


Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone! New to the board and was just reading the post about layers. I have a picture that seems to have had a bug on the lense when taking it. I'd like to remove it and using layers(which I'm about to learn i hope) seems like the way to do it.

Will making a hole in one layer and covering it with another work? Also is there any easier way I may have missed?

Thanks a bunch in advance :D

That could work, especially if you wanted the hole to be filled with something particular.

If you simply want to cover up the splotch, you probably want to use the "Clone Stamp" tool. In Paint .NET, Press F1 (or go to "Help Topics" in the Help menu) and then find the "Clone Stamp" link on the left side of the help file. Click this link and read how to use Clone Stamp. In the Clone Stamp help page, look at the bottom example image...this is sort of what you probably want to do.

Don't be afraid to ask any questions here.

Hey SearedIce!

Thanks, that looks like exactly what I want to do. Now, here is when you find out what I really don't know :D

Ichose the pencil, held down ctrl and drew a circle around the area I want to copy. then went and presed clone stamp and tried to move the corcled area. Nothing happens :( Any chance you have time to explain what exactly to do next?

Every time I start to think I sort of know what I'm doing something like this pulls me right back :lol:

Thanks again,
