How to clone out large distractions in Photoshop

Foto-buzzer Emma Brewer asked us about the options for cleaning up a shot with a large distraction in the frame, writes Jon Adams. In this video, Jon and Andrew join forces to discuss whether to crop or clone, and cover the best ways to go about it.

  1. I do like the double act guys – it worked really well. I’ve quite often done this but I have picked up a couple of little extra tips to help me with future cloning. Thank you very much.

  2. Thank you so much. An easy solution and yet I didn’t think of that. I will have a go over the weekend. The presentation style was enjoyable too. Cheers.

  3. I think the clone tool in PS is much better to use than the spot removal in LR. Good tip too on using the layer mask! Slightly unfair on the removed Starling as they do not walk backwards into shot! Excellent duet by our presenters!

  4. great refresher on the layers approach to this, thanks chaps

  5. Another really useful reminder of how to do things. And the presentation worked well with AJ providing user-questions (as such) so that nothing is assumed or missed. Excellent.

  6. Really enjoyed this presentation. All very clearly explained,,,and extremely useful. Good also to be given answers to the questions I would have asked. Thank you!

    • I enjoyed the presentation style. It’s good to have someone ask questions, even the “stupid” ones. Thanks a lot
