      The Campus is the perfect place to learn more about photo editing, various techniques, or PSP in general.

      This challenge will give you an opportunity to practice some of those techniques or use some tools.

      This month’s Tut/Tech Challenge is to remove an element or a person from a photo.

      HERE is a tutorial to get rid of someone on the photo. If you want more advanced tools and techniques, there is also the Master Class Get rid of it.

      For this challenge, show us the before and after photos. They could be your photos (it is always best) or stock photos (say so if that is what you use). Some results might improve the photos, some might become funny (if an important element of the photo is missing). Let’s have fun while practicing.

        I stood on the porch and pitched daffodil bulbs throughout the yard … looks pretty cool when everything is still winter brown but the daffodils are blooming.  (After blooming I just mow over them.)

        I had to remove blades of grass to tube the daffodils; then I made a group using the tube.

          Mine was not much of a challenge.  I used scratch remover and just a bit with the clone.    The red X shows what was removed.  Somehow the site switched my names.  The one with the red X is suppose to be Number 1 and the photo where I removed the line and fixed the crack in the cement foundation should be Number 2

            Last year on a road trip through Nova Scotia, we arrived just after a group of tour buses. There was no way to get a clean photo of the lighthouse. As you can see, the original photo was busy with people. The photo was also under exposed due to the strong back light and finally it wasn’t straight. Fortunately all these problems were repairable using Paintshop Pro.

            Thanks to tips and tutorials from Corel and Scrapbook Campus, my less than ideal images still make it into my slideshows.

                Job well done everyone!

                This was a challenge that was most definitely challenging!  Loved it Cassel, thank you.  Tools used were the scratch remover and the clone brush.  Photo was one taken by myself from the back deck of a house that I was looking after for friends.  The beach is called The Oaks and is about 20 minutes drive from the city of Bundaberg.  Thanks for takin a peek.

                  Annie, I noticed you modification notes. From one OCD person to another, you crack me up. <3 Aside from that, you did a wonderful job on the pic.

                  Art, it was a pretty pic to begin with, but your adjustments made it even better.

                  Wanda Sue, the forum always posts the pictures in reverse order of how you load them. You did a really nice job.

                  Sharon, what beautiful flowers. They are perfect for tubing!

                    I find that I most frequently remove power lines from photos. I usually do that with the clone tool. I’m not very good at extracting people yet. I definitely need lots more practice! I found this photo I made in the backyard overlooking the neighbor’s hay field. The red clover were blooming and I thought they were so pretty. I never used the photo for anything because it had the power lines. Now I can use it!

                        You all have done great jobs with this challenge!  Very neat to see such practical applications, too!!!

                          Helen, I love that hat! Everyone’s done a fantastic job. I found another photo that I could practice on. It’s not a very good photo, but it served the purpose. I used the painting option to extract the elements. I’m still unsure what to do with the areas among the palm fronds. Any and all suggestions are appreciated!

                            @Sharon, The larger the image, the larger the details that you could select. It looks like you did a great job from what I see.

                              Thanks Carole.  I do my tubing from my original photos, but since they are so large, I reduce the size of the photo before posting online.  Learned the hard way that it is much better to have a large tube and reduce it to the size that is needed instead of having a small tube and needing it larger.
