    So I recently managed to get my hands on some Photoshop goodness , and it's an amazing tool...when in the hands of the right person.

    I'm having trouble in trying to remove some objects of this particular image- it has lots of things behind the persons head , and that big baby holding thing. whatever that's called :p

    Can anyone give guidance on what to do ?

    Here's what I'd do. Using the polygonal lasso tool ...

    [​IMG]

    I'd select the area behind her head tight to the hair but leaving plenty of room around objects (remote/pacifier). I'd then feather the selection (select>modify>feather) by 1 pixel just to soften the hair edge ... hair can be tricky.

    Then I'd use the clone stamp with a soft brush to pick up adjacent tones of the upholstery to "erase" the items within the selection.

    As for the baby carrier (that's what they call those things) I'd just crop it out. That much couch really isn't important to the image.

    My $.02 ... keep the change ;)

    Yeah, I think so. But as the post above says, I could easily crop out the sofa.

    Another thing , I went and took lots of pictures with my JVC Camcorder (actually a 0.2MP) and then realised that everything was grainy.

    Anything that can be done?

    edit: for anyone reading, the mixer brush tool/ camera raw filter work great

    I'm back :p

    Any idea how (or if it's possible) to move the piece of jewelry on the head here? Just want to try and centre it/ move it slightly to the right.

    I took a Photoshop class in high school only to learn I have no artistic talent.

    I don't think I do either. It's still a good tool for photo edits (slimming, removing unwanted objects/people/marks etc)

    Here is a good summary of what you can do: Adobe Photoshop * Adjusting pixel selections

    I would personally try to manually trace with the pen tool and then once its selected pretty close to perfect I would use Select - Refine Edge to tweak to perfection.

    If you would like to see some of the artwork I have done I have included some examples in one of my Flickr sets here. I have a folio website, but unfortunately I haven't worked in a while and so I was unable to renew the domain.

    The best thing is that I actually edited that (added in the background) in Photoshop :p
