If you're taking a portrait, shouldn't everybody be facing the camera? If so, what would they remove? Your stomach? I think it would look really strange to see somebody with no midsection. Regardless, Photoshop doesn't work that way. Everybody believes that doctoring somebody out of a photo is a few clicks. Wrong. There must be data to work with first. How can you remove a person from a photo when you don't know what is behind the person? Dust marks and skin blemishes are easy, they are sm

My boyfriend can do that kind of stuff without a LOT of hard work. He does graphic desing for a living and is an expert in photoshop. Ive seen him do an amazing job for a picture he needed to change for a postcard. He photoshopped out cars and light posts that were in the way. It took him about an hour, I believe. It was pretty awesome, IMO. So, an expert wouldn't have too much of an issue with fixing up a picture.

Depends on your resources. If you have two pictures, such as one of your backrop and one of your subject on the backdrop, then swapping parts of one picture for another is trivial.

#23. When he did the postcard, he only had the one picture. There was no substitution from another picture. There was also another picture where he had to actually remove two large vehicles from a podium in front of a casino. I guess it all just depends on your level of expertise. I know you can't simply click on a person and remove them. Ive seen him work. He's just absolutely excellent at what he does. In a portrait studio, Id assume it would be even easier because you can clone the

Yeah, of course a portrait studio would have a very easy time obtaining a "clean" image to substitute data from. But unless the "victim" was standing to the side, the need for any Photoshop work is minimal. My point stands though. It is impossible to remove something from a photo without something to replace it. The best source is a clean image to work from, but that is usually not available. Instead, the area needs to be replaced "by hand" in a way, using a comb
