Remove people easily
Get rid of all the people who annoy you! OK, not literally. I came across a great video posted on YouTube a couple of days ago on how to remove people from photographs. The other week I posted a photo of the day of The Louvre which had no people in it. Now, if any of you have ever been there you will know that it's always full of people. So, how do you remove people from your photographs, especially when you are in popular tourist locations?
This video explains how to do that
Jesús Ramirez of the Photoshop Training Channel will walk you through how to use median stacking in Photoshop to remove all those annoying people, and other moving objects from your photographs. This techniques uses multiple images. In an ideal world you should use your tripod for this, but his example is taken with a handheld smartphone. The stack mode, as the name suggests, places all the shots you take in a stack. Then, it analyses your images to see what is consistent through all of them and what is not. And like magic, it removes everything that has changed position. As you will see from the video, you might have to tweak the image here and there to remove people completely. But you are going to save yourself hours of work by using this technique. The results seem really impressive and I think I'll give it a try this weekend, so why don't you do it too?
