I have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting...and I finally got my hands on Photoshop CS5. Why did I want it so badly? Three words...
Content. Aware. Fill!
It's easy to use, super duper cool, and comes in both Photoshop CS5, and Elements 9.
Here's my cute Little Man...when he was still little:)
Now it's an easy fix. Bring the photo into Photoshop, it's a good practice to duplicate the layer so you don't edit on the original (Ctrl+J (Win) / Command+J (Mac))
Now, use the polygon lasso tool
Is it perfect? No...Is it way better than what I used before to remove unwanted objects...You bet!
