took this photo of me and blazr988 this am and just was not happy with it. we were in a hurry to get home (12 hour night shift before a morning hunt will do that to you). looking into the sun was tough enough but when i saw the blade of grass in the pic i was tweaked. i don't know much about photoshop but i used the paint program to cut and paste pieces over the grass and it worked out pretty well i think. i have used it to remove tongues that were hanging out and to remove bloody spots in pics but this was the biggest thing i have tried. i must say, it would have been a whole lot easier if the camerman would have just paid attention !!!! rob ain't as fussy about pics as i am. he says if i shot my gun as much as i shot my cameras i would not have missed the first time !!! there is always a critic ::ke: ::ke:

Great job, Feral One! Did you use the clone stamp or the healing tool?

that is greek to me rip, i used the paint program that came with the computer. i wish i was sharp enough to know how to use a real paint shop for settling down some of those blown highlights i tend to have in my pictures. i just cut and paste stuff that matches and put it over what i want to cover and i use the eyedropper thing to pick up matching colors so i can spraypaint over rough edges. i used the same thing to take a big bullet hole out of my dads deer (so my mom could look at it) and i used it to put a whole bunch of holes in blazr988's deer. it looked like he shot it 15 times !!!:rofl: :rofl: i guess there is a bad and a good side to it.

Sorry about that Feral One... You do REALLY good using that technique!

There are a couple of "tools" in Photoshop (Elements, CS, etc.) called the "Clone stamp" and the "Spot Healing Brush". You select the size & options of the clone stamp & pick a place to get from & go to. Then it makes the same relative changes whereever you stamp - great for dust spots, powerlines, etc. The healing brush is similar, except that it samples the adjacent area to magically "fix" whatever you want to go away.

From an avid photoshopper, nicely done. You can't even tell you messed with it other than the area 1/4" to the (his) left of his shoulder where you can tell what part you cloned. But hey, that's getting nit-picky.

Also, there ain't a photo editor in the world that can take care of blown highlights. If the highlights are blown in the photo, they stay blown.
