Hi,

 

I konw there is a terrific new feature in PS CC (I have used it before!) but I just can't find any explanation on how to to do it!

 

The question is how do you remove, from an imge, a power line, or a telephone line by symply clicking on both ends of those lines in order to remove them?

 

Thanks

 

Serge

    btyan o'neil hughes, an exec with ADOBE has a website and it contains the trick to which you refer. go to the site and search for something like power cable, or wires, etc.

     

    I am sure I saw it earlier this year.

    I don't know the Brian Hughes tutorial, but Russell Brown has one in which suggests tracing the power line with the Pen tool, and stroking the resulting pather with the healing brush.  But's not what the OP (Serge) asked. and clever as the Russell Brown method is, I suspect using the Shift key together with the healing brush will just about always be quicker, unkess the power lines are so curved as to require multiple stabs with the shift key to follow the curve.

    yea, Sergec, but that won't quite work if the line is curved. The technique is still available, as hughes described, it in CS5, CS6, and CSCC.

    Curved lines are not a problem.  You just to use more points with the Shift key.

     

    A situation where Russell Browns pen tool, and stroking the path with the healing brush would work well, is when you have several power lines with the ame curve, because you could nudge the same path to each power line in turn.   The problem with that, and it applies to any method, is that when the lines are close to each other, the Healing brush tends to use an adjacent line in the fix. :-(

    Try Snap Heal Pro. It's cheap.

    Thanks a bunch, Richard.  For some stuff, e.g. poles, wires, etc, Snap Heal Pro works like magic.
