    Deleting large objects

    Treeline

      Hi All,

           Hey I was wondering what the best method is for removing large objects from a background image and have the void filled with the surrounding colors and textures?

       

      I have a photo with an old CRT TV hanging from the ceiling that I'd like to delete.

       

      Thanks for your help and experience.

          Quite often selecting the object, expanding the selection to leave a little space around it, then doing Edit - Fill - Content Aware can be very effective.

            Hi Noel,

                            Thanks for the reply. That tip is interesting and I’ll bet would work well with an even colored background. Here’s the rub when I tried it with my photo. I have an old CRT TV that hangs in the ceiling in the corner of a conference room. The TV has been removed and I’d like to update the photo, but because it’s near a corner, there are shadows and shading that causes a very uneven fill.  (getting into and setting up the room for a new photo is always a challenge so I thought I’d try Photoshop magic first).

              Can you post that image or a part of it here?  Perhaps someone will be able to suggest somewhat more manual means to retouch the monitor out of there.
