    How do I delete get rid of this person in this picture?

    Level 7
      Here is the link to my image...

      http://www.verticalterrain.com/images/center_banner2.jpg

      I cut the snowboarder in the middle out and moved him over the far right so
      he is slightly off the photo which is how I want it. Now I want the
      snowboarder in the center to be completley erased and have nothing there but
      the background behind him which would just be blue sky and snow. I am not
      sure how I go about doing this but if someone could walk me through it boy
      would I sure appreciate it. Not sure if there is a technical term for what
      I'm trying to do or not?

      Thanks,

          You have to use "Clone" tool (which is called "Rubber Stamp" in FW). Pick
          the original location in, say, snow area, then clone the snow over his
          legs with appropriate brush size. Then pick the original location in sky
          area near his head (somewhere to the right and above the head) and clone
          the sky over his head. When you gather some experience with it, I'm sure
          you'll be able to make the result rather realistic.

            Thanks for the prompt and helptful response! Do you think I'd be better off
            doing this in Photoshop or is fireworks perfectly capable to?

              PS "Healing brush" may be easier to use on some areas of this image, but I
              think that FW tools are sufficient. At least I was able to deal with more
              tricky images long before Healing brush was introduced. Obviously, you
              can't do the job with a single stroke of the Stamp (the image will show
              too obvious repetitions), but if you clone a bit from here, then add a bit
              from there and so on, you'll be able to do what you need.

                Ilya,

                Here is the progress I've made so far on the image,
                http://verticalterrain.com/Templates/index2.dwt

                Doesn't look to bad huh?

                I used to rubbet stamp and the blur and smudge tools alot but I think with
                just a little more work you'll never be able to tell!

                -Chris
