Re: removing paint smear on photo

Some of this damage can be repaired using the clone and heaing brush tools in Photoshop.

What editing program are you using?

Re: removing paint smear on photo

What is the matter Vince. nobody fix this pic for you in the other thread ?

Everyone here has tried to help you learn the How to's but thus far we have seen nothing from you except more pictures that have the same solutions "Clone/Heal/hue_Saturation/color balance, Etc.. the only new thing added in this thread is possibly employing the use of the FFT filter..
As noted before and after being asked more than once we still do not know if you even have any retouching software that you could use to show your progress from all this "Learning"
BTW.. have you read the FAQs? you might want to read the one about "Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?"

Using the above mentioned tools

Fair enough! I guess showing you what was possible with the tools you have available was not help enough.. and the one thing I can not help you with is practicing cubed till you get it the way you want it.. there are no tricks to employ other than practice..

A good starting point for your level might be here: Photoshop Elements: restore old photos

or here: Clone images or areas in an image

Enjoy the learning experience!

Unfortunately there are no Elements' 7 specific books that I know of that address repair techniques, but this one might be worth a look:

The Photoshop Elements 5 Restoration & Retouching Book
(Paperback, 2006)
Author: Matt Kloskowski

- - - - - -

The 'bible' for repair is this book based on Photoshop:
http://product.half.ebay.com/Photosh...71503QQtgZinfo

You might look into an older, less expensive 'used' edition (based on Photoshop 6). Some of the info and methods can be used in Elements.

- - - - -

Try googling: photo repair "photoshop elements"

Some of these tutorials look promising.

- - - - -

Fair warning: It will take practice to learn photo repair skills. Over time you will get better at this type of thing, so don't get discouraged if your first few attenpts aren't perfect.

Good luck on your project and learning adventure.
