Removing a Logo, or anything for that matter

Hey there,

I have been learning photoshop for a couple of months now but have always wondered how to remove something seamlessly from a picture. In this photo I have I would like to remove the "Gizelle" logo on her shirt so it just looks like a plain pink shirt. I was looking for something that worked better than the clone tool.
I also tried the slice tool but got a very confused by the lines and numbers... I also couldn't get rid of them once I put them on there. Any tips would be much appreciated and hopefully helpful to others wondering the same thing.

Here's my try at it. I used some clone stamp, sampling different areas of the picture, some healing brush and some reconstruction.

Re: Removing a Logo, or anything for that matter

One very effective way would be as follows:
- Make a selection encompassing the logo you are trying to remove. Make sure it is larger than the actual logo. You don't need a defined or accurate shape. Just use the lasso tool or the polygon lasso or even the rectangular marquee tool. Move the selection to a part of the shirt that does not have the logo. Try to matcg the lighting and color of the area around the logo.
- Next feather that selection by 5 or 10 pixels to soften the edge. Then Crtl + J or copy and paste to place the feathered selection on its own layer. Now with the move tool position your "patch" on top of the log. The patch should cover the logo and the feathered edges should allow it to blend in seamlessly.
You could also try the Patch Tool. This is often effective but sometimes it can produce some undesired results.
Regards, Murray

You did have quite a time with slices didn't you. Those are for web work.
I used the patch tool on the logo. Took selecting and patching about 7 times to get the whole thing where I was satisfied with it.

OOPS, sorry, I missed your image the 1st time. Obviously the above method will usually not work well if the logo area has waves and creases in it. So I used the Patch tool, doing only one or two letters at a time. This works better than using a large patch all at once. I left some shadow at the arm but you can also patch or clone that away.

Oh wow, good job on both photos. That was the exact type of simple tool I was looking for. Thank-you very much.

Re: Removing a Logo, or anything for that matter

I just wanted to give this a try. Used the patch tool to remove single letters at a time. In the small area by the arm I used the clone tool to remove the letters, and finally finished with the healing brush.

I noticed that the front of the shirt needed some digital ironing, so on a blank layer using a low opacity brush I smoothed the material by painting.
