Removing an orb from photo

Hi everyone,

When I googled how to do this, this site came up. I would really appreciate it if someone could do this for me and send it back to me since I have NO clue how to do these things!

Thank you so much.

Re: Removing an orb from photo

Welcome to RetouchPro, the site for advice on all your image retouching challenges! If any of you lovely ladies has access to Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, or really almost any image editing software, it will take you less than 1 minute to brush over that spot with the Burn Tool set to midtones and at a low opacity of about 5 or 10%.
BTW, if you happen to use Photoshop, when you open the file you will likely get a message warning you to turn off Custom Pixel Aspect Ratio. Just go to the View Menu and under Pixels choose square. Your file appears to have been taken from a cell phone video clip and was exported as a jpg with a custom pixel aspect ratio.
Regards, Murray

Re: Removing an orb from photo


welcome to Retouchpro!

I hope you hang out with us for a long time. People around here are very helpful and will guide you on just about anything that you might be interested in the realm of retouching, restoring or general digital techniques.

This site is, however, dedicated to teaching and learning.

I strongly recommend that you take a crack at it and post your best effort and you will see that members will jump all over it and recommend improvements and enhancements immediately.

For those reasons, don't expect anyone doing this for you just because you ask. It might happen, just don't hold your breath.

Be adventurous, do your best and people around WILL help.


And by the way, did I say welcome to
