How can I remove clouds on satellite imagery?

Hi everyone,

I'm brandnew in this forum and I think I'm at a good place here to learn about retouching with Adobe Photoshop. I'm sure my question is easy to answer. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Sorry for the double post. Please remove first one, mods, thank you.

Re: How can I remove clouds on satellite imagery?

Hi Phil, thank you for your input. I don't think that your forum would let me upload pictures of around 700 MB. Satellite pictures are of extremely high resolution. But what I can do is make a jpeg version of it and upload that picture. The size is still 5.76 MB.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-4...ew?usp=sharing I'm not sure if you can retrieve the picture or not.

Cool Re: How can I remove clouds on satellite imagery?

Well I was able to upload the file you referred to. I did downsize it some as well. You could remove the clouds by cloning into the clouds the adjacent area. And in some cases, selecting the cloud and filling with Content Aware Fill

Re: How can I remove clouds on satellite imagery?

Not so sure I understand what's going on here. I have done a fair amount of aerial photography and the intent was to show what was there on the ground. If you had a cloud over the subject one could not tell what was there.

If you clone in the surrounding area over the cloud you still do not know what was really there. So why are you doing this?

Kind of reminds me of the story about the customer who wanted the hat taken off a portrait of her deceased husband. When the retoucher asked her what color his hair was her reply was "why do you ask, you should be able to tell that when you take his hat off".

The file will be used in Microsoft Flight Simulator as photographic scenery.

You can use programs for this. Such as Snapheal. Or online services. Even the phone has similar applications.You do not need to do this yourself.
