  • Removing flash induced wall-shadow from Easter pic

    Hi - we just had our Easter pics done for my daughter with a local photographer and though it seemed she had the right equipment in place, we ended up with shadows in some of the pictures. I would really like to remove the shadow in this picture - can someone please help or guide me on how to do this

    Select the background with the magic wand and clone out the shadow.

      I have very limited photo editing skills in Picasa. Can I do this in Picasa and if yes please provide a bit more instruction. Thanks.

        1 Clone in lighten mode.
        2 Paint by sampling the lighter part of the background.
        3. Make a selection, mask, then invert and nudge until shadow is gone.

            I made a blank layer
            fill with same color as background
            mask your picture of the baby and lower part of the picture
            That will give you the new background

            A golden glow all over.

              Thank you so much for your help everyone! I put the image back in picasa and warmified it and now the image again looks just like the other ones from the photo shoot (not so bright) - this process of removing the shadow had brightened the pic quite a bit.

              Could I trouble you for help for just one more because I'd like to send some pics to get printed today and I can tell from these steps that it will take some practice for me to figure out how to do this on my own - huge please and thanks!

                    Here is my before and after... great ideas... I selected the outline of the baby with the shadow side and moved the selection over to the left > feathered it > copy to a new layer and move back into position.. I also used a photo filter to take out some the pink reflection from the carpet and also shadow/highlights to bring back some detail in the beautiful dress..

                        Hi folks, I hope that someone can point me in the right direction.

                        I am hoping to touch up the attached photo. I've seen a number of threads on removing shadows that are on top of an individual in a photo, but I'm having a hard time finding anything that describes how to remove the classic...

                        sorry if this has been tackled before. I need help removing, or greatly reducing the flash glare from the wall.
                        I thought about making a selection from the lower left wall, copy to new layer, place where needed and masking in over the glare... but then I noticed that the wall paper isn't a consistant...

                        by thhall
                        Hey guys. Newby here. I'm ignorant when it comes to photo editing and I need some advice on purchasing a good photo editing software. I take a lot of concert photos (Tim McGraw mainly) and the dang hat leaves a shadow. Can someone give me some advice on a software that would remove the shadow?

                        Removing a flash induced shadow
                        by marinewife515
                        Hi, I am very very new to photo editing and would like some step by step help to remove the shadow on this image and fill in with the background to make it look real.
                        I tried on my own with the cloning stamp and couldn't get the stars to look right.
                        I am using PSE 7 and waiting anxiously...

                        by krrmtchll
                        Hi there I'm really struggling removing the shadow over the left shoulder of this photograph. Its for a hairdressing competition so I can't really cut it out and paste onto a new background either because I don't want to change the hair in anyway.

                        Any advice?
