So now I am going to close this image without saving and I am going to open up GoldenGate.jpg. Now this is a beautiful shot of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Unfortunately, there is a couple of looky lous here and a couple of dorky statues that are offending my eyes. I want to look at this statue of the Golden Gate Bridge and see nothing but bridge, sky and hill and greenery here.
So what I can do is doctor this image. Now, you have heard me talk about this term already. I am going to mention it several times throughout this series and the term doctoring photos basically means faking something, making something appear as if that were a different way than when you took the photo. So when I send photos of me out to places that I want to work for example, I doctor the photos. I have several chins. I only need one of them.
So digitally, I go in and doctor the image and take a few of those chins away. I will also may be use a few warping effects to bring in my belly a little bit, make my head a little bit smaller, make my nose a little bit smaller and that's referred to as doctoring an image, it's artificial. It's changing the original picture that was taken by the camera. So what I am going to do here is select the Spot Healing Brush Tool, one of my favorite areas in Photoshop and I am just going to click on these areas right here.
This dude and this sign, I want them gone. All I have to do is click on it, boom! gone. This dude, later, this thingy, gone. Now, we still have a little bit of around that's here, just click on that and say, no I never wanted you in the first place, get out of my life forever and there it goes. Obviously, if there are some flaws here, there is a seam this isn't a perfect job. But you have got to admit, that is pretty darn amazing to be able to take a tool like this. Just click and drag and have stuff just instantly gone.
To have Photoshop figure out what should have been there in that blemish's place, so you could use this on freckles or scars or any one of a number of things that shouldn't be there. We will be talking in detail in this training series about this amazing tool and about many other amazing tools for doctoring images, for fixing things like a fat face, like I do every time I take a picture of myself or anyone of a number of things.
