Learn to Remove Objects with the Lasso Tool in Photoshop

There are some moments when an extra object in a picture can really ruin the images. On vacations, weddings & parties while taking a picture some shadows or people stopping in front of you interrupt the shot.

Moreover, Instead of worrying about getting the perfect picture every single time, you can use Photoshop tools to edit the photos to fix the problems. You can purchase the latest edition of the Adobe Photoshop here.

For example lets check the right side image: – To make the girl disappear from background, pick the Lasso tool and make a very rough selection around the area to delete. No need to go too close to the edges – we need a bit of information around the area for it to work.

 Steps to Remove un wanted Objects with the Lasso Tool:

  1. Open an image  (from which we want to remove an object) in Photoshop.
  2. In Photoshop, select Lasso tool from left menu bar (short cut key L)
  3. Use the Lasso tool to click and drag around the object, just to select the unwanted area to be removed.
  4. Go to Edit > Select Fill then Choose Content-Aware, and press OK. Photoshop fills the selection with surrounding pixels and blends them together.
