For example we will use an image and try to remove the watermark right across the face of the image.
Open the image in Photoshop CS5, and select the “Spot Healing Brush Tool” from the toolbar. You can also press J to select it.
Select the option Content Aware Fill on the toolbar at the top.
Increase or decrease the size of the brush as required, and carefully paint it over the watermark.
Release it, and the line is gone.
If the result is unsatisfactory, undo it or go back in History and repeat. Use the smallest brush size as possible to get good results.
For larger areas we will use the lasso tool. Select the watermark to remove using the Lasso Tool (L). Notice that I selected only a part of the watermark. This is because the image behind the watermark is not uniform. To get the best results work with small areas of the watermark.
Now Go to Edit menu and Go to option Fill. Make sure “Content Aware” is selected under “Use” and press OK.
Remember, you can always undo and repeat the steps. Here is the final result with the complete watermark removed. Not perfect but passable.
- Last but not least, this method doesn’t give your perfect picture. So, better to buy the image from the source
