    Dirt in picture

    Hi everyone,

    The attached picture is one of mine that I've cropped and done a little work on, but unfortunately it has a bunch of dirt and crap around the edges, and you can see one of the other fish in the top right. Any suggestions on how to fix or minimize that stuff?

    I do have Adobe CS 5, and I believe there is a way to make the dirt and crud disappear, or the other fishes tail, but I'm not sure how to do so. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Hi Chris,

    Welcome to CiC - great to have you with us.

    Real easy to fix ...

    1. For the crud, just use the healing brush, and ...

    2. For the tail, just use the content-aware fill feature (select it and press the DEL key).

    Happy to do it for you if you like.

    Colin - Thanks for the suggestions. And the picture - That's incredible!

    Chris - Sorry! But I doubt anyone will confuse the two of us, as I have zero idea what I'm doing!
