Removing distractions in Photoshop can make your images look more professional and appealing. One of the tools you can use for this purpose is the Brush tool, which allows you to paint over unwanted elements with a sampled color from the image. To use the Brush tool to remove distractions, follow these steps:
- Select the Brush tool from the toolbar or press B on the keyboard.
- Choose a soft round brush and set the opacity and flow to 100%.
- Create a new layer and make sure the Sample All Layers option is checked.
- Hold the Alt key and click on a clean area of the image to sample a color that matches the background.
- Paint over the distractions on the new layer with the sampled color.
- Adjust the brush size and hardness as needed to blend in the edges.
By using the Brush tool on a new layer, you can remove distractions in Photoshop without affecting the original image. You can also use other tools like the Spot Healing Brush or the Clone Stamp tool for more complex situations.
