is he the infamous Man U fan that happily pose for team pic with the team during one of the champion league match? :D

It can be done using PS7, mainly using cloning to "replace" the person.

It can be done be lasso out the group and paste onto a clean background.

You may need lots of paitence to do this. A "pen" will be useful instead of a mouse.

Good luck.

haha.. no no no.. it's juz a simple group photo of my frens and this kid jumped out of nowhere behind us.. :)

err.. i dun really get wat u mean leh.. care to explain a bit more on the methods pls? :embrass:

Zoom in down to 100% or more and use both the clone tool and healing tool to duplicate parts of the background and erase that guy from the pic.

thanks so much for ur help! :)

however, i've oni made use of the 'healing' tool to imitate the background..

didn't make use of the 'clone' tool leh.. can anyone tell me how the 'clone' tool should be used pls?
