(Am a PS newbie)
Had a number of shots taken from a car (where car
window cannot wind down) disabling the flash.
Images had some reflection.

Understand that using polarising filter during the image
capture can reduce such problem.

Anyway to PS them out?

Mmm, not very sure about the advice. :)

Does it mean using levels and curves.

Or selection?
or any specific filters?

i think he meant slowly and carefully cover them up with cloning ... bit by bit

thanks for info. Seems like it is best to do it right the first time..
I.e. use polarising filter during image capture.
But I am using digicam P&S, so boh bian.... :)

There's a software filter package by B+W, which contains Cir-Polarizing filter out of the six inlcuded type. It cost around $100 ++ (can't remember the actual $) which I would say IS very cheap.

If you want to use filters/adjustments in PS, play around with Levels and contasts.

I dont think there's anyway way to remove the reflection using PS cos the detail behind the reflection is lost. Best you can do, as the people above have mentioned, is just to make it less obvious.

Shaff is right..
But anyway.. if i have to rescue this mission.. would take/search for the photo of what's on the other side of the window (or maybe replace with something else to make the photo interesting), and erase the reflections. And replace the new photo into it... and add some new reflections to make it more realistic...

There's always a cure for adobe photoshop. :D

You may identify the gradient pattern and reproduce it to cover the entire window in PS.
