Hello again everybody! I haven't been on here for ages, I dont take as many pictures as I used to...

Anyway my Dad asked me to take a horse photo because he wants to get it put on the side of his trailer, to advertise his shaving buisness.

So now I have issues, because I didnt notice in time that the shavings weren't out far enough... thus all the weeds are showing and that dosnt work. I have already tried to cut it out and paste it into a new pic of the barn and that looks false. I can't get enough of deatil around the hooves.

I also thot about just blending the lower part into a picture of shavings but I'm not sure how. If all else fails I can take a totally new pic... but the horse isn't exactly photogenic so I'm not looking to do it if I don't have to

THANKS FOR ALL AND ANY HELP!!!!

I noticed when I did that the clone parts got really soft. I think that you should pull the weeds and try a reshoot

well I did do that,it just gives it the 'edited' look so I thot maybe I was doing it wrong... If I did leave the shavings like that, what about the rest of the picture? thinking maybe the shadow wouldnt look right?

Thanks everyone!

You will have the shooting information in the exif data, simply go out and shoot the shavings with the same settings. Place the original over the shot of the shavings, and erase the parts where the weeds are, to reveal the shavings from the picture below...

Cloneing with the stamp tool, unless you do it with individual clicks, and not use it ase a paint brush it will soften the image...

sounds like a good idea Kenny! Do I just do it like a layer?

Yes, open both images... Drag the one with the horse over the one of the shavings... Create a layer mask (easier for corrections) and erase the layer mask where needed...

That was a nice advice Kenny, I think I should give it a try one.
