Editing Question

So to make a long story short my grandma passed away 2 months before our wedding and well me and my aunt are not on good terms.  She is awful!


There are some pics that I just want her out of...maybe you can tell why.


I currently have lightroom, but I'm still new and I don't know if the program can even help me with this.  TIA

There is a cloning tool in LR but it's really slippery. I rarely use it for specific imagery to eliminate (like people) but only spots, dust, and maybe a car covered up by a bush.


I have been retouching (this is not editing, this is RETOUCHING) for a long time and even I would send this out to a pro. Someone here might be able to do an ok job on it but I see too many specific background elements that need to be reproduced in order to make it look real.


Don'tcha hate it when the wrong person is right THERE?  I get this request a lot and have to break the bad news to my clients.


This has to be done in Photoshop. Sorry!

Do you have other photos of the entry way without people or with fewer people in front?  That'd make it a lot easier.  Or better yet, return to the location and take a few shots from the same angle.  Then someone can do magic with those photos in photoshop.  I can do it for you or you can find a pro, but another photo(s) of the location is essential.

Thanks for your help ladies.


Yelp - please PM me and give me a quote of what this will cost.  Thanks.  In the meantime, I will look through my pictures and see what I can come up with. :)))))

I'm no pro so it'll be free of charge.  I just like playing with photoshop.  So no guarantee it'll look perfect.  I'll pm you my email and you can send the files to me if you find them.

Yelp, I'd like to see what you end up with.  That's not one I would volunteer for myself! and I'm a pro! ;o) Good luck!

doolittle, if I were a pro in this field I wouldn't volunteer either.  I don't have reputations to worry about and I'm so bored at work it's ok.  If all fails, I can always paste an angry bird over her face lol!
