    Hello Photoshop Gurus, I haven't been using PS enough to be good at it yet. I've got a picture for which I'd like to remove the ugly sign in the upper right background. Since the sign is on the fence, I'd like to preserve the pattern of the fence. Yet since its soft focus, it makes it more...

    Motion bluring

    Hey there, I'm doing a background motion blur effect on this picture. I've cut out the car and applied a motion blur only to the background. But I can see that around the car there is a halo. I think it's because the motion blur is also getting the car in the background which is underneath...
