Advice on Eliminating Person From Photo?


Duplicate the edited version.
Convert one to a Smart Object. (Why? So we can edit the blur anytime we wish!)
Add a Smart Gaussian Blur Filter
Use the SO's layer mask and the Brush Tool to bring back the focus or subject..............In this case the lead runner.

Great advice, that would have been one of my choices. My second suggestion would be to change the background by removing people, bus, and fence, and create a grassy field with a dark wall, and then blur.

My neighbor wants to have a photo of their nephew edited. I told them I would try and help.

They want the second person removed from the photo. I've attached here how I did it using mostly the clone stamp tool. Can you guys maybe give me an idea on how I can do this better?

Any thought would be most appreciated!
