Hi, this is my first request.

I need to remove the big "preview" watermark in the center and the small one on the top, im making this request because this is for a gift to my girlfriend.

Great work John, how did you do it?

Here's mine.

Here's how I did it.

Made a selection.

Used a Curves adjustment layer to remove the watermark.

Sampled the color of the poster, added a color overlay layer using the selected color and the same selection, then set the BM to lighten.

Great work John, how did you do it?

I noted that the black, grey and white were pretty much mutually exclusive in the image (other than aliasing) so selection by tone was a good option. Here are the steps I took

- Sampled black and created a lower Layer background

- Magic wand selection of gray set to Contiguous and made two or three selections in each letter

- Created Layer mask from the selection and used the Select and Mask option for the Layer Mask and did a very slight movement of mask edge to eliminate leftover gray edges.

- Done

Clearly many ways to get the job done as always with PS :beerchug:
