What you'll need
One of the easiest ways to remove unwanted people or objects from your photo is to simply ‘lasso’ them out of there. Select the Lasso tool from the left-side panel and go around the items you want to remove. Next, right-click your selection and choose Fill.
A new window will appear, choose the Content-Aware option, ensure opacity is set to ‘100%’ and click OK. This will automatically fill the area you selected with other parts of the image. It’s really easy to do, and you can just repeat this for all the items you want to remove.
After you’ve finished all your vanishing acts, you can use the Healing Brush tool to fix up the places where the Content-Aware tool didn’t quite make it spot-on. You can also use the Clone Stamp tool to make it even better.
If you need to replace a larger section of the photo, select the Lasso tool and highlight an area you think could work in its place. Then press Command/Control and C followed by Command/Control and V to copy and paste it. Next, move it into place, head back to the Layers panel and click on the Add a mask icon. Now all you need to do it and soften the edges with the Brush tool – and you’re all done.
