Introduction: DELETE TOURISTS FROM TRAVEL PHOTOS

Picture of DELETE TOURISTS FROM TRAVEL PHOTOS

This is an awesome trick for travel photographers. Sometimes you’re at an amazing location, but there are people in the way of your shot. If you want to take a picture of a landmark and people are in your shot, you will likely spend the rest of your adult life cloning people out of the shot unless you try this technique.

Step 1:

Set your camera on a tripod.

Step 2:

Take a picture about every 10 seconds until you have about 15 shots, depending on how fast people are walking around

Step 3:

Open all the images in Photoshop by going to File > Scripts > Statistics. Choose “median” and select the files you took

Step 4:

Bam! Photoshop finds what is different in the photos and simply removes it! Since the people moved around, it fills the area where someone was standing with part of another photo where no one was there.

Step 5:

UPDATE: The “statistics” script mentioned here is only available in Photoshop Extended or in the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop; however, as someone mentioned in the comments, you can get a somewhat similar effect in recent versions of Photoshop Elements by going to Enhance > Photo merge > Scene Cleaner.

This is pretty neat. I noticed that there is a bit of a ghosting effect in the "After" picture though. On the right-hand side, I can see semi-transparent feet near to where the light glare is. Any way to touch that up as well?

Yes , you are right .there are some semi transparent feets because I used less numbers of shutter pics.

More numbers pics more will be the effect this tricks.

I used ONLY 8-9 pics.you shoud use atleast 15 pics.

And Thanks for reading..

This is so cool! Do you have to hold completely still? If you move your arms around does photoshop delete those too? That would be a fun thing to play with as well! Great idea!

camera and your model should be in still.

you can use shutter mode feature of your camera.which automatically will take 15-20 photos at a time.it will take only 5-6 sec
