Hi, I wondered if you could help, I have a few pictures that I love but hate the background either there is a lot of mess or there is bits that I need removing, is there a way of doing this or even blurring the whole background out or making it a different colour. Many thanks
Hi Wendy, Thanks for contacting us. Here are a few simple ways to achieve this:
– Use Effects > Focal Soften, Focal Zoom or one of the other Focal effects to blur the background (these effects are a little past half way down the Effects page)
– Use Effects > Doodle (towards the end of the page) to paint a flat color over your image. You can “pick” a color from your image by clicking the Color selector and then clicking anywhere on your image.
– Lastly you can use the Pro tab > Clone tool to clone nearby areas in your photo, over the areas you want removed. This can be very effective on areas such as grass, sky, wood etc.
