      Hi James… yup! Knowing which tool to use for which retouching job is part of the course. There is a reason photo RAW has several tools.

    Really looking forward to this. I’ve had minor success getting rid of simple elements, but I really need to learn how to get rid of people and more ‘complex’ distractions. Thanks for this!

    If Scott can make me clearly understand the subtle differences between Retouch Brush and Perfect Eraser, I’ll be happy.

    Hi, I watched the video tutoria about deleting objects or people who distract the vision of the photos, and as a result seems to me
    Very good.
    A unique to be remarked on vs products in general.
    are only in the English language
    You are deleting it so it is not easy to recreate what you show me also using the slowdown of the video
    And last of the times that I have reported my poor thought I never had an answer
    Thank you!

    Excellent course, gave me a better understanding of the retouch tools. Found your explanation of the ‘divide and conquer’ use of the clone tool particularly helpful.

      Great, Robert! Glad you enjoyed it.

    Great course. But, boy, the power lines in the “Mail Box” photo are really annoying. What is the best way to remove them?

    1. On April 12, 2019 at 12:33 pm Scott Davenport replied:

      I’d recommend a combination of the Clone Stamp Tools and the Perfect Eraser. For example, the lines in the lower right corner. Use cloning to maintain the edge of the mailbox post whilst introducing a gap of sky into the power lines. Then, use the Perfect Eraser to take care of the rest of the lines.

    I just watched all of the videos. Great job! I was already familiar with all of the tools, with exception of the layering technique. Watching the videos and being able to work along with them was super helpful. The pagoda image also helped me better understand different ways to use the tools together. Much appreciated!

      Hi David, great to hear! So glad you found the course valuable.

    Thanks for the course Scott. You did a great job explaining the different tools and the practice files definitely helped highlight where each tool excels. Also excellent tips on combining tools. I’ll feel more confident using these tools in the future.

    Nice job…really helped me pull together the 3 fix tools to use in tandem. Pagoda image was a good one for practice…I removed a couple of additional distractions (for me) and then decided to make it look like a found old image … likely could have used the original image (<:
    You certainly make ON1 membership the best deal in town!
    PS: I recall the last video said we could post our results … ???where

      Hi James… you should be able to share photos inside the ON1 Plus forum.
      Glad you enjoyed the course!
