HOW TO USE PHOTOSHOP TO REMOVE WATERMARKS?
Photoshop provides far more options to edit and process photos, and can do a better job with difficult watermarks and complex backgrounds.
The advantage of Photoshop is that along with the usual clone and stamp tools, it also offers the Spot Healing brush, which works with just one tap. Photoshop's Content Aware options are also more advanced, and can provide a more natural result.
Let us have a look at the steps involved!
Adding a blank layer
As soon as you open the image in Photoshop, you need to add a layer above it. Creating a blank layer will ensure that the original photo underneath is protected from any mistakes you make.
Name the blank layer as Remover, so that you are able to identify which layer you need to be working on.
Select Spot Healing
Find the Spot Healing Brush in the Toolbar. Like the name suggests, this brush will heal the spots on which you click, and replace the gaps with the surrounding pixels.
Also, turn the Sample All Layers option on! This is necessary so that Photoshop can use the layer below to understand how the gaps can be filled once the watermark is gone.
Select Content Aware
Along with the Sample All Layers option, you will also see a Type option to your left. Change this to Content Aware. This is a powerful tool, because it allows Photoshop to be aware of all the pixels around the watermark and use them for filling the gaps.
This is an important step because it leads to the most natural results!
Tap and Remove
Now just click on the watermark and watch it disappear!
In case you find these steps difficult to follow, you can check out a few videos on Youtube which explain how to remove watermark from photo. This is a great technique for removing wrinkles and acne too!
