Rather than discuss the ways to do this and the problems you will find, I will just refer you to a similar discussion there was in 2009. The link below takes you there;
I hope that helps.
I have a group photo that i want to edit and remove the other people in the photo. Is there any free photo editing software out there that will allow me to take part of the back ground to cover over the person so the picture blends and doesn't look edited. Or is there another way of doing this. Sorry i am new to this and have never edited a picture before so any help would be appriciated.
Thanks guys and gals
