how to remove watermark??
Hi This is an example I made,
How to remove the word ''Andy Lau'' while preserving the photo as best as possible?Is there any built-in function to make this? I know it is not possible to recover 100%. Btw this is only an example I create, my ultimate goal is not to remove ''Andy Lau'' from this picture. I just wish to learn how to do it.

A fully opaque watermark like this is a different story, but since it's all narrow letters it can be very easy with the resynthesizer plugin:
  • Color-select the letters
  • Select>Grow a few pixels to make sure you have the whole letters
  • Set the free-hand select to "Intersect" mode, and circle the watermark (this removes selections elsewhere on black areas)
  • Apply the resynth plugin, giving it a rather narrow context sampling width (10px)



Removing watermarks is against the law in some countries.

OH MY GOD................... IT'S PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you have this original picture of ''Andy Lau'' or did you make it with your magic???
