Need help removing image from photo!
First, Hello and thank you for whatever assistance you can render.

Okay, I have a photo that includes the date the picture was taken on the front of it. The text is in yellow and part of the date covers my suited arm. My question is how can I remove the date, and have the area where the date was reflective of the colors that are in the background (i.e., my suit is gray, so I want the area that the yellow date originally covered, now to appear the same color as my suit.

I am using GIMPshop 2.8.8(?)

Again, thank you for any assistance you can give me.

RE: Need help removing image from photo!
Very rarely there is a one-fix-cures-everything solution.

If using windows or linux (don't know MAC) look for the smart remove/resynthesize script/plug-in.

This is good for a plain-ish background.

Otherwise, the clone tool carefully applied maybe followed by a little 'faking-in' with say the blur tool.


Just a comment, I am sure you have a good reason to use gimpshop but IMHO anything with this in the small print is dubious.
" is distributing custom installers... In addition to managing your download and installation, InstallIQâ„¢ will offer free popular software that you may be interested in."

Depending on OS, use the offical installer or maybe Parthas for windows, for linux it depends, 2.8 is nice but 2.6 is possibly more functional at the moment.
