Removing Overlays
If I have a picture with a transparent overlay, along with a nontransparent version of the overlay, is there a way I can remove the overlay from the original image?

One application for this would be removing GUIs from video game screenshots.

RE: Removing Overlays
Is this the non-transparent version of the overlay? Can you upload both the picture and the non-transparet overlay you were talking about?

With clone tool, you can get very good results.

Look at the results. http://screencast.com/t/hPGOAU2aR This was 5 minutes work, if you take your time, you can get great results.

RE: Removing Overlays
Thanks ofnuts. I was thinking that (using the mathematical overlay methodology) that it would be possible to do something like this, but I am not as deep in the subject matter as you are Smile I will play with your techniques as well. The "semi-standard" way I have seen is the clone tool, but I think your way does tend to be the more correct way.
