Leash removal is one of the most common tasks that pet photographers are faced with in Photoshop.  Thankfully, there are approximately 1,001 ways to deal with that challenge.  While we won’t be delving into all of those options today, we will be going over one of the easiest and quickest ways to remove unwanted objects in your image with the Patch and Clone Tool in Photoshop.



I realize that the background of this image made it pretty easy to remove the leash, however I thought it was the perfect way to illustrate the technique especially for those people that aren’t familiar with these tools yet.  We will be looking at some more complicated images during future weeks and exploring some of the other tools available to remove leashes.  Let me know in the comments if there are other editing challenges that you would like to have addressed in future videos!

Don’t forget that the Hair of the Dog Retreat Registration is open here!  Do you want to spend 4 days in South Florida learning about all aspects of running a pet photography business?  The workshop will address photography, post-processing, marketing, pricing, and sales just to name a few!  I hope to see you there!
