Remove a Person From a Photo
The first thing you need to do is open the image in Photoshop.
Let’s start by creating a selection around the person that you want to remove from the photo. You can use the Polygonal Lasso Tool for making the selection.
Next, you should select the Clone Stamp Tool from the toolbar at the left-hand side of your Photoshop screen.
You’ll need to use Option + Click to define a source point, and then you can paint over the person or the object to remove it. (This will not affect any part of the image except for inside your selection.)
As you are painting, define new source points as needed.
That’s it! You can see this before and after image below:
