How to Quickly Remove Your Ex in Photoshop

So many times people post cropped photos on social media in order to get rid of their ex or someone they don't care about anymore. While cropping gets rid of the unwanted face, it still leaves other body parts in the frame, and makes the photo look weird - and makes people focus on the fact someone was cropped out instead of focusing on that great photo of you. This very informative and easy to follow video shows a very easy way to get rid of a person in just few minutes, and how to leave no trace behind.

The photo photoshopped in the video seems to be too complicated to work on and remove the boyfriend - his hands are on his girlfriend, and he's right behind her. But this 14-minute tutorial proves it's actually something we can all do. Of course it won't work in 100% of the cases, but the techniques can be used for so many different uses - not only for getting rid of unwanted people.

OK, a joke:
Two guys looking for mushrooms in the forest.
One finds a Leica and tell the other, hey look what I got.
He looks at it, gets it and throws it away.
Do we go for mushrooms or leicas, he shouts

Just watched this, wow, I do a lot of retouching and at the beginning I was thinking, “no way, he’s going to have trouble with that shoulder…” wrong. Great job Aaron and great post Noam!

In front of her and her friends would be a more successful way.

Looks like Aaron missed a little bit of Eric's shoulder in her hair. Otherwise, awesome as always.

If you watch enough of Phlearn's videos, small details like that are left behind all the time. But, the little things usually aren't the purpose of the tutorials; it's more about teaching techniques very quickly :)
