How to Remove a Fence Using Photoshop

In certain situations, you may be stuck behind a fence shooting your subject, which can lead to a very distracting grid across your final image. Such a situation is certainly annoying, but luckily, it is something you can fix in post, and this great video tutorial will show you how to get rid of the fence using Photoshop.

Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this helpful video tutorial will show you how to remove a fence from an image using Photoshop. This situation often arises if you are shooting sports or if you visit a place like a zoo, and while it is annoying to deal with, it should not stop you from taking photos, as you can fix the issue in post. Of course, while you can get rid of the fence in Photoshop, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. One trick pro sports photographers use when they are stuck behind a fence is getting as close as possible to the fence and using as wide of an aperture as possible. This will often render the fence completely invisible and save you a fair amount of time in post. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Morganti.

Gee. Maybe Unmesh copied from this one, which predated his.

Just about every PS tutorial covers topics that someone else has covered in a tutorial. So, I wouldn't be too critical of Mr. Morganti. I find his videos quite helpful, and I appreciate that I don't need to go searching all over the web to find others' tutorials on how to do something in PS. I know his tutorials will always be well done. The more people who explain how to accomplish things in PS, the more people will be educated on how to accomplish things in PS.

To quote the Faber College motto, "Knowledge is good."

You are wrong - Unmesh's video was published on January 7 2020, and this video was published on January 12 2020. So - this is - in fact another copy of Unmesh's work! Also - I think that it is one thing to "covers topics that someone else has covered in a tutorial", as you say, and quite another if one does that in exactly the same way. That is plagiarism.

Oh, the horror. As Shakespeare wrote,

"Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides: Who cover faults, at last shame them derides."

Or was that Francis Bacon? A scandal nearly as egregious.

Unmesh is great and all but his videos are long winded. I'm glad someone out there was able to explain the same technique in half the time. I'm waiting for someone else to do it in a minute.

Agree with Bert - this guy simply copied the idea for this video from Unmesh

The process is straightforward if you have the necessary knowledge, and it is well worth your time to complete.
