Crop out unwanted subject matter for a better composition (CS2/CS3/CS4/CS5)

Added on Monday 2nd of May 2011 04:16 am EST


Adobe Photoshop CS2/CS3/CS4/CS5

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows



Sometimes, no matter how carefully you compose a shot, some unwanted person, item, or area of the subject manages to end up in an otherwise good image. Take for example the third wheel, shown in Figure A.

While you can easily delete the photo, you can also salvage it with Photoshop’s Crop tool. Oftentimes a simple crop, as shown in Figure B, is all you need to get the picture you want!
