Removing part of a photo

Posted 07 May 2014 - 10:45 AM

I've been trying to remove using Photoshop the "Australian Marine" watermark without damaging the background color.. I tried erasing it but the color in the background is gradient and it just doesn't look ok just covering it. Could you please help me on how could I remove that part of the poster?

Any particular reason you are removing their watermark? That seems somewhat shady to try and re-purpose their work.

I'm confused: are you just trying to crop this guy out?

What are you after and what can't you do?

If so, it's kind of a poor image. Try their website?

I'm not trying to crop that part of the poster. I have an assignment at college to bring a poster on the topic of pollution and I want it without the watermark on it. I want to have a poster that it's not watermarked. The thing is, it's just an assignment so there's no copyright infringement involved.

Wait.. are you trying to turn in the poster as your own? If not then what's wrong with keeping their insignia and giving credit where credit is due?

It is perfectly possible, but you would need to explain why you are doing this ...

I know it seems shady, but it just an assignment I got in my Chemistry class. I'm not getting a grade on someone else's work. It's just for informative purpose.

Look.. I am super duper passionate about folks respecting the rights of the content creators. So far you haven't really told anyone a reason why you can't turn in this poster - with the original creator's watermark - for this chemistry assignment that you are not graded on. That is, as you put it, shady.

I know I'm repeating myself as I've already explained it a few times. I got an assignment at college about pollution. I only have to present it in front of my class and there will be a bibliography at the end of my presentation. I just don't want the watermark on the poster mainly because it's poor quality and I have to print it really large.

Mainly because it's poor quality and printed big will just ruin it.

Regardless - let's not remove the content creator's watermark.. Printing or not that would make the poster attributed to you, and I won't let content theft fly here.

I am closing the topic and asking you do not pursue further questions on altering images to remove their content creator's signatures or watermarks. As always if you have questions on the 'why' feel free to shoot me a PM.
