  • Pick the “Patch Tool” from the Photoshop toolbar.
  • Draw a selection around the object you want to get rid of. This selection should encompass the full object.
  • Once the selection is made, click and drag the selection to a place in the picture that you want to use as a patch. This area should have desired content or texture that can perfectly change the removed object.
  • As you release the mouse key, Photoshop will work its magic by mechanically blending the patch with the surrounding area. The patch tool cleverly analyzes the color, texture, and lighting of the picked patch and seamlessly merges it with the rest of the picture.


Using the content-aware fill

Current-aware fill is a strong spec in Photoshop that can mechanically fill in an area with colors and textures based on its surrounding content.

Next, navigate to the top menu and pick Edit > Fill. A dialog box will emerge, presenting you with different choices for filling out the selection.

Within the dialog box, there are parameters accessible for adjusting content-aware fill, but in most case, the default settings are available.
