Hi Everyone. I'm new to Afinnity but, so far, after watching the tutorials, am very impressed by the product. I often find myself shooting birds in thick forest regions. The branches can absolutely kill the shot  (attached - "Before" is a Limpkin shot at Corkscrew Sanctuary in Naples, Florida). I used both the Clone and Inpainting brush tools to remove the branches with the result shown below ("After"). I'm not happy with the smudging and discolouration that resulted. Should I be trying a different approach to removing these pesky branches? There must be a better way given the obvious power of this editing tool.

 

Thanks all!

Givven the circumstances, I think that the tools have done an excellent job!

It could still be improved, it all depends on how much time you are willing to spend on it.

Everyone,

 

I've enjoyed the replies, especially the ones about pirates and limpy limpkins. It seems that I simply need to refine my skills with the Clone tool. Lets just say that once I get a leg up, I'll be on my way to fixing these problem areas. Thanks guys. I learned something and had a good laugh :) too.

Late comment, but did you try the inpainting tool? Worth a try.

All the best.

 

That's what he started out with Tom.

Judging by the postings here it's not a patch on the clone tool!

lol! I hope that was a pun intended lol but inpainting works well you just have to pick the right subject for the tool. With the birds repeat patterning the clone tool works well, but with a big blob of green the inpaint tool will struggle.

Hi all,

Apologies for suggesting the in painting tool when you had first tried it.

Teach me to try and speed read late at night.

Cheers
