How to delete someone using Adobe Photoshop CS3?
It will depend on the background as to how easy or hard this will be.
Read the help files on using the Cloning Stamp.
First I would cut out the person(s) directly adjacent to the person you want to remove (take your time to get this done accurately - enlarge the view to say 300% - note that you can do sections at a time and ADD to the selections until you have all of the people you want - you only need to do this along the edges of the area that you want to erase the person from - COPY the selection, do not CUT the selection).
Paste this back as a new layer. Slide this to one side.
The reason for doing this is to make the next step easier without having to worry about working up to an edge.
Now working with the background layer:
If the background is easy - use 100%, then blend in by selecting another cloning area of a similar background and use it sparingly at say 25% to make the new area look different from the original cloning area. I would just remove "noticeable" objects - possibly by just selecting a spot and clicking once (doing this as many times as you need to.
If the bacground is difficult - you will need to "construct" the background using the Clone Stamp - for instance, if there is a tree branch that needs to be extended through the new area - you may have to carefully clone it bit by bit until it looks right - don't forget to clone from different areas if the background is trees as trees do not tend to have long straight branches.
When you have done all of this, go back to Layer 1 (the new one you created earlier) and slide this back into position.
Under Layers in the Menu Bar - defringe the image (layer 1) - this will blend it back in better (experiment with the number of pixels). Then flatten the image.
