The Shortcut

Now With Fewer Tourists

An exceedingly easy method to banish unwanted people from your photos.

Even the best photos of crowded destinations tend to have people blocking some of the snapshot’s intended target. The video above shows how one of the most useful (and simple) features in Photoshop can banish them.

Once you take the photos, here’s the path: Photoshop > File > Scripts > Statistics. Select Median from the drop-down menu, then click Browse and find your photos. Note: This method works best for images without changing features, like flags blowing in the wind.
