Remove something from a photo

In this blog I will show you how to quickly remove something from a photo in Adobe Lightroom (Classic).

Rather watch the video with instructions? Then click here or scroll down to the end of this page.

You can download the photo I used here.

Healing: Content-Aware

Open the photo you want to edit. Then select healing.

There are 3 options now: Content-Aware Remove, Heal and Clone. To remove larger objects, Content-Aware Remove is the best option. So select that.

Make sure the opacity is 100%.

Content-Aware Remove

You can change the size of the brush with the [ and ] keys. Brush over the subject or object you want to remove.

Brush over object

Lightroom will now remove the selected object for you. If you don’t like how this turned out, you can press ‘refresh‘. Lightroom will then update the selected spot with different content. You can do this until you’re happy with the way it looks.


And that’s how you remove something from a photo in Adobe Lightroom!
