Replace Missing Part of a Photo

Post#1 by terdallaujar » 11 Mar 2020, 12:25


I am sure this is a simple answer but I am stuck.

I am trying to remove the background on a photo and then place the photo on a new background. The hair portion of my photo has been cut off. Once the photo has been put on the new background, how to I add to the photo to replace the missing hair?

This was done quickly and roughly, mainly because the image is very small.

1. Make a selection of some hair on the side of the head.
2. Copy this selection and paste as a new layer.
3. Move this new layer to top of the head and rotate as required. (Unified Transform tool best for this)
4. Add a Layer Mask to the new the layer and use a gradient to blend it in.

In the attached xcf file I have left the selection active to show where the hair was copied from.

The idea I used was to create a layer underneath the original and on this layer using the clone tool. That was basically it.

If I understood correctly, the photo was cut and placed on a new background, and now you want to recover some of the hair lost in the cut.
I think that first, after cropping the photo, one should proceed with the replacement of the cut hair. Which is the most complex part of this edition. Only then should the photo be placed on a new background.

If you still have the part of the photo cut out without having been put on the new background, I suggest this approximation:
  • First, rebuild the hair that has been cut.
  • Only then insert that image on a new background.
