Well, in I Will, there's this one scene of the seven deadly sins in a graveyard. I actually have two icons from there, and my fonly banner is based off of it, too.

In one part, it zooms in on Envy, but text comes up at that exact same time. Honestly, I went through that scene frame-by-frame, and there isn't one without the text on the close up of Envy.

So, tonight, I decided to try and fix that.

That took me 50 minutes. Using the clone stamp tool and the brush tool and the blur tool. Maybe I should've gotten more experiance using Photoshop first, because honestly the only thing that I use it for is quick two minute icons. >.>....

Err, yeah, you might want a little more practice. ^_^;; One of the things I find when I've done image edits is to just select very small areas by hand and copy/paste repeatedly. And then select a slightly different area and overlap, and repeat the whole process as many times as necessary to make it look necessary. For portions that can't be reconstructed this way, that's when I start using the brush tool, picking up colors from the original image to use. Blur is something for the end and only if necessary, smudge is a little better for fixing details.

And I'd show an example of an image edit I've done before, but am too lazy to dig out the link. ^_^;;

I gave up on the clone stamp tool long ago. One thing about Photoshop is that you can't be afraid to go in and edit stuff to death. ^^;;; And image editing isn't exactly easy; this particular shot had a ton of text. While it is about practice, it's also about having the right tools... since I have a tablet, I just make a new layer and color right on top of the original. ^_^

If you really want to use that image for anything...

What I'm sittin' here wondering is why are ya'll going through this painstaking process when there's a perfectly good video file of the creditless openings and endings that I'm sure most of the people in this community own?
