    Hi;
    You'll need to be a lot more specific . How is the text displayed above the image? Is it part of the image itself? If so, you'll need to use a graphics program to brush it out.

    That will be pretty hard to do, seeing as he has a tatoo on his arm - brushing it out will not be enough as you will need to know what that tatoo looks like exactly - it will look pretty naff if it was airbrushed out. Further, the fact that his clothes is baggy also does increase the difficulty of doing so.

    you probably couldnt do that unless you have the original PSD file for photoshop with all of the layers.

    I don't think that s/he has it - if they do, they may have flattened the image, merging the image and text together, and possibly lost the image - or on the otherhand, wants to use an image found on the internet.

    Everyone here is right -- and I can tell you don't know much about editing images, eh?

    Doing this would require you to either clone or paint in the pieces of the photograph that are missing, by using color you picked out of the image, or photos from a different section.

    You could just take the first photo you sent, crop it down to the head section like the second photo, and you would not have the text in it... but your just getting the dudes head.

    If you want to learn how to go through and repaint everything, and you have a few hours to kill, I'll talk you through it. I just want you to know what the hell your getting into -- you're not going anywhere for a while if you do this, and you'll be doing something that is rather difficult for someone new to the program.

    ...yet, if you still want to learn, post us again and I'll give you somewhere to move with this.
