Sun fading is a common issue when displaying our favourite photos that are exposed to sunlight, over time it will damage the photo. Here is a 4 step guide: How to restore a sun faded photo.
Type 1: Repair with photoshop
1. Equalise the tones
The first step is to equalise the tonal range. Start by adding a black and white adjustment layer and then isolating the faded area with a selection. By viewing the Channels in Photoshop you see the colour separations and where the problem areas lie. Working with one Channel at a time, adjust the levels to equalise the tones to match those outside of the faded area. Now turn off the black and white adjustment layer.
2. Fix the discolouration
Next is to reapply colour tones to make the photo look natural once again. This can be done by adding colour tones to a combination of layers set to ‘Colour’ and ‘Soft Light’. A good tip is to sample the colours outside of the faded area, the aim here is to match the colours as close as you can.
3. Remove the halo effect
With the tonal and colour fading fixed, the last step is to remove the halo effect around the window area. Make a copy of your layer group and merge the copy into a single layer. Using the Clone Stamp and Healing tools blend out the halo line.
4. Finishing touches
For some finishing touches, you may need to sharpen the overall image and do some Level and Colour Balance adjustments.
It is recommended to use imgkits to repair faded photos after sun exposure. imgkits has powerful intelligent photo processing technology. It only takes one minute to repair damaged, faded, yellowed, spotted, elongated, blurred, and distorted photos, and restore the original appearance of the photo.
If your photograph is unfortunately damaged by a large gap or hole, as in the missing corner shown in the image below, you’ll have to perform some reconstructive surgery. The larger the void and the more detail surrounding it, the trickier the reconstruction will be. You can certainly fall back on cropping as a crutch in order to minimize the opening—depending on its location, of course. But if you’re lucky, the missing area will be in a background or piece of clothing that is at least manageably repairable.
Type 1: Repair with photoshop
To start, make a selection from a nearby area that is appropriate to fill in the void. If you’re replacing with trees and shrubs, copy from an area of trees and shrubs. If you’re replacing part of a garment, select from another area of the garment. Copy the selection to a new layer, move it into place over the gap, and use the Transform tool (found under the Edit menu) to rotate, resize and shape the element to fit appropriately over the hole. Then, use the Patch tool (be sure it’s set to Content-Aware and Sample All Layers) overlapping the edges of the patch in order to make it blend seamlessly into the background. This generally does a great job of softening the hard edges from the copy/paste patch.
Another way to fill gaps in the image is with the Paint Bucket. This approach works best if you’re repairing a portion of the image without many changes in shape, texture or detail.
To use it, start with the lasso tool to draw a selection around the void, then activate the Paint Bucket and option-click (or alt-click) to select an appropriate color from a nearby area of the image. Click inside the selection to fill it with the paint color, then again switch to the patch tool. Ensure it is still set to Content Aware mode in the Options bar. (If the Options bar does not show by default at the top of the Photoshop window, turn it on under the Window menu by clicking on Options so that a checkmark appears. Then, click and drag as before to choose an appropriate area nearby to fill in the texture of the patch and blend it with the previously established color.)
Compared with the manual use of photoshop software, the biggest advantage of imgkits is that you only need to upload photos. The artificial intelligence system will automatically identify the wrinkles, spots, missing, color and other defects of the uploaded photos, and the photos can be repaired in 1 minute.
Traditional watermarking methods may provide various methods such as fuzzy, dynamic fuzzy, corrosion, mosaic, frosted, and grid formats. It is also possible to use the average value of the surrounding image pixels, but it is nothing more than rigid, and it is easy to see the traces, which is very unnatural.
The following picture is an example
We use the traditional method to erase the characters in the upper right corner, and the average pixel value of the surrounding pictures
It can be seen that the traces are very obvious
Using Inpaint, you can recover some of the lost photos in a few seconds. Replace any missing, deteriorated or unwanted parts of the picture, it will automatically recognize the surrounding environment and perform intelligent filling, so that the repaired picture can easily remove the defects without any trace.

Sometimes power lines crossing the composition spoil an otherwise perfect photo. An exciting gothic temple, a beautiful mountain panorama, or a gripping night cityscape slashed by ugly wires hanging in the air can be upsetting. Indeed, we rarely have a chance to revisit those places to take another shot, and often we just can’t choose better perspective to render the power lines invisible.
With Inpaint, erasing power lines from a photo is easy as clicking a switch!
We all have photographs with unwanted visitors. Perhaps it was impossible to take a picture of the view without someone walking in front of your camera.

In our study and daily work, we often use some picture materials. When your pictures cannot be used because of various watermarks, are you very helpless? Let me share with you several techniques for removing watermarks from pictures, let’s learn them together.
Type 1：Use PhotoShop to copy and overlay
Open the picture in PS, select the “Marquee” or “Lock Set” tool in the left toolbar, frame the area where the watermark is drawn, select “Transform Selection”, and move the selection to the same color background as the watermark area And select “Copy Selection”, and then use the move tool to move and cover the copied content to the watermarked area. This method is suitable for situations where the watermarking area and the surrounding area are the same or similar.
Type 2：Use PhotoShop’s imitation stamp tool
The imitation stamp tool can be regarded as a relatively practical tool, and it can also be called a very magical tool. It can copy all or part of it into a new image according to the scope of the smear. When we process images, we often use imitation stamp tools, and the scope of use is quite extensive.
Open the picture in PS, select the “Imitation Stamp Tool” on the left toolbar, press and hold the Alt key to select similar colors or patterns in other areas of the picture to sample, release the Alt key, and click or drag the watermark mark area to cover it , And fine-tune it with daubing and other tools after completion. This method is suitable for more complex watermarks and requires great patience from image processing personnel.
Type 3: Use inpaint AI technology to remove
imgkits has extremely advanced and mature AI processing technology. You only need to upload photos, smear the watermark you want to remove, you can quickly remove it automatically with one click, and download and save it. inpaint saves a lot of our work and image processing time, and is the best way to remove the image watermark mark processing.
Today we will learn PS to watermark tutorial, quickly remove the text watermark in the image. In this tutorial, we use PS to remove the watermark from the text on the photo. Generally speaking, the operation is relatively simple. The text is now printed more simply. The key to establishing the text selection with the color range is to set the tolerance. This method is suitable for some relatively simple watermarks, such as some watermarks that are full of the whole picture, and the effect is not bad. We also need to use other operations to remove the watermark, But watermark too many photos, if there is no value, do not take the time to go.
1. Use the marquee tool to select the text watermark.
2. Use the color range to create text selection.
3. Expand the tolerance by 1-2px.
4. Use content to fill out the text part.
The above is the ps removing watermark tutorial, and I will introduce a method for fast AI artificial intelligence to quickly remove the text watermark.
