    Can this smudge on lense be edited out?

    I'm heartbroken there was a piece of grass on the lens when I took this photo of my son's big bass. Does anyone know if this can be edited out somehow? I'm a complete novice. Thanks much!

    Thank you! I don't understand your reply but I've submitted the photo to them, they seem to offer a free trial, and I'll see what they can do. I was thinking it must be possible to blend in the surrounding colors to edit or hide the defect.

    Pstar, I think Bahu is just a spammer pumping some worthless website. To answer your question though, this one is probably of medium difficultly to fix. One could probably correct half of it with the Photoshop content-aware tool, then hand fix the rest. Would prob take half an hour.

    Thanks GB1. I was able to use the service Bahu directed me too for at least this one photo. I'm no expert but they appear to have done a decent job. They seem to have decreased the width of the fish a little tho which I don't like. What do you think?

    Maybe his post wasn't worthless after all then. The image looks OK to me, no real complaints. The width is just a tad decreased.. prob not anything to complain about. I like the image BTW, great smile.
