Have you ever wanted to get rid of the date-stamp your camera puts on your photos? Put Photoshop's Rubber Stamp Tool to use and you can make stuff vanish -- like magic!
How's It Done?
Touching-up your photos in Photoshop is easier than you might think. The only tool used to manipulate the images you see here was the Rubber Stamp Tool (Photoshop 5.5 "Rubber Stamp Tool" icon shown to right, other versions may vary).
In Photoshop, simply click on the Rubber Stamp Tool, then hold the Alt key (PC) or Option key (Mac) down while you click the mouse on the location you'd like to "pull" texture from. Once the "source" spot has been specified you can then click the mouse (without any keys held down) on the "destination" spot that you'd like to change.
To get good results you'll want to pick "source" spots with textures that will fit-in with the "destination" area.
That's all there is to it! Practice the process a bit and you'll soon be a "Photo Magician"!
Now You See It...
