I have taken a railing picture, but there's a building behind the railing, how can I remove that building or make that picture transparent as I just need the railing?

You can clean up the image by using the clone tool.  Removing a whole building may be difficult, but this tutorial should point you in the right direction.

If you just want to remove the building, you dont need the clone tool. The clone tool is only for covering over parts of an image, not removing them. The eraser tool, or a series of selections and the delete key are all you need. Just make sure your image is on a transparent layer, not the background layer.

Create a mask of the rail. Inverse the mask and delete.

Hello Rebecca
Try this:

-Promote the image to a "Background layer"
Layers>Promote background layer

-Go to  the eraser tool on the toolbar and press the little arrow so yo can access the background eraser

-Use the background eraser by trying different options in the [Especially "limits"] see if it works for you. I would recommend taking the edges of the rail as reference (make sure the eraser brush is between the rail's edge and the building) so the program takes the rail as an edge and the building as a background

hope it helps

Hi,

You need to remove the background layer - or just turn it off...  Then when you save it, you MUST save it as a .gif file...  On your options, once you select gif, you will have the option to select "transparent".

Thanks.
