Default Easy Photoshop option/program?

Hi there,

We're getting ready to put our house up for sale and I'd like to include a picture of our house taken during the summer however given I wasn't taking it for the purpose of selling the house, our car is in the driveway so I'm looking for a way to 'photoshop' it out of the picture...any suggestions on the easiest way to do this?

Thanks!

Get someone who is skilled in doing this to do it for you.. Depending on the composition of the picture, there isn't just a button to click to remove an object from the shot and automatically fill in what was behind.

You may be able to copy and paste parts of your empty driveway over top of the car area rather than trying to remove the car itself.

GIMP is free and said to be comparable to Photoshop.

I'm sure others could do a much better job, but I guess i was bored.

P.S. I used Paintshop Pro 4 - an old shareware program that is so simple to use....
