    Age is getting to me, I recall that there is a method to remove power lines easily, ICan’t remember how it’s done.

    In many software packages it is called the healing brush and it may appear as an option under cloning. Some packages let you mark each end of the cable and the package will "heal" a straight line between tbe markers, others let you paint a line. The precise instructions depend on the software in use.

    You could always make them part of the picture instead...

    Thanks very much for posting that link. I live in Cyprus which has many traditional and picturesque villages - all spoiled with telephone wires and electricity cables. I had no idea there was a dedicated solution to removing wires other than Photoshop tools. Downloaded and about to test!

    We have the same situation in Devon and I think of the cables as being part of the environment in which we now live. Taking them out seems wrong to me except for some very specific applications.

    Now just you look here! I've got all these chocolates that I want to put in a box, and the box must have a pretty picture on the lid, and those damned wires just don't cut it! :mad::D

    Note 1. I also am a Devonian, born and bred, but left before electricity was invented. :rolleyes:
    Note 2. Regrettably, I still aspire to chocolate box standard. :eek:

    Do they do a similar one for TV aerials?

    You've just reminded me of the time they were shooting Chariots of Fire just along the street from me, I believe the residents of the nearby tenements were paid to have their TV aerials removed (temporarily).
