    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).

    Just to close, watched a man who looked photoshopped himself on utube, it’s select spot healing brush, select content aware , left click start of path, hold shift and left click to complete, works well

    "We demand that we may or may not be photographed on wires! It is a fundamental bird right!"

    I hope that I am not risking censure by mentioning that Serif have a 30% off offer on their affinity products.
    The released versions of photo and publisher are now pretty stable and very good. Designer might be equally so but I don't know because I have not got into it.
    The recent beta releases of photo have been entertaining, in the Chinese sense;):eek::rolleyes:. Hay Ho; that's what betas are for.
    The released versions are a serious competitor to Adobe. I do wish they would do a DAM module to challenge the Lightroom database.
    PS Only noticed this because Thom Hogan mentioned it.

    since the 18th century it was factory chimneys and smoky industry.
    Then it was telegraph wires follows by pylons and cables. Street furniture, and road signs.

    This is the reality.
    Why pretend?
    We look at old Victorian photographs and admire what we see.
    People will be just as interested in photographs of the way things are to day.
    They will Chuck out our falsified offerings to a doctored never land.
    Life and times as they really are retain their true interest.

    Exactly! All those "unspoilt" cottages photographed in the 1900s were over crowded hovels full of starving, sick children and parents at the end of their tethers, due to the poverty in which they lived.
