If you sell your photos on stock websites such as the 500px Marketplace, you have to remove visible logos and branding from objects in the scene. Smaller logos like the one in the image above can be fiddly because there are fewer pixels to work with, but here’s one way to effectively remove small logos.
The key to this technique is painting rather than using healing or cloning tools. With so few pixels available to clone from, sampling a suitable colour and painting over the logo is much more effective. Then by adding a small amount of noise the smooth continuous tone can be made to blend with the image.

The technique you use to remove logos and branding depends entirely on the size of the logo to be removed. In some instances cloning/healing is the best option, others it might be copying larger areas of the Background Layer to overlay, while for others you’ll need to sample colour and paint over the logo. Whichever option you have to take, the process is simple and highly effective.
