I was wondering if anybody on here know how to edit a photo in Photoshop to take away (at least reduce) annoying glare in a photo. I took pictures through the windows at the top of the Washington Monument, and they have a white tint on them because of the glass.

Any tips?

Care to post a few on here so we can look at them by any chance?

Where did everybody go?

Is the glare all over the image or only in certain areas?

If it's just in a small area of the picture, it's easy enough to clone out in Photoshop.

Better to be nouveau than never to have been riche at all.

That's certainly one of the more difficult things to do. It's comparatively easy to remove reflections from skin, but if you had forgotten to take your polarizing filter with you and can't clone an unaffected area, then I'm afraid it's not possible.

Actually, Photohop can't "remove" anything. The effect of removing something is created by painting over unwanted spots.

If you can't clone, maybe masking the affected areas, correcting levels and enhacing contrast can do a little, but don't expect too much.

Edit: I found a 14-minute video tutorial here: Remove Glare and Add A Polarizing Effect

Hope it helps.

Well, I did some Leveling on them, and made them look acceptable. Nothing special, and no photo award coming my way any time soon, but they look better than they did  Smile

Thanks for the tips though
