What is the recommended way to remove the "3" and circle it contains on this logo? The magic eraser/wand I didn't seem to fix it with. Any pros willing to assist?

    Why dont you ask for the vector original? And is redrawing a solution for you?

  • Unfortunately not, I suck at drawing. Thanks! Would ideally like to do something in Photoshop.

    Best way is to redraw it. It's merely a diamond shape.

This image is in very low resolution. I would almost call it pixel art. Editing logos like this isn't really the correct way. Normally you would have a vector file where you could just delete the unwanted objects and export a new PNG.

This said, it's pretty simple in Photoshop. Many ways to do it. This is a pretty hands on way which is only possible because of the pixelated and simple nature of the image.

  • Optionally uncheck View > Show > Smart Guides so they don't interfere.
  • Select the Rectangular Marquee Tool and make a selection which covers the unwanted part.
  • Press D to reset to Default Foreground and Background Colors (in case they aren't already).
  • Press Alt + backspace to fill the selection with black.
  • Select the Polygonal Lasso Tool and make a selection which covers a part of the figure you can use to paint in the missing part.
  • Select the Move Tool, hold down Alt and drag duplicates of the selected area to repair the missing part. Make sure to exactly follow the existing lines. Simple in this case, because they are all 45 degrees.

  • I'm not super experienced with PS so I was drawing a blank. This is really cool to learn, thanks Wolff!

  • I'm kinda unable to duplicate it as clean as that. The color of the blue part is lighter than yours too .. any ideas?

  • You're welcome @Bitter. Just remember that this is the simplest form of quick fixing an image. If you have a smarter workflow (like having the original vector file) you never have to do stuff like this. 😀

    @Bitter, uhm hard to say ... do you perhaps have some Feather value applied? It's in the top, right below the menu. It should be set to 0. In this case you could also uncheck Anti-alias as you don't need that for such a simple operation. And make sure to select a few black pixels like I do. Don't try to make a selection that follows the shape perfectly.
