I have a repeated image in my .psd file. I have a map that contains street numbers and i need to automatically remove all numbers. I am looking for a photoshop tool to remove each number. Is there such a tool? enter image description here

This is how the map looks like and i would like to highlight one number, say 4, and then remove all 4's from the map.

  • are the numbers on a separate layer or are they part of the map image?..

  • Cant you go in the map application and turn of the numbers? Or is this a scan of a physical map?

There's no easy solution if it is a flat file.

Grab the Eraser Tool, the Brush Tool, the Clone Stamp tool, etc. and cover things up.

You have to do this manually, one by one.
