    Hi,
    I'd like to remove logo from picture (and other pictures with the same logo):
    http://img216.imageshack.us/img216/6080/chryslerviper1lk.jpg
    Can I invert the text effect on this image somehow that it will be very less visible or invisible ? Maybe there is software that can do the job (even if it will cause some image loss in the place where the watermark is)?

    thanx for your help

    What do you intend to do with a copyrighted photo?

    You can use Photoshop or some other tool to carefully clone out what you dont want

    If you would have looked on the web a little harder you would have found this.

    Wimpy369: is it about asking or answering questions ?;)
    I found this photo also with google and made the logo myself. I was asking how to remove similar logos from photos because I'm curious.

    linskyjack: thank you for response, but I need to do it with pictures that have a little bit more colours so it won't be easy to clone around it.

    I found this, but I have no idea how to use it

    For what you are doing the clone tool can be your best friend. All one needs to do is learn how to use it. You did a good job with the text you put in the pic so I would tend to believe you have a good grasp of things.

    Thanks, I'll try that. But I'm very beginner in photoshop. Beside the biggest problem is that I want to remove the logo from a whole bunch of pix. To make you calmer Wimpy - the photos from which I want to remove the logo aren't property of the person who put the existing logo on it. They're just accidental pictures floating on the net. To be exact - they're property of the Internet :) The person found them and put his logo on it.

    And I'm still looking for better solution.. (if there is any)

    I'm calm.........zzzzzzzzzzzz
    If you find a better way I would want to hear about it as I spend a lot of time with Photoshop.
    Edit: I bet that whoever removed your logo took about 2 mins. to do it. ;)

    ok, thank you very much.
    I heard that it's possible to cut out carefully the text(logo) (in this case "copyrigted by mateusz")in photoshop than write some kind of script that can process a large number of images with the same text on it. But I don't know photoshop to good (my friend does) but neither I or him know anything about writing such scripts in PS.
    (sorry for my english)

    thanx for your help,

    Can you show the effect ? I belive it may be quite simple for this particular image, because there is only one color (white or red) under the certain letter of the logotext. Maybe I've choosen a bad example. All complicate where there are many colours in different shade (tone) under one letter of logotext. What complicate it more is when you have 1000 different (size, colours) images to process.

    It is starting to sound like you have a business of removing watermarks from other peoples images!
