How to Remove a Watermark From a Photo: 5 Easy Ways

• by Steve Clark

If you don't want to just crop out the watermark, we'll show you how to remove a watermark from a picture using Photoshop, GIMP,, Pixlr X, and Apowersoft Online Watermark Remover.

1. How To Remove A Watermark In Photoshop

Photoshop is pretty smart when it comes to eliminating watermarks from photos. With your photo open, select Magic Wand Tool, which cleverly selects entire areas like the letters and logos of a watermark. You can also use the Pen Tool or Lasso Tool to make your selection.

Draw your cursor over each letter or image—remember to hold down Ctrl (Windows) or Cmd (Mac) as you click to select multiple elements of the watermark.

It won't be the perfect selection. To fix this, go to Select > Modify > Expand. In the dialog box, choose how many pixels the selection needs to be expanded by.

Since the Magic Wand Tool in our example is close to the edge of the watermark, we're only shifting the selection up by 2px, but yours may differ. Click OK to confirm.
