how to complete an uncompleted image in PS
on Oct 25, 2014 at 8:46:54 am


I'm a beginner in Photoshop, I have a very simple image with a sun circle but unfortunately the top and bottom ends of the image is missing.

This may sound trivial but is there a way to complete the image in PS?

Thank you in advance!

I would not bother trying to fix that manually - since it is such a simple image, why not recreate it from scratch, and fake it?

- add a solid color layer with the orange background colour
- add a white vector circle with perhaps a yellow stroke. Convert to a smart object, and apply a slight gaussian blur to fade out the edge
- add a larger circle in the background, apply a circular gradient and pick up the colours from the original.

Some fine-tuning, and done! For a more realistic effect I also added a bit of granularity to the edges for the "Sun", and applied a bit of noise.

PS I did this in Photoline, but the process is exactly as I described. This is arguably easier & quicker to pull off in Photoline than in Photoshop, because of Photoshop's rather horrible outdated and quirky gradient editor. In Photoline any gradient can be edited "in place".
