I feel so daft at the moment! I downloaded a trial of PS (further to my previous question about PS or LR) and am trying to remove a toilet sign from a door.
Do you think I can figure it out? I've looked online at the tutorials, I've experimented with the tools, but I seriously cannot figure it out and realise this is why I've never done anything other than basic editing before!
So frustrated! Can anyone explain it in the simplest of terms to me?

Unless you are set on learning how and doing it yourself, omeone could do it for you, quicker and easier than explaining.

Can you clone it out?
Meaning you select a section to clone from and then brush over the toilet sign, making the area the same as the cloned area.

How detailed is the area around the toilet sign? I guess it would be hard to say without actually seeing the photo first, as there are different ways that it could be done, dependent on what you are actually dealing with.

If there's a blank section of the door you can replace the sign with, select an area slightly larger than the sign, feather the edges, copy and paste. This will give you a separate layer of the new section. Drag it onto the sign and adjust it so it covers it. Once you're happy with it, flatten the layers and use the clone tool to sort out any mismatching areas.

I have a few photos to edit and really do need to learn to do it myself. I can't upload the pics as they have lots of children in them and I don't have permission to upload. They are for school and I've been roped in to it! I'm relatively happy with the photos, but couldn't do anything with the background, so now I need to edit it.
I will try cloning. It must be me today, it's all so frustrating! Hopefully if I can figure out a few basics, things won't take me quite as long. I can't even seem to clone at the moment - think I need a break!

Cloning is your best bet. Happy to help if you need any, just send me a pm.
