Question Removing wire fence from photos

I had recently taken some pictures at the zoo, and some of the pictures have the animals behind a wire fence. Depending on the zoom and aperture settings I used, some of the pictures have the wire mesh very distinctly, while in others its more hazy. Is there a way in photoshop elements to get rid of this? I tried using the clone tool, but wasnt very successful in removing the wire meshed fence from my pictures.

Thanks in advance for your help

You won't be able to remove in photoshop. The key to shooting through mesh is to use an aperture in the 2.8-5.6 range on a telephoto lens that is place quite close to the mesh. Will likely need to focus manually as well.

You could try a plugin called wire worm.

Hi happyncool ...

... and welcome to the Village

Wire is the very devil to remove ... usually its a matter or zooming in close and trying to clone over it but its very difficult to get a good result.

Yes, it can be done...check out the lioness in my Elements gallery. There was a chain link fence across the whole picture because I couldn't get close enough to block out the fence, I removed it using the clone tool. It was very labor intensive but I'm quite pleased with the result.

Thanks! The wire worm tool seems to be doing the trick. It takes quite a bit of patience, but its well worth it.
