DELETE TOURISTS FROM TRAVEL PHOTOS
This is an awesome trick for travel photographers. Sometimes you’re at an amazing location, but there are people in the way of your shot. If you want to take a picture of a landmark and people are in your shot, you will likely spend the rest of your adult life cloning people out of the shot unless you try this technique.
Step 1: Set your camera on a tripod.
Step 2: Take a picture about every 10 seconds until you have about 15 shots, depending on how fast people are walking around.
Step 3: Open all the images in Photoshop by going to File > Scripts > Statistics. Choose “median” and select the files you took.
Step 4: Bam! Photoshop finds what is different in the photos and simply removes it! Since the people moved around, it fills the area where someone was standing with part of another photo where no one was there.

NO TRIPOD? USE A LAMP!
Want to take a group photo but don’t have a place to set the camera? Just whip the lamp shade off a lamp and screw your camera onto the lampshade-holder. The thread size of the bolt on a lamp shade is exactly the same size as the filter thread used on tripods, so your camera will easily attach. Not only will your party and indoor pictures look better, but you’ll look like MacGyver in front of the group. Not bad. This tip doesn’t come in handy every day, but you’ll like the coolest photography nerd on the planet when the situation arises.
