    You did a fine job removing the straps, but I gave it a shot anyways, also played with the levels,hue and sharpening certain areas.

    this is one of the best shots I've seen on here yet. Such a cute idea.
    Beautiful girl, perfect pose, wings...it's really awesome.

    thanks! Well we wanted it dark and like that for a reason... Kindof a play on the angel being bad...

    But I just can't edit the wings out good.. any tips?? Should I be using diff tools? I was using clone..

    I don't want to ask my husband for help because he edits every single one of my pics and I really wanted to do this one myself (also because its my best friend naked lol)

    this really is a nice shot. I like the lighting. I forgot to add..I would use the clone tool.

    Healing brush.

    Alternatively, I've used that obnoxious tape that you ladies use on rare occasions to keep your clothes stuck to your body. I'm sure it would hold wings on. Then you wouldn't have to worry about straps being in the shot.

    I was using the clone tool most and a little of the healing.. maybe its the technique that I'm having problems with..

    You're using the right tools. What kind of problems are you having?

    I mostly use PSP over PS, but when I clone, I find it much better to duplicate the image and use the copy as your source for the clone. Makes the clone more smooth and natural. IMO

    the edit looks fine to me cant even tell there were straps. clone tool is the best to use and maybe a bit of the blur brush or sponge brush to smooth out where you cloned if it doesn't look natural. also beautiful picture

    Maybe its the fact that I KNOW the straps were there and thats why I'm still seeing them..
