    I was wondering how I would be able to remove the license plate numbers and letters without taking them off.

    I know I will need a photo editing program which I have, but exactly what needs to be done to do so.

    Any tutorials?


    This is how I would like it to look:

    KAC 947




    You can do it in paint, just try to match the color of the plate, and paint over it.

    Alright thanks, and I take it the KAC was the tags?

    How did you get them, some kind of effect?

    It's pretty visible. You can always use clone stamp tool in photoshop. If you need a free solution, you may try Gimp, I am sure it's got a similar tool, although I don't like this app very much...

    Some people just prefer to have their license plates to be taken out or blurred. We have a lot of car thieves in this area, and if the can grab a hold of your vin # or tags, it's a done deal.

    Not that they can't see it out in person, but it's just a nice way to make the owner feel that he has some protection if his car is out there on the internet.

    For instance, my brother use to own a very fast civic, and was paranoid about it being stolen, he always told me, "It's not will it get stolen, It's when will it be stolen."

    So whenever people wanted pictures, he would remove tags etc.

    Like I said above, I guess it doesn't really matter if they can see it, but its just a nice way, respective I suppose?

    You can just do it in Paint. Simply open the pic, select the Colour Match tool, and paint over the plate. Then save it as a JPG (or BMP then convert to JPG for better quality) and you'll be ready to go.

    It is even better if you remove the characters and just place random characters instead. That'll be confusing. Quite and easy job after some playing around with photoshop or gimp I guess.

    It's the license plate number. It's pretty visible.

    There are often legality issues.

    That and many people do not post plate numbers on the net becuase it makes finding specific cars for theives a LOT easiser with a known plate number. When needed, I do the same, but I do not care how it looks, they are just hidden and if it looks a little blotchy, I do not care. Plates are usually a VERY small aspect of a car pic.
