Remove a Photobomber Using Content-Aware Fill
One of the best and easiest ways of removing anything from your photos in Photoshop is using the Content-Aware Fill.
The Content-Aware Fill is one tool that seems almost magical when you first use it. It allows you to fill in selections with content instead of a color.
In the example in this video, I show you how to remove a photobomber from a photo by simply making a selection around her.
Then press Shift Backspace (Mac: Shift Delete) to bring up the Fill dialog box. Then selecting Content-Aware as the Fill will look at the surrounding pixels of the selection to generate the fill.
As you see, the photobomber instantly disappears, and the photo looks perfect. This command works best with backgrounds that do not have too much detail.
Remove People from Background With the Patch Tool
If the Content-Aware Fill does not work, you can try the Patch Tool to remove anything from a photo in Photoshop.
The Patch Tool is part of the Healing Brush set of tools. These are the tools that you will use for all your retouching needs. The Patch Tool primarily repairs larger areas of an image or eliminates any distractions or blemishes.
The advantage of the Patch Tool over Content-Aware Fill and other retouching tools is that it uses a selection-defined area to sample from. So you can decide what areas to use as a reference for texture and lighting.

Remove a Car From a Background Using the Clone Stamp Tool (Advanced)
If you really want to get your hands dirty and get ultimate control, then consider using the Clone Stamp Tool, which copies pixels from one area onto another.
The Clone Stamp Tool is the easiest tool to understand but the most powerful in many ways. This tool simply copies pixels from one area to another. But the real power comes with the Clone Source Panel, which allows you to control how the pixels are painted onto your document.
The Clone Source allows you to scale, flip, rotate, and offset the source, meaning you have total control over how you paint in those pixels.
