Watermarks in digital images are semi-transparent labels usually identifying a copyright holder of that image. Sometimes retouching a watermark is a last resort you have to get a photo or a picture back into its natural state. This could come in handy, for instance, if you lost the original image and only have a copy with a watermark on it. So, how would you do this?

Or you can do the same trick with Inpaint in merely few minutes! So, here is how you can remove a watermark from an image in 3 simple steps:
Step 2: Use the Marker tool to select a watermark area.
