When editing an image in the Adobe Photoshop application, use the eyedropper feature to select sample points of your image. A sample point is a portion of the image that you want to touch up and contains only a single set of pixels. Select a sample point of your image at any time, then remove the sample point using the eyedropper menu from the eyedropper palette.

  1. 1

    Open the Adobe Photoshop application on your computer. Click the "File" option from the top toolbar menu.

  2. 2

    Select the "Open" option. Locate and click on the image you want to work with. Click on the "Open" button.

  3. 3

    Hold down the "Option" key on your keyboard for a Mac computer or the "Alt" key for a PC computer, and select the sample point you want to remove from the picture.

  4. 4

    Click the "Eyedropper" button from the top right corner of the eyedropper palette and a shortcut menu will appear.

  5. 5

    Select the "Delete Sample Point" option and the sample point will be automatically removed.
