I wanted to share this video from PHLEARN on how to remove distractions from your image in Photoshop (cables, and whatever). He does this example on an interior shot, so it should serve as a good lesson to people who don't know how to do this.
Yes, I think all real estate photographers need to know how to do these cleanup fixes for interior and exterior shots.
It's important for real estate photographers to see this video tutorial as a Photoshop technique lesson. Real estate photographers typically don't want to take out wall heaters and some of the other items he's taking out. But there are many things like light cords and stuff sitting around that don't look good.
I can still remember the time I shot a beautiful master bath for a listing I was shooting for my wife. She went ballistic because I left a drawer ajar. Being able to close the drawer in Photoshop saved me a trip back!
