Photocropping someone out of a picture?

Hi...not sure if someone can help here, but I'm trying to get the person in the background in the upper left part of this picture out of the picture:

girls.jpg

A friend in the picture wants to use it for cards, but the person in the background kinda just popped up. Is it possible to take that person out and making that area of the background blend together so the photo still looks uh professionalish?

    Yes. Use photoshop.

    Yes. Use photoshop.

    Ok...I have the picture open in photoshop and I lassoed the head out. I now have a white blob in that space. What the hell am I supposed to do now?

    Or...any tutorials you can point me to? I mean I could just fill the area, yeah, but it needs to look "professional," as if the girl was never there in the back.

    2 options. Either use the clone tool to "fill in" the person with similar textures from the surrounding area (easy to do, hard to do right).
    Or, if youa re using this for a card, simply remove the entire background including the person. This way you can use the background for something like "Merry Christmas" or whatever and not have everything behind the words be a busy mess of colors.

    It does all depends exactly what you are planning to do with it.. and obviously if you were trying to make this be a picture people would maybe frame somewhere, the first option is the only option.. it just takes some time and patience to do well.

    Use the clone stamp tool - select a piece of the background to clone, and stamp away. It won't look 'perfect,' but it should do the job.

    You should use the burn or blur tool and just blur her out.

    Really fast and dirty, you can do way better.
    It took me longer to u/l it then it did to do the work.

    Clone stamp to remove and replace, and blur tool to clean it up.

    If I were doing it for myself, I would mask the people and blur the background to make them standout a bit more too.

    this can be easily done with clone stamp, but is that a resized picture? If it isn't, UL the biggest vesion
