I have an iPad, from which I've frequently uploaded pictures to the WoV forum.

How do you cross out a name or a face from a picture you'd like to post on the WoV forum?

I've seen fellow posters do this, but I don't know how to do it myself.

The remaining parts of the picture still show a clear representation of what I'm trying to share.

Thanks for your help,

LW

I would assume Photoshop.

Photoshop is best. Microsoft photo editor works, too & is free with some versions of Windows. In a pinch, ms paint works, too.

Thank you both, folks! I shall endeavor and post my results.

Hell, you can even do that type of stuff in MS Word or Excel.

If the picture is on an IPad, I imagine there's an Edit button somewhere when viewing the picture. There's probably a feature that let's you draw on it.

DJ, before I go hunting to download Photoshop, perhaps you can clue me in with an example or brief explanation? Appreciate the help. BTW, I don't have Microsoft Office loaded on my iPad, only Documents and Sheets. Meanwhile, I'll experiment pasting a picture into Documents and see if I can cross out names. Thanks!

That would be best, as Photoshop costs money. After you paste your picture into a document, click on it so the outline with the little boxes on the edges appears. Then on the top menu, a category called "format" should show up. Click on that, and you'll be able to crop, overlay with blocking boxes, etc. Group it together if you use masking boxes, and save it as an image (with a new name), like a .jpg . Then you can upload it to a photo site and share it.

Yes, there's an Edit button, but the features are limited to cropping & resizing when a picture is pasted into "Documents" and then viewed on an iPad. Thanks for trying though, I haven't given up yet!

Thanks, BBB. Same response as that given to Deucekies. "Documents" just doesn't have those features. I'm still searching for other Mark-up apps, though. I chose not to install MS Office because of the pricing, so that's on me.

Try searching at osxdaily.com.
Don't forget, "FREE" is a four letter word.
