    Gimp challenge: remove logo without ruining picture

    Hi! I'm really bad at GIMP, so I thought that I'd ask the community for their help. In the included picture that I'd like to use for my desktop wallpaper, there is a "deskmod" logo in the upper left corner. I'd like to remove this logo without ruining the picture, so that there is a clean seam, similar to how it looks across the rest of the picture. How would I do this?

    Thank you!

    Note: I do not plan to redistribute this picture, so I won't be taking credit for the work of the person who made this originally and put the logo on it.

    Cut out the top right part, copy it, and paste it over the logo.

    No problem, I discovered the hard way after I spent hours airbrushing a situation similiar to yours.

    Heh, I looked at it and was thinking how nasty that would be to airbrush out. Should have thought of the copy/paste as well. It's amazing how the simple solution can be so easily overlooked.

    You just got lucky that the gradient is a top down linear gradient. That makes it pretty easy. If it were something more complex, like a radial gradient, it would be a little more complicated, but still doable.
