I need to remove the chairs and umbrella. What I’ll do is to copy the nearby pixels of beach sand, water, and sky, and paste them on the area where chairs and umbrella are present.

So, for now, I am choosing my source as the sand.

Step 2: Paint the Target

Now that I have selected my source, I am going to paint those pixels onto my target. When you do that, you’ll see a cursor that moves synchronously with your cursor. This cursor denotes the pixels that are being copied.

Step 3: Refine the Result

If you do it multiple times, your result should look like below.
