Other tool than clone stamp for removing artifacts?

How do I remove the outlines of a person that I removed from the image?

What I am doing is I take big spread size images and I save their objects as separate files, and then I reconstruct the image as a collage.

That would allow me to add extra objects into the image, to omit some of the objects, and I do this because I am creating a collage magazine layout, meaning that there will be text chunks added.

So I will combine the objects of this image with text objects so that I will partly recreate the image, but it might be slightly differently composed, to make space for the text.

I only know the clone stamp tool for this purpose, but only using that I am afraid that I would leave artifacts, so I wonder if there is any AI or automated tool for removing "ghost" part of images, like this countour left from a removed person?

What should I Google to find some good articles? I think I am lacking the terminology here.

The person was removed by selecting it then content aware fill.

The Spot healing brush tool set to Content.Aware will get you a long way.

I used it on your screenshot, and also used the Color mixer/HSL tab of the Camera Raw filter to set saturation to -100 for red, orange, purple and magenta to get rid of the red blotches.

This was quick an dirty, so the grey wall now has a colder tone, but with some fine tuning you can probably get it warmer wihtout any red blotches.

I don't use Clone Stamp much anymore.

 

The Patch Tool is an effective way to replace unwanted pixels with pixels from another part of your image.  I use it often in retouching.

Also the Spot Healing Brush is another good tool to try.

Also, if it’s a common problem to have those hard leftover outline edges, that might be because the selection is too tight. If so, when you create a selection outline of a person, see if it helps to choose Select > Modify > Expand, expand the selection by 2 or 3 pixels, and then remove the person.
