how to get rid of A/C text about aircraft in screenshots

Postby darrenvox » Mon Feb 24, 2020 9:05 pm

if you constantly get the text written about your aircraft or ai aircraft in screenshots and want to edit this, then open up your image in any free or payware image editor and click on the select tool, and then hit the "delete key", once you are there hit on the clone stamp and mouse your way around the square markers/transparency squares and do your best to blend the background it to look like it was...

if it's too fuzzy or isn't perfect use any of the effects/blurs to your liking...

when ready hit save and you are done...

if reading this is too hard on the eyes or you need a chance to figure it out another way here's a youtube vid with the same thing

Good tip. We all have our own pet ways of doing things but I wouldn't use the selection tool at all. Quicker & easier to use the Clone tool to cover the offending text without selecting it first.

Easier still: unless you particularly want the Aircraft Labels showing you can disable them from Traffic settings in the sim.

that's true as well, but I use the select and cut tools cause I am not good at doing anything with drawing with mouse and selecting very well to an exact perfection so that's how I do it!!

Fair enough. As I said, we all have our own pet methods. ;)
