A Pristine, Human-Free Photo

As you take pictures, be sure to get at least one shot of every part you want to capture. In each photo, you'll have unwanted people, but they'll move around, leaving the background consistent in every frame. It's best to use a tripod for this; if you're holding the camera yourself, try to keep the framing as consistent as possible in every photo. When you get home, open all the images in Photoshop. Choose File, Scripts, Statistics. Change the Stack Mode to Median, and then click Add Open Files and OK. Photoshop will think for a while and then produce a photo with no people in it, like magic. It took six photos to produce this human-free scene.
