    I have a set of pictures, all of them with the date at the bottom-right
    I want to get rid of the dates.
    Of course I will take a lot of work to restore the background in some of
    them, and before going ahead I would like to know if any expert could give
    me some advice, tips, do's and don'ts, recommended filters, etc.

    Thanks a lot everybody!!

    Use the clone tool and/or healing brush. It depends a lot on the surrounding
    area beneath the date stamp.

    Hire someone to do it for you, or hire someone to teach you.

    Little news for you... there is nothing "beneath" the date stamp.

    Your choices are not everyone's.

    Your opinions are irrelevant.

    or ask in the ps newsgroup and ignore the answers from anyone called voivod

    he's totally irrelevant to this newsgroup

    Agreed. And I sometimes find it easier to first select the date area,
    eyedropper the color of the date and use replace color to manipulate the
    color of it close to the main color of the surrounding area... like when
    it's over grass and stuff (ugh!). Then proceed with the clone stamp.

    I've only got PS 6, so I haven't had the joy yet of using the healing

    That is news to me. Sorry, I didn't have the benefit of seeing the pics
    I'll just have to invest in a crystal ball. Where did you get yours from ?

    I'll just have to invest in a crystal ball. Where did you get yours
    $14 to see the future. Sounds like a bargain ;)
    ..... or perhaps not.

    Leaving the children alone to sqabble.....

    another way is to lasso an area similar to the area which would have been
    under the date stamp, apply a feather of about 5 pxl, then Cntl+J which
    copies this selection to a new layer. Go to Move tool and place it over the
    date stamp. then go to the new layer and apply a layer mask while holdiomng
    alt. this reveals the date stamp again. But now then brush way over it
    with your brush set to white and it will disappear.

    Quite easy really

    I think that what he means is that there is nothing "under" the date stamp, as
    it IS the image. Now, the background that surrounds the date stamp is what
    would be under it, if it were not for the date stamp, or if the date stamp was
    on a Layer in PS. Semantics yes, but correct.

    Make sure you add this one also.

    Goofballs think that if they erase part of the image there will be something
    "under" the erased part.

    I see what he means, but it must be obvious, even to the grizzled old tosser
    Voivod, that the OP was
    referring to what would be under the stamp had it not been there.
    Semantics, yes. Also ..bollocks.
