removing glare in photoshop?

Hey all, i got my artwork photographed and while i was planning on using the pictures for prints, i noticed most of the photos have a fair amount of glare. the paintings are quite textured and glossy. I tried using a cpl on my smartphone to see if i could reshoot them, but no dice. also, the quality of the pictures from the photographer are much better than what i am producing.

Is it possible to remove the glare from them using photoshop or anyother manipulation program?

cheers

Re: removing glare in photoshop?

It's possible to decrease it. Take the photo, then turn the painting 45 degrees. Don't move the lights. Just turn the painting on its side. Take another photo. Turn the painting 45 degrees again (so now it's upside-down) and take another photo. Do this again so you end up with four photos, all having glare on them IN A DIFFERENT PLACE from the same lights/windows/whatever.

In Photoshop, choose Panorama and merge the four photos. The glare will be pretty much gone. I have done this when I got glare from glossy paint or when I forgot to take a good photo before I varnished. It works.

Harold Roth is a genius! I'm going to try that too! I'm certainly no photographer so Ive always blamed by poor photography skills. but this might just work!
Thanks!
