Now create a new layer and use Clone Stamp Tool(S). Pick a soft brush, and set the size of the clone stamp so it will cover the object you want to remove.

Use Alt-click to confirm your source pixels. The cursor will change into crosshairs. The moment you click, the cursor will change and show the pixels you’ve cloned. Now start painting over the object you want to remove.
