Eliminating glare from glass in photo frame

I just finished a shoot in which the subject had her framed degrees on the wall immediately behind her. Problem is, I did not notice that in the top opf the frame a couple of her degrees had reflections of one of my lights in it. Someheow I missed it during the shoot, but it's there now. The area affected is not that large, but it's annoying and your eye goes right to it.
I di not see any way to fix this in Premiere CS3.
However, is there a way to load the offending clip into Photoshop CS3 and fix the clip in PS? How would that be done? I have the "CS3 Master Collection", but am still not familiar with all Photoshop can do with video files.
Anyone ever fix video problems like this in PS before? Is the issue of fixing glare from glass in a frame fixable? Any help or advice would definately be welcome--

Hello Steve. While you certainly can do this in Photoshop, you'll be much better off using After Effects for things like this. Think of AFX as Photoshop for moving images.

Is your scene static or moving? If it's just a static interview with no camera movement at all, you can simply fake a degree (or shoot your interviewee's degree) and place it over your footage.

If your scene involves moving camera, it's a bit more tricky and you will need to use motion tracking. But it can be done in under an hour.

Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any more questions.
