Loose Drywall Tape in Livingroom and down hall.

I do not know how I should do this but I am really wanting to try. The drywall tape on my ceiling between my living room and kitchen is loose and an eye sore. I want to know the best way to replace it, I have no issue removing but my concern is retexturing to get to half way match the existing ceiling that does not have this issue. Please help .

Going to have to cut out the old tape and replace. But to do that the area around that seam is going to have to have the texture removed to get the tape to lay flat and be able to run the drywall knife to run flat.

Post a picture of your texture.
Trying to get it to match may take a pro.
Lots of times you have to redo the whole area, meaning whole wall or ceiling.
One of the dozens of reason I hate textured anything.
