Chapter 24. Fixing Photo Flaws > Putting Back What Was Never There

Putting Back What Was Never There

Sometimes you need to hide a large part of a picture, and simply don't have enough material to do so. Maybe the photo got torn too much at the edge, or it has a hole. If you use the Clone Stamp to stamp the same piece of grass, tree, or brick wall over and over, it will quickly take on a repeating pattern that you probably didn't even see in the original. The presence of the pattern sends a clear signal that you're hiding something, but not very well.

So what can you do to avoid this? In Figure 24.75, I have a pair of seagulls. The one showing us his backside really doesn't look very good. Suppose I want to stamp it out?
