Chapter 9. Take Me Away: Removing Unwant... > Cloning Away Unwanted Objects - Pg. 242

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Five: Look at the plus-sign cursor (near the middle left of the palm). That's where I sampled, but instead of moving directly to the right to clone a nearby area, I moved my brush to the top (just under the horizon on the right of the palm) and started painting. Look how much darker (and obvious) the cloning looks. That's why you have to paint very close to where you sample. If not, it's a dead giveaway. TIP: Sample often (by Option/Alt-click- ing) in different but nearby areas so that your cloning appears random, therefore avoiding repeating patterns in the waves, for example.
